For 4 people.
I have very little time and I am keeping it as simple as simple.
I am at work so I am emailing dh a shopping list in the next half hour.

Smoked salmon
potato salad (what bits to put in apart from the potatoes and chives?)
Posh patisserie cakes that he can pick up tomorrow.
(total lack of imagination but it has just been thrown at me)
(humous/taramasata and things to dip? Or is that just to messy)

Only time I went to Ascot I had a roast beef sandwich bought there and it was fabulous.


Something to share in case they meet friends without a picnic?

I would really appreciate it if someone would just tell me what to do.

I think the forecast is rain again, so maybe individual portions of stuff they can eat standing up rather than picky bits to set out on a rug.

Prawn cocktail from Tesco if they have it; 2 tubs, otherwise buy frozen prawns
Ciabatta (if they don't have it you can get it from Budgens tomorrow when you get the cakes) Get two.
Small cherry or plum tomatoes
Small new potatoes
Strawberries and/or raspberries
2 avocadoes
Cos lettuce
Some of those cans of wine/or cans of G and T; what about glasses? We have no plastic glasses; you can get them in Tesco.
Double Cream (to dip the strawberries in)
Smoked salmon
a lime
tin of olives (right at the far end of Tesco; just ask them; the ones stuffed with olives are yum.
Pot of basil

Is that it?
