Best Picnic Food Recipes

It is almost that time of year where the weather is perfect for sitting outside and enjoying a simple packed meal. What is it about eating outside that makes it feel so much more fun? I’m not sure but it is way more fun then sitting at the dinner table! That is for sure!

Does your family like to have picnics? Any chance we get we try to make it a picnic! Breakfast, lunch, or dinner, it doesn’t matter, we love to make it a picnic. The location doesn’t need to be anything special. Most of the time we end up on our back patio or at a local park. Not super fancy but super fun!

Sometimes a simple sandwich will do but most of the time our favorite picnic food is a bagel with cream cheese. Simple and easy to pack and transport are the qualifying factors when packing our picnic food.

Other times we like to dress it up a bit but still keep it simple. I have pulled together some really great ideas to pack into your next picnic.
