Outdoor Concert Menu 2

Last summer, I posted a two-part series with  tips and tricks of eating at Outdoor Concerts.  Apparently that’s been a dilemma for many of you, because they have become quite popular posts at a scrumptious lifeThe first post  focussed on the logistics and ‘equipment’ of dining al fresco.  The second offered menu ideas.   So I thought I’d offer up a few more ideas to freshen up your menus.

As I stated before, keeping it simple is the key… One appetizer, a one-dish main course and individual desserts work perfectly in the tight quarters and/or rough terrain, that is Outdoor Concert Dining.  Here are some new ideas!

Appetizers:

Gazpacho served in a glass from ascrumptiouslife.com     Gazpacho

A cold tomato based soup that can be transported in a thermos or screw top container.  Serve it in cups – no utensils needed!
