So you two had the same picnic basket of food, but on different coasts?

It's always those messy, or labor intensive dishes that people think are simple.

I love picnics, and use almost any excuse to stage one...

some of my favorite things to pack include:

Muffuletta
Country Pate
Jambon Persille
Fried Chicken / Cold Roast Chicken
Goanese Roast Pork

depending upon the main course, favorite sides include potato salad; cole slaw; maque choux, cucumber salad; deviled eggs, assorted crudites,

"essentials" that almost always make the trip: mustard, cornichons, baguettes, cheese, fresh fruit in season.

for dessert we like: pie (I have a picnic basket that has a special compartment to hold a large Pyrex pie plate ), brownies, lemon coconut squares, coconut pound cake, other cookies.

and of course a couple of well chilled bottles of white or rose wine.

Hi Chef June,
Here you go:

Peach Upside-Down Cake
Serves 12

9 tablespoons butter, softened
1 tablespoon brown sugar
4 fresh peaches, pitted, skinned, and sliced
3/4 cup white sugar
3 eggs, whites and yolks separated
3/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups finely ground graham cracker crumbs
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt

1) Preheat oven to 375˚F.

2) Place 1 tablespoon of the butter in a 9-inch round cake pan and place pan in oven. Once the butter has melted, pull pan from the oven, and stir the brown sugar into the melted butter. Spread to coat the bottom of the pan evenly. Arrange the peach slices in the pan and set aside.

3) Cream the remaining 8 tablespoons of butter with the white sugar. Beat in the egg yolks, then the milk and the vanilla extract.

4) In a small bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form.

5) In a separate bowl, stir the graham cracker crumbs, baking powder, and salt together. Beat the graham cracker mixture into the egg yolk-butter mixture. Gently fold the beaten egg whites into the batter. Pour the batter into the prepared pan, over the peaches.

6) Bake cake for 40 minutes. Remove cake from oven and immediately invert the cake upside-down onto a large plate. Because this cake is so moist, it should be stored in the refrigerator.
