Recipe for a Saturday Picnic

If the weather permits, I just think a picnic sounds so great. I have been planning the menu in my mind for days. Throw in a blanket, a frisbee, the boys' rip-stiks, some books and we have the makings of a perfect afternoon.

Recipe for a Picnic
Ingredients:
1 Picnic Basket
1 Container of Fruity Chicken Salad*
1 Bag of Whole Wheat Bagel Chips
4 Bottles of Water
4 Bottles of Orange Crush
4 Bags of Mixed Fruit
1 bag of our favorite chips
Blanket
Wet Wipes

Directions: Chunk it all into the picnic basket, throw the kids into the car and head to one of our favorite picnic spots!

* Fruity Chicken Salad
One rotisserie chicken
mayonnaise
1 bunch red seedless grapes
3 handfuls pecan halves, chopped into smaller pieces
2 hearts of celery, chopped
salt and pepper to taste
Directions: Take the rotisserie chicken and remove the skin, then pull the meat off in bite-size pieces. Add the mayonnaise to taste and celery. Add the grape halves and pecan pieces, mix and add salt & pepper to taste. We love to eat this with wheat bagel chips.

I'm not sure which sounds better, the salad or just getting away for a picnic!
