Warm, sunny weather beckons us outdoors for picnics.
For some people, though, preparing a picnic can be
daunting. Not anymore. Sandra Lee, the
internationally acclaimed lifestyle expert,
bestselling author and host of Semi-Homemade, offers
tips for an easy, fun and satisfying picnic
experience without all the work.
Here are her easy tips.
The "quick-nic" is all about
Use items that don't require cooking such as an
assortment of gourmet crackers, cheeses or fruit and nuts.
Pre-washed raw veggies and sliced fruits from your grocery
store are always refreshing on a hot day. Just put them in a
plastic container and squeeze a little lemon over the fruit
to retain freshness.
Grab it and go!
Fast-food restaurants are a great source for quick-nics with salads, low-fat yogurt and fruit and
made-to-order sandwiches. One new option is Wendy's Frescata
deli sandwiches. The four varieties are made with fresh
baked artisan bread, premium-quality turkey and ham and
topped with tasty condiments like pesto mayonnaise and honey
Semi-Homemade is based on the 70/30 rule: 70 percent
ready-made products and 30 percent creative, homemade
touches allow you to take 100 percent of the credit for a
great quick-nic experience. For example, pair a homemade side
dish with a rotisserie chicken from the grocery or takeout
from a favorite restaurant for an easy shortcut to a great
meal. Ms. Lee has created a special side dish perfect for a
quick-nic - Poppy Seed Cole Slaw a mixture of fruit and
Also, add special touches to a quick-nic by garnishing
packaged foods. Sparkling water gives a casual picnic a
sophisticated feel when spruced up with a sprig of mint or
sliced lemons and limes. Slice them before you leave the
house and throw them into a plastic bag. Or, bring
disposable containers of your favorite ice cream toppings
like sprinkles, marshmallows or other treats to dress up
frozen desserts purchased from a near-by store, restaurant
or park vendor.
And, always be ready to turn any meal into a quick-nic! Turn
your winter car-emergency kit into a summer quick-nic kit by
filling a tote bag with a blanket, Frisbee, plastic
flatware, dishes and cleanup items like paper towels and a
garbage bag. So when you hit the drive-through next, you'll
be ready to drive to the nearest park and enjoy summertime.
Consider bringing along a portable radio or iPod for a
little mood music. Or a good summer read.
According to Sandra remember to keep it fresh and keep it
