Summer Picnic: Fun and Food with Friends, Outside or In

My two favorite picnic spots are on a beach blanket watching waves or in our own backyard. Of course, I also have many happy memories of large family or group picnics in public parks, as well. Rain has never been a problem, because if the weather turns soggy, we just take the paper plates and outdoor attitude, indoors. But outside or in, it’s the company and the food that make a picnic successful.
