Picnic Time!

Here in the US, we are enjoying a long holiday weekend. Our Independence Day happens to fall on Monday this year, so we are taking three days to celebrate. The 4th of July has always been a day for picnics and/or bar-be-cues because the weather is usually warm and most businesses close for the holiday.

What could be more perfect than a summer picnic?

So based on a totally unscientific survey of my friends and family, here are the top 5 foods that will be served this weekend at neighborhood bar-be-cues or picnics:

  1. Hamburgers (I happen to like them juicy with ketchup, mustard, and lettuce.)
  2. Hot dogs (These tend to give me indigestion so I generally avoid them.)
  3. Watermelon (Melons don't 'agree' with me, but I do LOVE watermelon!)
  4. Ice Cream (GIVE ME A SCOOP! Any flavor will do.)
  5. Potato salad (Make mine with hard boiled eggs, please!)
What about you? Are you having a picnic or bar-be-cue this weekend or in the near future?

What are your favorite foods to eat at a picnic?
