Tomorrow, April 23 is National Picnic Day. I haven’t been on a picnic in a long time, but these recipes make me want to plan one!
Fried chicken, pasta salads, easy desserts, all of these recipes are great for a picnic! Seriously, these are going on my recipes to try list, and I’m positive I will love these picnic recipes! Okay, the Broccoli Cheddar Pasta Salad and Avocado Sriracha Egg Salad are my own recipes, but the others. It’s finally just starting to get nicer out here, although the next few days are supposed to be cold. I’ve been thinking a lot about what we are going to do this summer, and eating outside, whether a picnic or cookout, is definitely going to be on the list a lot of days. It’s so much easier than trying to make my daughter come inside when it’s so nice out. Plus, I don’t really enjoy being stuck inside cooking in the summer either.
I’ve also been busy! I’m preparing to go to the Food and Wine Conference this summer, and am excited to finally meet my foodie friends in person. If you want to go, I have a discount for you, just use this code to save $50 off your ticket: fwc15martb . I also teamed up with World Foodie Fair to produce a limited edition Rants From My Crazy Kitchen Spice Blend that I love, and I’ll be sharing some great ways to use it soon. Finally, I’ve started as a contributor to Parade’s Community Table, and that is were you can find this delicious collection I put together!
