Romantic Picnic For Two (Plus A Shopping List)

What I’m serving up tomorrow night: a coffee-table picnic featuring three of our all-time favorites.

Lemony Engagement Chicken

Asparagus, Bacon & New Potato Salad

Unscrewupable Apple Pie

(And of course prosecco.)

If you’d like to do the same, I’ve compiled a handy shopping list for you (serves 2-4):

– 1 whole chicken, preferably free-range and organic

– 4-8 prosciutto slices (depending on how much you like)

– 2 lemons (1 for the chicken, one for the salad)

– Fresh garlic

– 1 bunch parsley or thyme

– 1 bag small new potatoes (or you can quarter larger ones)

– 1 bunch asparagus, preferably skinny

– 8-10 slices thick-cut, excellent-quality bacon

– 2 deep-dish frozen pie crusts (thawed)

– 5-7 mixed apples

– Sugar (1/2 cup white, 1/2 cup brown)

– 1 tsp cinnamon

– 3 tbsp flour

– Butter (you’ll need about a cup and a little extra; 1 cup for the chicken, and another couple of tsp for the pie)

– Olive oil

– Salt & pepper
