Less Labor Day Picnic

We’re enjoying a lakeside picnic over the holiday weekend~ I’m testing the theory that everything tastes better out of a jar~ it certainly is more fun :-) A layered salad made in advance~ a minimum of 8 hours or up to 24~ chilling for the flavors to meld. You can enjoy the fruits of your labor later ~ since…

Fantasy Island Getaway

 We celebrated our 27th wedding anniversary August 18th~ No grand celebration or jetting away to an exotic locale or favorite destination for the last week of summer~ just enjoying a quiet weekend after a few busy weeks.      Although I  did find myself fantasizing about a tropical island getaway. . . Turks and Caicos, Grand Cayman, St. Maarten. . .…

A Jeep Picnic

A little ride in my husband’s new/old restored 1985 Jeep Scrambler to enjoy a picnic~ With the original tailgate color for comparison. . . Blackberries were on the menu after a visit to the farmers market and I found this idea in Southern Living~ Blackberry Skewers:  basil leaves,  fresh small mozzarella cheese balls, and fresh blackberries~ My husband…

A Lakeside Picnic

Tailgating with Pumpkins

He kept the original tailgate color for comparison~ Of course, my response that…

Pontoon Picnic

P is for Pontoon Picnic. . . I’m joining Alphabe-Thursday ~ this week’s letter assignment is the letter P.  Our picnic paraphernalia was purchased at Kohl’s including the placemats, napkins & napkin Rings, fish bowls & glasses.  This place setting is not our normal boating picnic fare~ for practical purposes we typically use plastic :-)   To drink~ Pellegrino. . .  This Pontoon Picnic wouldn’t…
