Snacks + Playground + Kiddos= Fun Picnic

Well, shoot, I've been trying to write ya something all morning, but mostly what's on my mind today is a picnic, not glass or being middle aged or soul-searching or rambling a la George Carlin style.

  • The kiddos and a bunch of their friends are going to have a picnic today. Why do I hear Yogi Bear's voice every time I say picnic? It always comes out as "a pic-a-nic, yum!"

The grownups are having sandwiches, the kids are having Lunchables, and the birds and squirrels will probably be having a buffet after we leave the park!

So, tell me? Here are a couple of those picnic questions good for debate. What's your preference?

  • mustard or mayonnaise or Sweet Vidalia Onion salad dressing for your sandwich?
  • Doritos or Ruffles or Cheetos?
  • Kool Aid or water or lemonaid or Cokes (that's southern speak for soda, pop, or soda pop)?
  • Yellow Potato Salad (don't know what you call the kind with mustard) or German potato salad (how can ya go wrong with vinegar/sugar/bacon??)?
  • arrive on time or fashionably late?
Oops, I better scoot, or I won't even be fashionably late, just plain old L.A.T.E.!!

Hmmm, Granddaddy or maybe Bubby? Bub usually jabbers more, though...If not the Granddaddy, then Grandma or the Soupie using Bubby or Granddaddy's 'puter? We did have fun! Stayed over there at the park for about two and a half hours :)

Heehee, Mallory, I'm with ya on the Diet Coke and Ruffles, but I just can't do mustard.

Okay, now, for the You'll Never Guess Who. Hmmmmm, Dr. Pepper? If this were Soupie, she'd say Mt. Dew. Aunt Carol might say Dr. Pepper, but I don't know about the Cheetos. Don't think it's Tasha or Bubby, but could be, what with the Dr. P. Hmmmm, some more. Shannon 'Rie? Barb or Friedel? or maybe a Decker? Hard to tell. C'mon, don't keep me in suspense. . .

Sounds like fun. A great idea for the summer months. My boys would love that and we have plenty of garden and trees for the perfect picnic.

Dayum - I missed the picnic! Hope you all had fun.
Being a poor deprived Kiwi (uninformed & uninitiated) & having no idea what half the foods you listed are I'll have to go with:
1. Aioli Dressing
2. Eta Tzakziti Gourmet Chips.
3. Gin & Tonic
4. Sweet Potato Salad (with crispy bacon)
5. Fashionably late - always! Kids make sure of that ;o)

Mich, sounds like you have the perfect place for picnics! You'll have to share when you do, that way then I can enjoy a taste of summer when it's cold up here :)

Deb, woman! Sounds like a gourmet picnic! Yum! What's this Sweet Potato Salad? Made with sweet potatoes, or a sweet tasting potato salad? Either way, it's making me hungry and this is just breakfast time...
