Next GCC - Summer Fare

I know we are still posting for this GCC but I wanted to get this out. How about a summer challenge? I'm thinking:

Summer Picnic
Everything would be food you make in advance to take on a picnic, nothing "cooked on site."

OR

Summer Cookout
A back yard cookout. The traditional "summer grilling", not smoking, but grilling (if that makes sense).

Any thoughts?

Ummm--what to do with all that garden produce? I don't take it to a picnic--I have to figure out what to do with it all! Wish I had a picnic to which to take it!

Dave, I think that is a great idea. With all the new ideas out there for twists on classic picnic fare I think that would be great.

But I think we may need to adjust the courses. Say snack, main, 1 - 2 sides, dessert and beverage. But that's just an idea to get conversation going.

I would like to follow your thoughts on a picnic.

I am always looking for new ideas on "road food". We like to take food with us when we travel or pick it up along the way but, I get into a rut about what to make and take.

I'm in--I have my menu figured out. And, I will be able to harvest everything except the meat.........oh, I'm so in.

Incentive to get off the farm and pick up a card or two for my digital camera.

Does it count as a picnic if we take it on a canoe trip?

I sat the last one out on account of too much on my plate and it wasn't dinner. This time, I am sitting out again...I have my big race this month and I did something stupid yesterday and am recovering from that. I'm fine, just stupid!!!
