Last month me and Lucas went along to a great day in Delamere Forest organised by Roberts Bakery. It was a chance to try out some lovely healthy sandwich ideas and we were also introduced to their 50 Days of Summer Campaign. Sometime we can all get stuck for family fun ideas in the summer holidays, especially the affordable kind! Luckily for us, Roberts Bakery have created an inspirational guide full of healthy picnic recipes, days out, indoor activities and things to do, even from the safety of your own back garden. Some I have already planned for our summer, such as the the return of ‘The Giants’ to Liverpool and and day out to Knowsley Safari Park but some of them are totally new to me and I can’t wait to give them a go, especially the Summer Scrapbook!
We have already been testing some of the picnic recipes I picked up from the day at Delamere ready for our summer of fun. The Strawberries and Cream Sandwich was absolutely my favourite and I can’t get enough of it, it might sound a little odd at first but I promise you it tastes delicious. Here is the recipe if you want to try it yourself:
8 slices Roberts 50% White 50% Wholemeal
Approximately 8 – 10 good-sized strawberries, sliced
1 – 2 tubs cream cheese (as much as you like!)
Handful of washed rocket leaves
Freshly ground black pepper
Lay some rocket leaves on four slices of bread.
Add a generous layer of cream cheese, and top with strawberry slices. Season with black pepper, then top with the remaining bread.
To surprise your loved one when opening their lunchbox, use heart shape cutters to give this sweet sandwich the ‘ahhhh’ factor.
You can download the 50 Days of Summer pack here and I would definitely suggest that you do! I’ll be keeping it handy to give me a few tips over the summer, especially when I want to whip up something more exciting for lunch! You can also keep up with top tips from Roberts Bakery by following them on Twitter and Facebook. Enjoy the Summer!
