Love picnics

Posted by Dawn at Saturday, May 21, 2011
As a kid growing up, I always enjoy picnics at the park or beach. My ideal picnic food would actually be bee hoon with chicken curry but of course, my kids do not like eating that for now since its spicy.

Anyway, it was the enjoyment of food and fun at the same time. So with that in mind, picnics has been a regular activity in our family.


Today, we brought the family to a nearby park for a picnic. I prepared homemade beef and chicken burger. Had to make chicken as my helper doesnt really eat beef.

I marinated the beef with Worcestershire sauce, salt, herbs, egg and biscuit crumbs (crushed cream crackers) to bind it all together and make it slightly crispy.


Also prepared fried bacon strips, grilled portabello mushroom to add it into the burger.

Initially, I was afraid the kids would not eat it as that was my only food! But I needed to try and I just knew I couldnt always give in to what they want. My kids need to learn to adapt and be flexible.




Glad they ate and seemed to enjoy it. Phew!

However, it started to drizzle. So we moved to the shelter to carry on our picnic.


Despite the light rain, we still had a great time bonding together as a family!



Looking forward to my next picnic with the family!
