And all my stuff was going to be homemade--no store bought stuff! You mean I don't have to master making cheese by July 9th?!!! (As if it would age by then !!!) Oh--I'm up way too late to make a 4:00 a.m. conf call. NIGHT.

I have had so much on my mind lately that I haven't even given this a thought. I will try to participate, but I can't guarantee anything. Thanks for the reminders here!

The challenge I'm facing are that we are going canoeing...so, the food has to fit in the cooler, AND it has to be food that travels well in a cooler because we'll be on the water for about 2-3 hours before we go ashore (if we can find a place--if not, it will be a picnic served in the canoe...). So the presentation may be somewhat of a challenge as well...it might have to stage it in the backyard and then pack it in the cooler...would that be cheating? I have a hard enough time taking pictures as it is--not sure how I'd do in the confines of a canoe on water...

This sounds like a blast. I'd love to join but I don't have a good camera and have no idea how to post them so I'll sit back and see what you all come up with hands over mouth so as not to give hints that might not be wanted or needed.

I like your idea of staging and taking pix before packing the cooler. It just makes more sense.

After your trip you can do the critique.

I so wish I could participate. I'll be in El Cajon, CA at that time visiting my MIL. It'll be too hot to picnic there, for sure.

In the winter, when we have really suffered from cabin fever, we've done an indoor picnic...complete with an inflatable palm tree, travel video from someplace warm, and tropical drinks...a blanket spread on the floor...assuming there's AC there, you could pretend you are hosting a picnic someplace where the weather isn't so unbearably hot.

Or, do it this week and post on the 9th? I assume there is Internet access in CA?

I have nothing to contribute other than I cannot wait to see what people make! I'm always interested in things that you can pack for a picnic/beach trip!
