Tonight was carpet picnic night. Many years back, Mark & I started doing a dinner where the main “dish” was a wheel of gooey melted Brie cheese. We would make other items to eat with, add a loaf of crunchy french bread and plop ourselves on the floor at our coffee table to watch a movie. Thus began the tradition of the “carpet picnic”. Today, the items have evolved, but the process is the same. When we mention to the kids we are having a carpet picnic, they are as excited as we are!
So tonight’s menu held a wheel of President Brie, a smaller wheel of Trader Joes Goat Milk Brie cheese, a little wedge of creamy Fromager d’ Affinois Blue Cheese, slices of Espresso BellaVitano cheese, roasted red grape & yellow pear tomatoes from our garden, caramelized Vidalia onions, roasted garlic, thin slices of Columbus Salame Secchi (an amazing salami we get at TJ’s), sliced green apple & of course a big loaf of crunchy Trader Joes french baguette. And don’t forget the red wine……tonights choice, Zen of Zin, 2008 Old Vine Zinfandel.
One thought on “Carpet Picnic…..”
We do this too! Cheeses, crackers, olives, It’s our favorite meal
