Not the lily of the valley!!!!!

Although the photos are gorgeous, you might not want to have the lily of the valley on the table, in case someone has the bright idea to try a leaf or blossom, (pictured on the tuna pita). ALL parts of the plant, and even the water from the vase, are very poisonous if eaten or drunk.
It's a common weapon in Victorian-era murder mystery books.

Best Beach Sandwich

Bread of your choice, mustard, mayo, ham, sweet pickle/bread, and butter pickle sandwich slices, add a layer of Doritos. I don't know why it works, but is so good? Particularly as a beach picnic!

Great Summer Sandwich

On any bread of your choice, spicy swiss chard pesto with slices of avocado and sliced boiled egg. Breakfast, lunch or dinner to go

Summer Sandwiches

Breakfast or a snack-bagel or English muffin with cream cheese and sliced fresh peach.

Toasted homemade bread, mayo, sliced tomato & cucumber.
