End of Summer Picnic

When hills and woods or seashore are in easy walking distance, why should we let these beautiful fall days go by without eating at least one meal a week out-of-doors like the Victorians did? There is no better stimulus for fading appetites than plenty of fresh air; food that would hardly be touched in the dining room quickly disappears when served in the open air. It is true that packing a picnic basket means some work, but at times it may be a far easier task than to cook a hot dinner and clear up afterwards. When at home during the week with children, remember that young ones are often as well satisfied to picnic in the garden as to go miles away. An old-fashioned Victorian picnic would be a charming interlude on a crisp Autumn day. Watch this charming video then read full story.
