Picnic at the Hollywood Bowl

Hapgood | Sep 8, 2010 09:57 PM

Taking mom, dad & boyfriend to the Hollywood Bowl for mom's birthday. I love cooking and planning picnics and am super excited to do this one up fancy evening picnic style.

I have a few things planned and am looking for maybe one more big food item (though I could be talked into two).

I know I am making buttermilk farro salad
I haven't tried it yet, but I have all the ingredients and it sounds awesome.

other items in consideration
A loaf of fresh bay cities bread (of course bread + farro is a lot of carbs...)

I'm thinking grapes & cubed watermelon for fruit

and some cheese (mom just discovered Humboldt fog & I have some dairy fresh veggie gouda I just picked up)

We've got brownies for dessert

Any other suggestions? We can always use the bread to make sandwiches - but I was trying to think of something else that will travel well. I have an insulated picnic set to keep things warm/ cold

I have a ton of veggies from the garden at my disposal - summer squash, cucumber, green beans

I'll have a half day on Friday to prepare.
