日誌diary • 夢幻草地野餐初體驗 // spring picnic @ schabarum park
how was your long weekend??!
memorial day完成了一件想了非常久的小夢想! 那就是 – 野餐!!!
和幾個好朋友一起享受陽光微風 那種很lay back的愜意~
(雖然我不是dog person, 但狗還是挺可愛的啦!)
how was your long weekend??! mine was great :D although it's so hard to keep myself awake at work after this 3 days weekend.... (someone pass me a cup of espresso please?)
anyhoo, i accomplished one of my many tiny dreams during the memorial weekend, which is... picnic! i've always wanted to sit on a pretty blanket in the park, with some light simple gourmet foods, and enjoy the sunny breeze together with a few closed friends. just lay back and chill. i think i've been dreaming for it for like 10 years hahaha, and i finally had my first ever picnic yesterday! yay! and not just with my loved ones, but also 3 cutie dogs :D (even though i'm not a dog person, but they are still cute!)
我們去了rowland heights的schabarum park
第一次進去, 裡面好像蠻大的, 有很多設施 還可以騎馬!
我選了樹下的草地, 雖然當天沒太陽, 但就覺得樹下比較有fu…哈哈
we went to schabarum park in rowland heights. never been there before. it's actually a pretty big park! it has many facilities, hiking trials, and even horse riding! but we only stayed at one of the picnic area this time. (btw there's a $6 parking fee, if you don't have tons of stuff to carry then i suggest to park in the plaza across then walk here).
after everyone arrived, we began setting up our blanket and all the plating..etc. i chose a spot under the trees, there're tiny flowers and leaves fallen down onto our blanket & food whenever the wind blows~ kinda romantic huh? lol
姐姐做的kimchi deviled eggs 泡菜惡魔蛋, 好吃到一個誇張!! 有人想知道食譜我再問她~
deviled eggs 通心粉沙拉 也很讚! 我喜歡甜甜的pasta salad –v–
sis made the kimchi deviled eggs.. omg it was gooood!! i'll ask her for recipe if anyone's interested in how to make them~
the deviled eggs pasta salad was yummy too! i just love those semi-sweet pasta salad ❤
我做的簡單三明治: honey oats bread 抹上/奶油+dijon+黑胡椒 mix/
夾mozzarella, 火腿, 番茄, 和酪梨
然後用wax paper包起來, 最後再繫上緞帶 綁緊!
(其實本來要用brown twine 可是家裡沒有)
i made the simple yet delicious sandwiches! i used honey oats bread with butter+dijon mustard+black pepper mix. placed some mozzarella, ham, tomato, and avocado slices. then wrapped them with wax paper & tied it up with ribbon! (was thinking brown twine but i don't have any at home :/ )
they still turned out cute tho :D yummy as well~
和橄欖油 葡萄醋 海鹽 現磨黑胡椒 和feta cheese一起拌勻
立刻列入favorite fruit salad之一! 大家一定要試試!
watermelon cucumber salad:
watermelon diced, cucumber sliced; mix with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, feta cheese crumbs, black peppers, and pinch of sea salt. i was a little worry that sweet and salty together will taste funny, but this fruit salad was actually very good like beyond my expectation! surely it has become one of my favorite fruit salad!!
fruity green tea: boil about 6 cups of water, then put in 4 tea bags. after green tea has chilled, squeeze in 1 lemon juice & 1 orange juice, finish up with a little sugar and honey. i also add some strawberry cubes into the pitcher. the green tea was not too sweet, but has a fruity aroma : )
(acrylic water pitcher from muji)
這天沒有太陽, 但也不冷, 算是很完美的野餐天氣!
狗狗們也很開心, 爆衝的爆衝 打滾的打滾 追松鼠的追松鼠 偷吃的偷吃 賣萌的賣萌 LOL
the weather was not super sunny, but not cold either, perfect for picnic!
all 3 dogs are having a good time as well - running around, rolling on grass, chasing squirrels, eating our foods when we looked away, and just being cute. LOL. mr. liao even became one-day professional dog-walker.. haha!
it was so much fun & intimate! i can't wait for the next picnic :D
who wants to join??
