With some hot summer days in the cards, it would be criminal not to dig out the picnic blanket and basket. Before you do, though, you might want to carefully consider your menu.

Preparing and Transporting Your Picnic Food

How you prepare and transport your picnic food is just as important as the food itself. If it is hot outside, you can guarantee that the temperature will be much higher in your car. To prevent your picnic from spoiling before you arrive at your destination, make sure to take the precautions outlined in these six blogs.

Picnics with the Kids

Kids are notoriously picky about food, let alone food that looks “funny” due to melting or wilting. It’s such a waste, and a scenario that’s best avoided altogether. When you’re having a picnic with the kids, snack type foods are usually the order of the day. These six blogs have ideas for a variety of picnic foods that are perfect for kiddie picnics.

Summer Picnic Drinks

There’s nothing like a cold, refreshing drink to round off the perfect picnic. However, drinks, just like food, can stagnate in the heat of the sun. Depending on the theme of your picnic, choosing the wrong drinks could spoil the mood, too. In these five blogs you will find recommendations for the best drinks for summer picnics.

Appetizers and Salads and More

The food in your picnic basket should match the tastes of everyone invited, of course, which is why it’s best to mix things up as much as possible. There is no reason that concerns about food spoiling should limit your menu, though. With the right recipes, you can have a rich and varied picnic that everyone will enjoy. Impress your friends and family at your next picnic with the great recipes and ideas in these six blogs.

In fact, lots of healthy options actually lend themselves perfectly to a picnic that won’t wilt under the sun.
