Birthday picnic menu ideas?

Sirrith | Aug 7, 201310:45 AM

Hi everyone. I'm planning to take my girlfriend on a surprise birthday picnic later this month, and would like some help planning the "menu". Ideally I'd like to keep this French-themed.

I'm going to be making chocolate mousse cake with fresh fruit for dessert, so I don't really want anything too heavy, and the weather gets quite hot and humid where I live (I don't have a cooler and will be relying on ice packs and frozen drinks to keep things fresh).

I was thinking I could make some mini crust-less blue cheese quiches or just a regular medium sized quiche (with crust). Alternatively, I could make bread and bring along some nice cheeses (but not sure because of the weather, and I make quiche better than I make bread).

I'm not sure if this is going to be enough, or if it might be too heavy for a hot summer day, and would appreciate any opinions you would care to offer. I'm open to any other ideas you might have about mains/starters, but the chocolate mousse cake is a must (its her favourite).
