What's for lunch?

It’s time to raid the fridge!
It’s amazing what you can create with just a few ingredients. Sandwiches, salads, pasta and fruit all make for a tasty lunch.

Take inspiration from nature and try making a picnic using fruit and vegetables that are in season. In spring you could add peas and green beans to cooked pasta or make a salad using new potatoes.

Try an indoor picnic

Have you ever tried a carpet picnic? Put a cosy blanket on the floor and have your picnic indoors. Why not invite all your favourite toys and have a teddy bears picnic?

Top Tip:

After you've eaten lie down on your picnic blanket and look at the sky - what can you see? Try spotting characters and animals in the clouds – cloud watching is no. 33 in our '50 things'.
