What are your favorite picnic foods that must grace the table on every picnic?
Picnic time is coming up fast for the area I live in. Fried chicken and potato salad are my favorites. Do you have a special recipe to share in a hub about your favorite picnic foods? Also, what about food safety when on a picnic? Do you have some good tips on this?
I like deviled eggs and stuffed peppers, but not the cooked kind of stuffed peppers. My mom is one of the few people I know who make cold stuffed peppers. The stuffing consists of bread, onions, diced tomatoes, and a little salt all help together with melted butter. You can add other stuff into the mix if you like. Then clean out a green pepper (or whatever kind you like), stuff the mixture in, and cut the pepper into quarters. Serve cold.
Well, we really don't go on picnics anymore; we don't go much of anywhere.
When I was a kid, we used to do that, and two foods in particular that were "de rigeur" were Fig Newtons and hard-boiled eggs. ;-) It just wasn't a picnic without those items.
When I had kids of my own, we were on a reduced income from that on which I was raised. (Not to say my family was wealthy; we were not.)
However, my ex ruined the idea of picnics for me. We would take a picnic lunch only because we could not afford to eat out, and we would take only our "normal, every day" type lunch...and no extras. It was not a special occasion, picnic just to go somewhere and have a picnic, but more, "We're going to such-and-such a place to accomplish such-and-such a thing, but we can't afford to eat unless we bring our own food."
I stopped enjoying picnics at that point.
Our family has diminished to the point that we don't go on picnics anymore. Now Mr. B and I usually just make some tuna salad sandwiches and grab a bag of potato chips when we go on an outing. Sometimes we'll pack a container of potato salad in our cooler. Our family get togethers usually consist of backyard cookouts, and that's a different menu.
If it's a picnic, usually sandwiches and chips would be the best. If there's a grill available, then hotdogs and burgers is the standard.
Is there a way to choose all answers as the best? I wish there was, because all these answers are great. Thank you everyone.
