Petite Picnic

We recently discovered a hydroponic U-Pick farm right near our house.  Picking our own veggies, and a basket full of strawberries so we can make a big salad for dinner and strawberries with whipped cream for dessert is quickly becoming our Spring time tradition!  Last week we asked some friends to come with us and we made a little (literally!) picnic to enjoy after all that picking.
We had mini club sandwiches, "watermelon" slices, and tiny smores.
We made the "watermelon" by cutting some limes in half, scooping out the fruit (that was a lot harder than it sounds), filling it with Jello made the jigglers way, and sliced once the jello is set.
I picked up a skinny baguette from the bakery to cut for the sandwiches.  Topped it with turkey, cheese, a grape tomato, and a toothpick.

The smores were my favorite! Stack mini marshmallows on top of a squares of Golden Gram cereal, toast just a few seconds, smoosh a mini chocolate chip in the top and toast until barely brown, top with another Golden Gram.
