Welcome to August! This Month we decided to talk about all things picnics! Summer is the perfect time to get outside and enjoy those nice long sunny days. Picnics don’t have to be just in the afternoon or just in parks either. We are going to talk about having picnics at all times of the day and at many different places. We’ll provide some great easy recipes as well as tips and tricks. So get creative and get outside!
This week I’m going to talk about making breakfast on the deck, aug 10th will be the classic summer barbeque, aug 17th is the quintessential lunch at the park, aug 23rd sunset dinner by the ocean, and aug 31st is tea time on the lawn. So stayed tuned!
Breakfast on the deck reminds me of lazy summer mornings camping with my family. Waking up and going out of the RV onto the screenporch to chat and have some breakfast with family. The typical Eggs, bacon and toast were usually on the menu, cooked by my dad on the griddle, while my brother and I played cards or in my case read. It was a great way to grow up, and just one of the many ways to interpret having breakfast on a deck.
So what exactly is a deck? It’s the first thing needed in order to have breakfast on it right? I think a deck could be interpreted into many things…. Perhaps the porch/deck on your house, a 3 season room, the stoop or fire escape of your city apartment, maybe a roof patio… whatever gets you outside enjoying a nice meal with family and/or friends!
Okay, now on to the breakfast… and what better way to start breakfast than with a mimosa! Depending on how close your deck is to your kitchen largely dictates what you can make. However there are some great tasting dishes you can prep and make in advance and just heat up! Quiches and French toast casserole are two of my favorites. Another great make ahead is a simple fruit salad, or breakfast sandwiches. If you’re deck happens to have a grill on it, then you don’t even need an oven. Here are some great breakfast ideas you can make on the grill! Remember to choose the highest NuVal scoring foods when selecting your ingredients for your dishes.
So that’s all it takes. Simply pick what you’d like to make, plan and prep ahead, invite people over, heat up the food, and serve outside! Enjoy the company and the beautiful summer day!
Let us know what your favorite summer breakfasts on the deck are!
