P is for Pontoon Picnic. . .
I’m joining Alphabe-Thursday ~ this week’s letter assignment is the letter P.
Our picnic paraphernalia was purchased at Kohl’s including the placemats, napkins & napkin Rings, fish bowls & glasses.
This place setting is not our normal boating picnic fare~ for practical purposes we typically use plastic :-)
To drink~ Pellegrino. . .
This Pontoon Picnic wouldn’t be complete without plenty of pillows.
For the purposes of these photos, we are at our pier, pretending to float on the lake :-)
For the wine drinkers we are pouring Pinot Grigio~
Our Picnic Menu includes a Turkey Panini with Provolone & Pear, Orzo Pasta Salad with Pine Nuts, and Prosciutto wrapped Asparagus. . .
This Panini is a combination of provolone, sliced pear, and turkey with apricot mustard. We prefer La Brea Rosemary Olive Oil Bread, which is available at our grocery store.
This Pasta Salad is one that is light and easy~ adapted from The Fresh Market’s deli department. . . cook your orzo according to the package directions. Add to taste: capers, toasted pine nuts, lemon juice & zest, chopped basil, parmesan, grape tomatoes & Newman’s Own Parmesan & Roasted Garlic Dressing.
This Prosciutto Roasted Asparagus is a perfect picnic side and is ready in just 5 minutes. Roast in a 400 degree oven. For Picnic Protocol and food safety tips, you can read here.
Be sure to stop by Jenny Matlock’s Aphabe-Thursday for more alphabet fun and Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday. I’m also joining Foodie Friday at Designs by Gollum and Smiling Sally for Blue Monday.
