This is a very quick and tasty dish great for picnic, lunchboxes or part of a main meal
Stained Glass Window Biscuits
These novelty cookies are fun to make with children. They particularly enjoy crushing the sweets and using cookie cutters to cut out shapes.
Beefy Sausage Roll
Sausage rolls make great picnic and party finger foods as they are ready-wrapped in pastry. To add a slight twist I like to use beef, but minced pork would also be good.
Yummy Salmon and Rice Salad
A lovely summery, fish dish perfect for picnics...
