    My BF and I are going out for the day tomorrow and I want to be all grown up and take a picnic so this is what I'm planning...

    * Chicken skewers with cherry tomatoes, peppers and shallots served with a yogurt dip of some sort

    * Big box of salad

    * Yogurt

    * French fries

    * Blueberries

    What do you think? Oh, it'll be a red day by the way. More ideas welcome xx

    Oh someone mentioned scotch eggs at our group the other night and free on a green day.

    Wrap quorn sausage round Boiled egg then roll in couscous then put in the oven till the couscous is browned.

    Hope you enjoy your picnic.:)

    bonus for the exercise you get crushing scan brans! LOL

    Louise that sounds lovely! You could take some potato or pasta salad as an HE B just in case you need some carbs. Hmm, might need to make some chicken skewers for dinner tomorrow now :)

    Thanks everyone.

    We've had a row so aren't actually speaking at the moment, but I'm sure he'll grow up at some point - there again I have bin saying that for ages!! Hehe. He better get over it as I've got all the picnic stuff ready now too.

    Oh and get this, he declared he wants a sandwich too, so I'm going to watch him eat a chicken, bacon, stuffing and cranberry sauce sandwich on a huge white seasame burger bap. Don't forget the mayo too!

    Arrgh, so jealous. In refelection, the sandwich issue is probably why I just let him have it with both barrels!! Hehe.

    Just thought I'd mention, I tried to make those green day scotch eggs but couldn't get the quorn sausage to wrap round the egg or stick to it! Has anyone else managed to do it?
