Now that summer is in full force ( rumor is kids and college students alike are out for SUMMER! ), it’s time to start hosting parties on the lawn at sunset; aka the most romantic picnic ever. When I think about picnic style foods; my mind immediately goes to Paris, maybe it’s because there are so many gorgeous places to sit and enjoy a baguette and a hunk of cheese or maybe it’s the romanticism. Who knows. Nonetheless this french style sandwich is a must make for your picnic style parties.
