I barbecued chicken legs in the oven. The next day I smoked them and they were delicious. Good for a picnic?

Living on the West coast of beautiful Lake Michigan just shouts PiCnIc!!!!!!! We have so many white sandy beaches topped by high sand dunes. There are endless places to have lay out a pretty red and white checked table cloth and top it with my grandma's homemade potato salad, cold fried chicken, fresh fruit salad, homemade chocolate cake baked with marshmallows and sugar and cinnamon on top. My Grandma used to mix orange juice and grape juice together and it was so refreshing on a hot day. If we had a fire we'd cook farmer's market bi-colored sweet corn and top it with zippy butter.(melted butter mixed with yellow mustard and a touch of horseradish) After a while me might need to snack on something like homemade carmel corn and lemonade. If we stay until dark there of course would be s'mores.

I always get asked to make my creamy potato salad ( and get asked for the recipe and i can't give it to them cause i never measure any thing for it). I also like to make Cream cheese brownies,Pretzel Fluff and some kind of veggie tray. We go camping alot so i try to make different stuff when we camp.

I love to take the boys to the park for a picnic, we first walk the perimeter a couple of times so we get our exercise in.. lol then we eat! typically we see what we have in leftovers! Choosing two leftover meats, two sides and veggies, and desserts we pack up and head out..! We all get to eat something we like and it doesn't cost a thing! Any leftover chicken, meatloaf, roast, etc.. any garden, pasta, potato salad, leftover cupcakes, sweet pies, cookies are packed up and enjoyed all over again!

Paula, I am glad to know that I am not the only person who makes Easter Baskets for their adult children and mail them across the United States. My Daughter lives in Long Beach, CA and I not only sent her a basket but her husband and my granddaughter Reese. We also buy special Russel Stover Bunnies for each child too. My husband has the list in his phone... Sara .. Cookies 'n Crème.... Sidney and Stephen.. Peanut Butter Etc. It one of my favorite things to do for my kids.. no matter how old they get. And passing it along to my Grandchildren. It's even more special to me knowing we share a family tradition. Blessings and Happy Easter!!
