We love taking quick day trips around the Capital Region and exploring all of our wonderful surroundings. (In fact, we did a whole cover story about where to go nearby back in 2019.)
225 recipe writer Tracey Koch developed a great take-along menu for that issue as well. It’s perfect for picnics while you’re out adventuring, so we thought we’d dig it out of the archives now that COVID-19 restrictions are loosening.
The foods—like Sticky Balsamic Glazed Chicken, Homemade Shallot and Chive Boursin-style Cheese, and Lemon Mascarpone Icebox Pies in Jars—are all easy to prepare and pack, and will make for a great south Louisiana outdoor lunch this spring.
