Picnic Totes or Picnic Baskets

Everybody has experienced picnic even once in his or her life, right? You may have brought a large blanket with you, complete set of your favorite picnic wares, foods from cheese to ham sandwiches, to all kinds of potato salad and teas. With all these things in mind every time you go on your picnic, do you ever remember where you put to carry those things? Picnic basket is a classic way of carrying your things to your picnic venue. Nowadays, modern designs were made to suit those picnickers according to their style.

Picnic baskets and picnic totes have the same functions. They both keep your utensils organized and clean, they keep your food clean and safe and they both make transporting a complete meal easier. However, there would still be a slight difference between the two.

■  Picnic baskets have two styles. (a) There is the classic picnic basket, which is usually made of either bamboo or rattan. This classic style is very lightweight and yet so durable. However, it can be very uncomfortable to bring if you will be walking to your picnic venue. (b) Now, there is the modern picnic basket, which is usually made of polyester materials. These styles of picnic baskets are fully insulated so that they can keep your beverages and food cold. These baskets are fully zipped, which makes it better for it can keep food and utensils clean and germ-free.

■  Picnic totes are different from baskets they much resemble to an ordinary tote used by students in carrying their books. The position of the straps makes it much easier to carry. In addition, totes usually can carry enough dinnerware up to four persons. However, just like a picnic basket, many totes already includes sliver wares and glasses so that you never have to bring your own dinnerware out in the picnic venue.

■  Some picnic totes are made only for wines or a combination of wine and cheese. These totes keep you wine chilled so that you can enjoy your romantic picnic. However, cheese and wine totes are not the only totes that can keep your food cold. There are available totes that you can purchase online that can keep the whole meal, same as your drinks, at its perfect temperature.

A picnic without a cake is like having dinner without having tea after, like something is missing and the meal is incomplete!

Just like what Andre Simon said, “Food without wine is a corpse; wine without food is a ghost; united and well matched they are as body and soul, living partners.”  Undeniably! But we are not saying that it is a must-have. We are not saying either that we cannot live without a piece of sweets, but the more you can’t have what you want, the more the need lingers into your senses. So why deprive yourself from the satisfaction when you can just make it? And indulge while you can have it!

Everyone has his own sweet tooth. A majority of us loves even just the idea of having a saccharine treat on our plates by just imagining that mouth-watering decadence! Much more when those ideas proceed to deed, when in fact you can actually taste it, feel it, smell it and savor every bite it can offer.  So here is a picnic recipe that is full of yumminess and there’s no doubt, it’ll also bring happiness!

Let’s face it. “A nice creamy chocolate cake does a lot for a number of people. It does for me”, says the legendary Audrey Hepburn — and of course, so it does for us! But wait for it; this is not just the creamy chocolate cake Audrey Hepburn mentioned. This is a chocolate chip Bundt cake with white chocolate glaze! It’s like a cake made only for the Mayan Goddess Ixcacao; very classy! But the best part is? You can make it at home. Easy and conventional! It looks yummy and now it’s your turn to judge.
