PACK UP A BENTO FILLED WITH SANDWICHES, SCONES, BERRIES, AND YUMMY TREATS THEY’LL LOVE
One of our favorite ways to picnic is taking an afternoon tea to go.
Anytime in the afternoon is fine, really. But properly done, afternoon tea takes place around 4pm, and is really a full meal in itself.
It can be particularly useful for those days when you’ve got later evening dinner plans and little ones to satisfy as well. Afternoon tea is also a perfect weekend meal for get-togethers with family and friends. Pack up a bento set for the little ones and watch their delight!
Sliced egg, watercress, and mayo on multigrain toasts (shown above)
Chicken, lemon, and tarragon on baguette
Cucumber, cream cheese, and arugula on sweet white loaf
Scones and Pastries
Orange and cranberry scones* with Devon cream
Strawberries with sour cream and light brown sugar
Iced sugar cookies and coconut macaroon cake squares
Serve with hot or iced tea.
*We’ve used some muesli snacking rounds which were little people approved, of course, in place of scones in this afternoon tea bento set.
