Picnic Summer Days

eggs 020

We’ve had glorious Summer days this week, and what better way to spend lunchtime outdoors with a picnic lunch. These egg and spinach rolls are just the thing…

“Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass on a summer day listening to the murmur of water or watching the clouds float across the sky, is hardly a waste of time.”
– John Lubbock

My lunchtime break on any working day is three hours. I have the opportunity of working three kilometers from home, so it’s wonderfully close. However, lunchtime is usually a rush to eat, and get on with the everyday routine running of the home.Cleaning, shopping,washing…and more shopping!Although with this Summer weather I love exercising outdoors, taking walks and spending time photographing the things that make me happy and thankful for my lifestyle here.

So that’s where quick flash lunches are the go!

These egg and spinach rolls are delicious hot or cold and easily made the evening before in preparation of lunch or an outdoors picnic.
