Hello, hi, SPRING – you beautiful, wonderful thing!
True to Colorado form, this season is blowing in like a lion. And by that, I mean we had 40mph winds yesterday. Just some casual hurricane force gusts – no biggie. 😂 But I am NOT complaining. Because these winds are accompanied with 70 degrees and sunshine.
Bring. On. The. Spring. And all of my favorite things. Camping and grilling out and playing with Scout in the backyard. Vibrant, veggie-centric meals like these chickpea naan wraps. And PICNICS. My all-time favorite date. I'll take fresh air and a bottle of wine over a fancy restaurant dinner any day. ☀
I have one rule when it comes to picnics: keep it simple. I am not bringing an entire charcuterie board to this situation. I am not bringing anything that requires spreading, assembling, or cleanup. It's all about easy, handheld, and delicious. For example... these WRAPS. Fresh, colorful chickpea wraps stuffed with all of my favorite textures and flavors, mediterranean chickpea naan wraps, amazing!
The best part? I'm 100% certain (after plenty of hands-on research) that these wraps pair perfectly with chilled rosé and warm spring days. 😘 Are you feeling this as much as I am? That's what I thought.
SO first things first, we get the wine chilling. We opted for Decoy's lovely dry rosé because I knew it would pair perfectly with our light picnic meal. Pick up everything you need for these chickpea wraps at the grocery + your favorite fruits and other snacks. Then, on picnic day, we quickly cook the chickpeas. Next, we slather hummus on a piece of naan, pour in the chickpeas and then load up the veggies – tomatoes, cucumber, romaine, and red onion. Finally, we gently fold it in half and wrap it snugly in the parchment. Pack everything into a little cooler and hit the road.
That's exactly the process we followed to get ready for our date last weekend. And then we hit a dead end. I had my heart set on having a picnic by a beautiful reservoir just outside of Woodland Park. But I didn't even think about checking to see if it was open for the season yet. Total amateur move. Total bummer. So here we are, sitting in front of a "Do Not Enter" gate. The car is loaded up with picnic essentials, Scout is anticipating a fun outing, and we're ready to unwind with that perfectly chilled bottle of Decoy rosé. I'm not one to take no for an answer – so we changed plans and found the next best things. (Luckily we had a few go-to spots that we could fall back on.)
We threw down the blanket, laid out our meal, and opened up the wine... and BOOM. An average weekday picnic was immediately elevated – just like that, we were transported to Sonoma. See? Picnics are THE BEST.
Head for your favorite backroad. Your nearest city park. A quiet lake or pond or stream. Or your backyard. With your bae or your bestie or your mom or your pup! Just get out there and soak up the sunshine the first chance you get. Crack that bottle of Decoy Rosé and let spring into your beautiful soul. 💛💛💛 PS – We've found this wine at our local Costco and a few other stores.
