Faking a Fabulous Picnic

I adore a picnic.  It's my children's favorite thing to do too.  Sometimes we'll just pack up whatever we've planned on eating for dinner and take it outside.  Something about lounging about on the grass and eating is lovely.  It's part of what inspired me to keep a picnic bag in the basement with a blanket, thermos, and everything else we may need for a picnic {like a wine opener}

How about you?  Do you picnic?  Picnics are a great way to have a family dinner that doesn't feel too fancy.  Also a great way to spend a t-ball/baseball/kite flying afternoon.

Pressed sandwiches are one of my favorite picnic foods.  Martha Stewart has buckets of sandwich ideas.  I made the Tuna Nicoise Sandwich with fresh fruit and a Honeydew Aqua Fresca {hot tip - Honeydew Aqua Fresca is amazing with rum!}

These items are from the Martha Stewart Collection, exclusively at Macy's and part of the 'American Icons'
