April 23rd is National Picnic Day and kicks off
the season to pack a basket,
grab a blanket or quilt and head outdoors!
In celebration of National Picnic Day,
I’m sharing some picnic love and
giving away my favorite picnic accessory. . .
from Pottery Barn!
I recycled some jars that fit the caddy for the convenience and ease of toting flatware, food, napkins or flowers. . .
The Classico pasta sauce jars are taller than Ball pint jars and the Ball jar lids also fit the pasta jars for transporting food, salads, or drinks.
Classico recently changed the neck opening and lid on the jar so it’s narrower and the ball jar lids no longer fit, but you can still find some of the older designed jars on some store shelves or you can use Ball 1 1/2 pint jars.
In addition to the galvanized caddy,
I’m also including a cookbook in the giveaway,
with 125 recipes for 29 seasonal menus. . .
Picnic by DeeDee Stovel:
Picnics are fun, casual, and somehow the food just tastes better in a beautiful outdoor setting.
In PICNIC, DeeDee Stovel offers 29 picnic event ideas with more than 125 recipes – packable repasts from an informal Berry Picking Picnic to an elegant Music Festival Picnic. Although PICNIC includes all of the traditional fare, the recipes for the soups, entrées, salads, and desserts are all a cut above the ordinary.
And when lazy summer days turn chilly, enjoy a Sports Booster Picnic, a Fall Foliage in New England Picnic, and an Après-Ski Picnic. Wine and beer selections accompany each menu. Plus picnic lore, packing to go, the perfect picnic basket, rainy day alternatives, and much more. It’s an all-American feast!
