Summer Picnic

On Sunday ,me and Krysta planned a friend get together, which was a picnic and swim at our nearest lake.We had about 8-9 people show up and everyone pitched in to bring some food. It was full of laughter, amusement and catching up on old times.Krysta has a couple interesting posts about the picnic.Including
photos turned into cute doodle art.

For the picnic, I made some homemade salsa and  dill dip to go along with some tortilla mini rounds.I also had homemade baking, which included blackberry mini muffins and "Rich And Fudge Brownies" .The brownies and mini muffins were eaten in no time at all.

The mini blackberry muffins were a vibrant purple shade and were very moist in texture. They had a great blackberry flavor.They were a hit at the picnic and I definitely should of brought more along.The brownies definitely lived up to their title and I haven't found any other recipe to compete with it.

I recommend trying these recipes out for yourself.
