So this week is, was, has been National Picnic Week. There’s a day, a week, a month  for everything now, did you know there is a National Rebecca Day too and it’s on the 4th of July – true story that so if you are Rebecca then you are welcome my darling. I plan to go to aqua, do a bit of social media editing and probably bake myself something nice on that day to celebrate.

Oh Rebecca you’ve gone off on one again…

That’s right this was a post about National Picnic Week or #nationalpicnicweek (let’s get the hashtag in there for optimal SEO shall we – blogger joke)

I didn’t see the point of baking like crazy for this post as I’ve done all the hard work already so here are a few of my favourite recipes that would work brilliantly for a pimped up gluten free picnic.

Savoury Gluten Free Picnic Recipes

So I know I keep going on about it on social media (if you don’t know what I’m talking about then you clearly don’t follow me on Twitter and if not why not! puts hands on hips and taps foot accusingly) BUT – these two sausage roll recipes are amazingly awesome baked and cooled for picnics. None of your iddy-biddy sausage rolls for me, oh no. I want a big slice please and to wash it down with a white pino too.

Next up you have a recipe that I developed whilst I lay in bed one night and couldn’t sleep, this used to happen a lot when I had more time on my hands but times were equally as stressful. The concept is utterly bonkers but they honestly work and mean that I can still enjoy a timeless classic with my free from picnic.

Gluten Free Picnic Bakes

We all know I like a cake, or two, or three – oh who am I kidding I LOVE ALL THE CAKES! Here’s a few that travel well in Tupperware and behave themselves when cutting on an uneven surface. Plus need to be eaten minus the posh cake fork and just shoved into your mouth before the wasps get wind of it! See, I’ve thought of everything for you!

Delicious Smoothies Perfect for Picnics

Smoothies are so simple to make and I have to admit my favourite way to get my 5-a-day, or 7-a-day or rainbow of fruits and veg or whatever the latest advice is! Rather than taking fruit to your picinc all cut up into bite size pieces (and an instant magnet to every wasp in a five mile radius) why not have your fruit in smoothie form in individual flasks or cooler bottles these are a few ideas for flavour combinations but to be fair the possibilities are endless.
