Spring is in full swing, especially here in Los Angeles. Before summer starts and BBQ season officially begins, we over here at Labor 411 can appreciate the art of lounging around outdoors on a warm sunny day with good company and a cooler full of our favorite foods. Personally, my favorite Spring activities are the Sunday backyard brunch, and the sunny picnic at the park.
Maybe it’s that Cali sun, or that mild spring weather – either way, eating outdoors is a Californian tradition. I have found that the perfect midday outdoor meal stays true to a few practices: picnic food is generally prepared early (so it can be packed away easily), easy to serve, and most importantly, ready to eat! Because there is a ton of excellent food out there which is union made, I figured why not take the time create my own version of a union picnic?
