If you love outdoor entertaining, you need to add these recipes for perfect picnic foods to your Pinterest boards asap!
I have always loved outdoor entertaining and dining alfresco. But now that I'm back in my hometown in Southern California, we can picnic almost any time of the year. And I've been picnicing a lot with my little boys since they have different pick up times from school. On Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, my oldest little boy gets out of school 30 minutes before my middle son. And on Tuesday and Fridays, it's the reverse. Since there are lots of beautiful, grassy areas around the campus, I like to pack a picnic so we can enjoy some tasty snacks while we wait for the second pickup.
Of course, there are plenty of other times to enjoy a picnic. I love to pack a picnic for zoo trips, or to go to the beach. In any case, I want to make and pack delicious recipes, so I've rounded up over 20 perfect picnic foods for you to pack up too.
