It doesn't take much to put together the perfect picnic:

  • Use a picnic basket. This is a handy way of keeping all your food and utensils together. Any large basket or canvas tote bag will work--even a sturdy box with handles.
  • Bring a blanket. Store it in your basket so you'll be ready to grab it and head out the door whenever the picnicking whim strikes you! 
  • Invest in a durable set of plates and extra silverware. Make it easy on yourself by always having these items ready to go in your picnic basket.

    Whilst living in Ga my husband took me to drag racing in commerce Ga. I experienced the most tastefully bar-b-q sauce ever. Can anyone help me with the recipe, it had coarsely chopped up onions, tomatoes, & other cut up seasonings in it, which was then poured over grilled pork. Talk about delish.
