Beach Picnic

Beach Picnic

Summertime is perfect for outdoor dining, but sometimes the best spots require forethought and a reservation, or you're in for a long wait. Last week, my husband and I took advantage of a beautiful San Diego sunset and brought a picnic to the beach. To keep things easy and low-key, we heated up some Trader Joe's frozen Indian food (which is surprisingly tasty), packed a bottle of sparkling water, and headed for the shores. I'll be doing this again frequently - it's perfect for a cheap date night or gathering with friends.
