Picnic Food doesn’t that just sound good! And it is! Everyone loves to try a new appetizer or dessert. Often times the apps are more fun than the main meal. So here are some great recipes & picnic ideas from a few of our favorite sites that just may come in handy for 4th of July picnics.
Picnic Food | Friday’s Fun Read
So the FoodNetwork.com site is one of my go to’s when it comes to finding a recipe. In addition, I really enjoy their programming. The Best Summer Appetizers, www.foodnetwork.com rounds up 80 apps. With everything from the classics like guac & chips or deviled eggs to oysters, shrimp, beef, bite-sized bruschetta, lettuce wraps & sliders.
Presentation tip, visit our Home Design Shop for Channel Round Placemats sold as a set of 4, perfect to round out your picnic centerpiece & tabletop decor.
Pizza – Picnic Food
Pizza for picnic food, who thought? But it actually makes sense. Because making get-togethers as simple as possible is a good idea. Since it’s about the experience and food plays a big part, don’t stress. If you are tight on time or talent, build your own flatbread pizza!
Dessert – Picnic Food
And what picnic is complete without a fun dessert! Seven Flag-Shaped Foods to Make for the Fourth of July, marthastewart.com. I really appreciate the creativity & thoughtfullness found on MarthaStewart.com as they blend recipes with the experience of the event. Like these Flag-shaped desserts. And you will find simple ideas to more elaborate ones, but all well within reach.
Ok, full disclosure, I am an Italian Ice fanatic! I grew up on Italian Ice and I just love it! So, of course, this was my favorite. Because just thinking about planning a picnic makes me feel like a kid! But make sure to explore all the innovative ideas.
Enjoy a summertime picnic this year, complete with all the fun that goes along with it!
So thanks for stopping by this week, we hope you’ve left inspired ~ Nancy
