Making memories with 12 Summer Picnic Recipes you’ll want to try for your next alfresco meal.



Summer Picnic

Hamburgers, hot dogs and salads galore,
Swinging on tree limbs until you are sore,
Bicycles, pickles, french fries and pie,
A nap on a blanket for the young and less spry.
Swim in the river, rowboat on the lake,
Fireworks at sundown, if you’re still awake.
Mosquitos in full flight send us astray,
Back home to bed at the end of the day.

Patricia McAdams
