This weekend instead of hiking we went on a beach picnic with another (awesome and super fun) couple. It was “Corgi Day” at the beach and we all love animals so we decided to go see all the corgis. There were soooooo mannnyyyy corgis (over 500). We saw corgi puppies, corgis with cowboy hats, corgis in tutus, corgis in bathing suits, corgis with bows, etc.
We split up the food preparation and each couple brought a side, entree, and dessert and we had so much awesome food. There were mimosas, couscous salad, corn salad, pesto sandwiches, spring rolls, rum balls, snickers bars and these lemon (meringue-ish) cups. We ended up cooking until 1 am Friday night because we got home late. Due to a lack of dinner I was a krabby patty but Eric whipped up a great meal, which made things a lot better.
When we got to the beach a really cute Corgi, named Momo, adopted us (probably because we had so much food). Momo was sooo close to having a bite of Eric’s sandwich….next time we should probably bring a few doggy treats.
It turned out to be a gorgeous day for a beach picnic! Sunny, 75F outside and not too windy. After we ate we went for a walk on the beach (what an eventful walk hahahaha), played cards, listened to music, played guitar (not me ha), and the boys played soccer. All in all I would say it was a successful day 🙂
These lemon cups were yummy and super easy! The store bought pillsbury pie crust is vegan so I used that and cut out little circles with a cup to use as the base. I whipped up a quick lemon filling, popped them in the oven, and boom…mini lemon meringue pies. I think they tasted better without the whipped cream but Eric enjoyed them both ways. I might try to make this in actual pie form sometime this summer. I’m sure we will be going to a cook out or barbecue at some point.
