Picnic Food

With a stonking hot summer upon us picnics are always a good idea.

I thought that I should try making some real picnic food - picnic pie and mini meat loaves.

The picnic pie was a bit of disaster as I didn't put enough eggs in it to hold it all together but it was rather tasty.

Mini Meat Loaves - Inspired by Paella Days

A red onion
Chopped capers, sundried tomatoes and olives
Herbs (fresh, dried, whatever, basil, oregano, parsley etc)
Bread crumbs
Tomato paste
Red wine

Mix lots, and make into little balls (little muffin trays are great), top with pinenuts and cook till done (20mins at 180 at a guess). Super yummy when cold...
