Just about everyone loves a picnic and it’s easy to see why. These informal outdoor celebrations can be held just about anywhere, and for just about any reason (or no reason at all!). We all love picnics because they give us a chance to relax and be with the people we care about, sharing and creating memories over a delicious meal. And speaking of meals, the very best thing about picnics is the food! Whether it’s on a beach in the warm summer sun or on a leaf-carpeted lawn in the crisp autumn air, food just tastes better when you eat it outside! Go ahead…pick your day and place, and let’s plan the perfect picnic!
So, just what is the perfect picnic anyway? The answer is that it can be whatever you want it to be. From gourmet deli foods to a bucket of chicken, from botanical gardens to your own back yard, the perfect picnic is whatever you can imagine. The secret to ensuring your picnic is as perfect as you envisioned, is not to let your plans balloon into something more complicated than you originally intended. The keys to successfully carrying out your plan are to keep it simple, be organized and be prepared.
Try this super-easy and delicious menu for your next picnic. The chicken tastes good hot or cold, and since there is no mayo in the potato salad, you don’t have to be as concerned about food spoilage. In addition, the chocolate chip orange cake has no frosting so it’s easy to pack and won’t make a sticky mess. Add some raw veggies like carrots, celery, and cherry tomatoes with ranch dip, and you have the perfect menu for your picnic!
Now that you know how easy it is to plan the perfect picnic, we hope you decide to have one with your favorite people soon! Remember to keep it simple, be organized and be prepared, but most of all remember to have fun!
