Quick Picnic Bite

Today marks the start of the glorious Witson Bank Holiday! Ok yes, it’s now a little grey outside, but the true marvel of this Bank Holiday, is that it’s here, me and hubby are together, and we don’t really have much planned! We were hoping that timings (solicitors) would sort itself out in time for us to be moving into our new flat this weekend, so as to make use of the extra day to get settled in, but as we’re not even exchanging contracts yet I think we’re going to settle for after we get back from holiday. But more on that later… πŸ˜‰

We’re trying our best this weekend to make the most of the time we have together, as we’re both really bad at not just taking the time out, stopping and relaxing with each other. Sunday Dave has band practice, but other than that we have precious few plans which is lovely πŸ™‚ So today, we decided nip out to Shoreham, pick up a picnic bite to nibble on and sit outside Shoreham airport and watch the planes flying around. Simple pleasures πŸ™‚


We went to The Real Patisserie, a wonderful French bakery (funnily enough) with an amazing selection of all kinds of pastries, from delicate macarons to spectacular mini manage cheesecakes. We’re planning on trying out a few of these gorgeous treats so we can decide what larger version to get Dave for his birthday later in the year! They also do some pretty amazing savouries too – the fattest sausage rolls I’ve ever seen and a beautiful bacon baguette that’s saved our hunger pangs on more than one occasion! Today I opted for a grilled apple and cheese tartine, which worked even better than I could have imagined, and Dave had one of their selection of baguettes, pesto chicken salad. It should also be noted that their ‘croque’ toasties are to die for, with various fillings all smothered in good, tangy melted cheese πŸ˜€


We thoroughly enjoyed our little picnic in the car, and Dave loves anything where planes are involved :p The long weekend is certainly off to a good start πŸ™‚ Hope you enjoy yours! Let me know what you’re all doing and eating! ;p

Lotsa Love! x
