Simple Spring Bucket List for Foodies |

Simple Spring Bucket List for Foodies

When a new season begins, bucket lists of activities to do to make the most of the season tend to catch our eye. Rather than share a long list, we thought we would create something simple that has something specific in mind – food! New seasons tend to want to make us try new foods, especially as we welcome back many fruits and vegetables. From picking berries and planting a garden to making a delicious sweet treat many of us know and love, below we’re sharing six foodie things for you to tackle throughout the spring with your family and friends! 

Pick Berries

Have you ever picked your own berries? Blueberries and strawberries are in-season in the spring, and it’s so much fun to fill bushels with your own fruit. Look for a u-pick farm in your area, and choose a time to visit! Many farms also have plenty of other activities to enjoy, so make a day of it. After you pick your own fruit, think about creating a fun recipe at home. We can confirm these blueberry muffins and these strawberry recipes are delicious!

Pack a Picnic

When was the last time you packed a picnic to enjoy while out and about? Think about making sandwiches at home, picking up subs from the grocery store, or ordering takeout (pizza does the trick!). Then visit a park or beach and dine on the grass, sand, or even from the comfort of your car. A change of scenery can make a meal feel like a completely different experience! 

Dine Al Fresco

A spring sight we love to see is diners enjoying breakfast, lunch, and dinner outside! If you typically opt to eat inside, visit a restaurant you frequent or a new spot you’ve yet to try and mix up your routine by sitting outside. This is especially nice to do when there’s a warm night in the forecast!

Make S’mores

As a pre-summer celebration treat, plan to make s’mores! The classic way to make them is over a campfire, but you can also make them on a grill or even bake them in the oven. The only ingredients you need are graham crackers, marshmallows, and chocolate bars.

Plant a Garden

There’s still plenty of time to plant a garden, and the spring is the best time to get your seeds in the ground or in pots. Consider planting flowers, starting a vegetable garden, or growing herbs inside. The fun thing about growing fruits, vegetables, and herbs is you can eat what you grow throughout the spring and summer and sometimes even the fall and winter.

Try a New Restaurant

It’s a new season, so why not try a new or new-to-you restaurant? The pandemic was hard on restaurants, and they will welcome your support! Plus, you might find a new dish you love or a restaurant you will frequent for weeks, months, and even years to come.
