Tasty recipes for family picnics

Picnics can be as simple or as elaborate as you want. Whether you use a basket filled with wine glasses, china plates and silverware, or plastic ware, paper plates and cups, your efforts will be rewarded with praises. Appetites are always bigger when you are out in the fresh air, eating at a table, or sitting on a blanket under a shade tree. Rather than purchasing everything from the deli, put some imagination into your food preparation. Italian or Pumpernickel bread is much more of a treat than squishable white bread.

Keep cold dishes cold by wrapping them in aluminum foil, then pack them in ice. Hot dishes will stay hot wrapped in foil, then in newspapers. Tape container lids to prevent spills.

Make a list of everything you need to take, from a can opener to hand cleaner, plus the food.

Before leaving, check your list again. Leaving a dish home in the refrigerator can bring on a headache.

A few essentials to have on the list: insect repellent, sun screen, first aid kit, drinking water, paring knife, can opener, paper towels, one large bag for burnable trash and one for cans, etc. Frisbee, football or a softball and bat.
