In our previous posts on the abode Park City blog we’ve touted the greatness of the Deer Valley Outdoor Concerts

We truly hope that if you are in Park City during the summer you take the time to experience these great evening events.

July 4th is around the corner and along with all the wonderful festivities that take place here in Park City for the Independence Celebration – Deer Valley will be hosting Los Lobos, Los Lonely Boys and Alejandro Escovedo for what is sure to be a tremendous night of music.  If you’ve got your tickets and are ready to go – all you need now is a picnic basket!  Some people opt to get fancy pre-made baskets from places like Deer Valley Signatures or the Waldorf Astoria.  These fancy baskets are truly amazing and a great treat you have to try at least once.

Or maybe you’ll pack your own picnic…if so we suggest you bring – at the very least – the following list of items:
– Wine
– Plastic wine glasses
– Blankets (one or two to lay on and one to put over you if it gets cool when the sun goes down)
– Napkins
– Bottled water
– Small cheese board
– A couple yummy cheeses
– Crackers
– Some grapes or other fruit

Of course you can also pull together more elaborate foods if you’re with a group and want to make a dinner under the stars out of the whole deal…if that’s the case – here’s a great appetizer recipe that’s easy to prepare, serve and eat at an outdoor concert (this is a tried and true recipe we’ve used at this venue many times)

Here’s what you need:
– a package of toothpicks
– a package of grape tomatoes
 one container of small round mozzarella balls (often labeled bocconcini)
– fresh basil
– one small stick of pepperoni
– one jar of olives

All you have to do now is cut the tomatoes, olives and mozzarella balls in half and slice the salami.  Rinse the basil and pull the leaves off the stems.  Then assemble the pieces onto the toothpicks in any order as you see fit (sometimes making them all different is fun).  Throw the assembled sticks into a tupperware container and off you go to the concert with a healthy (veggies, protien, dairy all included)  and yummy treat to share with your neighbors out on the beautiful lawn at Deer Valley!  Enjoy!!!!
