Summer with Heinen's

In partnership with Heinen's Grocery Store, Mr. H and I got to pack a picnic dinner to take up to the Cleveland Summer Cinema showing of La La Land in Old Brooklyn last week. It was also a good excuse to use the checkered tablecloth my mom made for my grandma 30+ years ago. It was handed down to me last summer, and I have so many memories of family dinners in the summer at the picnic table using this cloth.
Every good picnic includes a cheese board! Check ours out, including some fabulous cheeses from Heinen's and the gorgeous personalized board that Crystal got us as a wedding gift. Heinen's has one of the best cheese selections in Northeast Ohio. We added in some marcona almonds, baguette, honey, jam, and a smoked pork rillettes that we got from Saucisson.
The prepared foods sections of Heinen's always have some great grab-and-go items. We choose to stick to the cold foods, since we'd be dining al fresco. Our selections included Broccoli Salad, Curry Chicken Salad (one of my long-time favorites of theirs), Roasted Squash and Red Peppers, and Cajun Crab Dip.

Not pictured...a delightful bottle of dry rose! Shhhh.....

We settled in for the movie, and had a great time taking in a flick under the stars. This Tuesday's movie at Loew Park is Ratatouille and next week is Sing.
It was a perfect evening, and one that we'll be replicating this summer. Check out #SummerwithHeinens on social media to see what others are up to, and pack your own picnic. We're always on the hunt for a good park to picnic in. What's your favorite local spot?
