Summer Picnic + Giveaway!

I’m so excited to announce that I’m the Pacific Northwest ambassador for Adams Natural Peanut Butter this summer! Adams was created in 1916 by Rex Adams, a football coach in Tacoma, WA just about 30 miles south of my hometown, Seattle. Growing up, my mom would only buy Adams because the ingredients are literally peanuts and oil – can’t get more natural and pure than that!

To celebrate Adams‘ 100 years, I’ll be creating three posts in the next 100 days of summer. My first is of our picnic last weekend:

On a lovely Sunday, Husband and I packed a tote of treats and headed to Volunteer Park in Capitol Hill. On our picnic packing list: cherries, crumpets and Adams peanut butter, soppressata with cheese and crackers, and lemon-lime-infused water.
