[this was in the Badlands NP back in 2015]

I shouted out to DH that today is National Picnic Day and he yells back,
"YAY! Let's go have a picnic in the Square for dinner then"
What a smart guy.

What's going on to your picnic table?

Not warm enough for a picnic here - it's only mid-50's. Firing up the grill, though. Marinated steak tips, roasted sweet potatoes, nuked broc.

I spent part of the afternoon cleaning the grill, burners, lid and shelves from winter's grime and a year of use.

I'll be grilling country-style pork ribs and making mashed potatoes and a veggie to go along with them.

I'm going to sort of an indoor picnic tonight. A local gourmet shop teams up with a local chef each month for a dinner and wine event, hosted by a friend of mine, our local food writer and broadcaster. This month's theme is Fresh From the Farm - the chef will demonstrate and talk about making dishes with farmers market ingredients and the shop provides wine pairings. A friend and I have been going to a lot of these over the last few years and it's lots of fun

DH is having a dish of stuffed shells with my homemade lasagna sauce that I froze a few weeks ago.

No picnic here, hot, humid and rainy, but we are going Greek. Greek lamb meatballs, spanikopita rolls, rosemary lemon butter new potatoes , and tzatziki.

It was incredibly nice all weekend, and carried over into today as well. We hit 73 this afternoon. I dug all the patio furniture out and set it up, cleaned up the grill, and did a little light yard work.

Dinner was grilled tenderloin over a spinach salad. I ate it out on the deck, so I guess that counts as a picnic.

We took the grandkids to the park today wearing T-shrts! Lots of swings and sliding and running in no particular direction-- Fun.

Dinner is warmed up Tpperware surprises.

Just keep your eyes out for a bear wearing a hat and tie, and his accomplice, a small bear wearing a bow tie. They have a long record of pic-a-nic thefts.

I scored at the Dollar store today..2 big beautiful artichokes, 2 bunches of spring green onions, 3 huge English hot house cucumbers for a grand total of $5.00.

We're having the artichokes for dinner along with leftover oven barbecued pork ribs and various "Tupperware surprises".
I like that term Whiska...
