Pack the per­fect bas­ket

Noosa Life and Style - - THINGS TO DO -

THE per­fect pic­nic bas­ket can be as­sem­bled in a mat­ter of min­utes with the right plan­ning.

Grab a wicker bas­ket filled with a pic­nic rug, plates, cut­lery and glasses which can be kept at the ready in a hall­way cup­board.

To fill, start with a cheese plat­ter as­sort­ment – var­i­ous cheeses (in­clud­ing hard and soft), fresh grapes, straw­ber­ries and crackers. Nat­u­rally a bot­tle of chilled cham­pagne goes well with this.

Cham­pagne (or wine, or beer or sparkling wa­ter) al­ways goes well with a hot chook roll, too.

So pick up a roast chicken, pre-made salad and fresh bread rolls (which are al­ways su­per easy to as­sem­ble while you sit tak­ing in the view) at the su­per­mar­ket on your way to the pic­nic spot.

You will need:
