But have no fear! For in spite of the weather I have today another sumptuous hamper to giveaway to one lucky reader. This time it comes from the magical folks at Abra-ca-Debora - makers of delicious ready-to-eat pancakes (savoury and sweet) and provider of recipes for stress-free, mess-free no-bake cakes (no soggy bottoms or sunken middles!).
Anyway, here's the hamper...
- Some delicious Abra-ca-Debora Dutch pancakes (savoury and sweet)
- A jar of chutney
- A jar of Marmite
- Golden syrup
- Green and Black's chocolate
- Icing sugar
- And a lemon
And here's what you have to do to be in with a chance to win it...
As we've already had suggestions for favourite picnic sites this time I'd like to know what your 'must-have' essential picnic ingredient is - whether it be food (pork pie would be mine) or drink (a chilled rosé if I'm not driving) good book (Roger Deakin's 'Waterlog' is perfect summer reading) I want you to tell me what you have to have in your picnic hamper. Along with Abra-ca-Debora pancakes, of course.
Usual rules apply; leave a comment below between now and next Thursday after which Charlie and I will put all the entries into our virtual hat and draw out one lucky winner.
Oh, and UK entries only please... which means you all already start with something in your hamper.
An umbrella !
