Picnic at the lake!

The weather has warmed up and there are wildflowers everywhere. Every tree, shrub and vine has flowers on it. It was really the time for a picnic. Dallas has a number of lakes but we are partial to Grapevine lake. The lake is huge one and has a lot of activities from the north end to the south one. City of Grapevine itself maybe one of my favorites in the metroplex. Its a old city and has a very quaint downtown area. Additionally it has a number of award winning wineries. Gaylord Texan is located there. And before I start sounding like a brochure for the city, here is what I made for the picnic, my favorite part. After all its a food blog. I made a Pesto Pasta salad, Russian sandwiches, Empanadas and got apple juice (not wine :D), oranges, chocolate chip cookies and vegetable straws from the store. Below are some pictures from out trip.

The lake was tranquil, there were some fishermen on the shore. The wildflowers were pretty in their myriad colors and the food was so much tastier then eaten at home. Go enjoy a picnic before it gets too warm...
