Parks provide the perfect backdrop for a family picnic, but they aren’t the only places you can have one. Try something different this time around, like an
apple orchard, picturesque college campus, lawn of a museum or beside a monument. Just be sure to call ahead to confirm that picnicking is permitted at
your desired location, and check the weather forecast before you decide on a day.
Picnics aren’t just about eating! Plan activities, too. For instance, if you’ll be in a large open space, fly kites. Or if you’re closer to the woods, help kids create a nature journal.
To avoid last-minute food snafus, choose recipes that can be prepared ahead of time or that require little to no cooking once you get to your picnic site,
like cheese and crackers. Mix and match these recipes for
a scrumptious, low-stress picnic:
Savor mealtime, knowing you have help with clean up. Cascade Complete® Pacs scrub away tough foods, no pre-rinse required. So you can spend more time around the table with loved ones.
Tip: Pre-pack individual lunches, and there’s less divvying up to do when you get to your picnic site.
Gather essentials like a blanket, flatware, cups, plates and paper towels. Next, go through recipes one-by-one to figure out what you’ll need, if anything, to serve them. Then, pack it all up. No picnic basket? No problem. A wooden crate, tote bag or backpack works just as well.
Tip: In addition to picnicking supplies, don’t forget to take sunscreen, portable stain remover and bug spray, just in case.
Spills, splatters, sticky faces and other kitchen messes have met their match. Bounty® paper towels cleans the mess with fewer sheets than the Bargain Brand (8.8X11), because it has Trap and Lock Technology™ for superior absorbency and durability. When you take on messes with Bounty, you can take on more of life.
