It’s a Lovely Day for a Picnic

The genius of a picnic is the ease of lying down next to a linen clad lovely after several glasses of white wine or strawberry infused rum and lemonade. What young lady can refuse an invite to picnic? You've got an instant leg up. No dry humping in public please.

Smoked Trout Salad

1 smoked trout fileted and deboned
1/4 cup minced red onion
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
1 Tbs capers
Zest of 1 lemon
Juice of half a lemon
3 Tbs olive oil
Pinch of salt
3 turns of the peppermill

Break apart the trout and mix all ingredients together in a large bowl. Serve with whole grain bread, picholines and a crisp white. Save the plastic cups for the BBQ, bring wine glasses and quote Leonard Cohen poems as you gaze into her eyes. She'll be sugar syrup by the second glass. Close the deal with fresh strawberries and rum soaked finger cakes.
