I can’t believe summers already whizzing by. I’m still holding on to my list of summer things planned at the beginning of the season and I’m not even halfway through it. But still I’m happy about the one that I can tick off – a summer picnic! Last weekend, some of us from Teabox packed a picnic basket and headed for that big lungspace in the city centre – Cubbon Park. While the entire city was still warm and perspiring, Cubbon Park managed to take us by surprise and provided a much needed respite from the heat with it’s shade and grass.
With flowers strewn everywhere, it was a gorgeous sight when we reached at 9 in the morning. We put out our picnic spread, took those chilled iced tea carafe’s out, and sat back to enjoy the day.
And for those who’d like to try some of our picnic dishes, we are happy to present a series of recipes with the first one being these Wholewheat Blueberry Muffins. It was the surprise of the lot, made with whole wheat and yet, moist, soft and absolutely delicious!
Here’s the recipe and I really hope you enjoy it!
Serve with a cup of English Breakfast tea or the Citrus Splash Iced Tea if you are on a picnic like us.
