It’s picnic month on She Eats! Tasty treats giveaway

picnic month / SHE-EATSBecause everything tastes good eaten on a blanket!

I have decided to declare picnic month here on SHE EATS: a) because we had some sunny days recently and so that means summer could finish any time soon and b) because it’s always the right time to enjoy posh nibbles with friends.

So this month you can expect a picnic themed Desert Island Dish linky to share your recipes, some picnic friendly recipes and a look at some top picnic spots around the north west. But first, how about a little picnic giveaway?

Giveaway: picnic treats

I’ve a bundle of treats for one lucky reader, that should help your picnic go swimmingly.Opies picnic goodies / SHE-EATS

Family owned Opies have been producing food since 1880 and will be a familiar name for many. In your picnic pack you will find:

  • Pickled gherkins
  • Cocktail onions (you know, the tiny ones that are addictive!)
  • Capers (ideal for giving crunch and tang to your salads)
  • Lemon slices (for the G&T!)

We also have a bottle of Lingham’s famous Chilli Sauce – created during the British Colonial era, it was made sweet and spicy to appeal to the British palette. Today, it is loved by chefs and home cooks for it’s versatility as a dipping sauce and marinade.Barry Norman pickles Linghams Chilli / SHE-EATS

 Finally, there is a jar of Barry Norman Pickled Onions.  The Victorian family recipe of Barry Norman for traditional pickled onions are described as “the only pickled onion with a homemade flavour”.

It’s easy peasy to enter- just follow the instructions below. Entries close Monday 7th August at midnight. Good luck!
