Would you pick a picnic?

When I think picnic, I think Donald Duck. My favourite cartoon as a kid saw the hot-headed Disney character doing his best to thwart the army of ants trying to steal his food.

When it comes to eating outdoors, preparation is key. It’s satisfying as you unfurl your picnic rug under a shady tree and lay out your spread, onlookers unaware of the amount of hours you spent chopping and packing bits into boxes beforehand.

No wonder Donald was annoyed when he saw all his hard work disappearing into the ant hill.
