Did you ever notice how much better things taste when eaten outside? Of course, anything cooked over an open fire is great, especially if it involves chocolate. This time of year, the warmth of a toasty fire just makes outdoor food even better. But really, even a bag of raisins, when sun-warmed and eaten trailside, becomes something special. Or a crisp, cool apple on a crisp, cool fall day? Heavenly.
It's always a good time of year for a picnic. You don't need to make it fancy-so don't stress if you don't have a tablecloth and fancy picnic basket. Just bring your everyday snacks to a nice place outdoors and enjoy.
