Time to pack for a picnic....what would you take? For us, picnics have always been about family time and making memories. My Dad was a struggling photographer back in the 50s-60s. Often we would all jump in the car for a day out while he was shooting a job. We didn't stop at a drive through for lunch or dinner, we just snacked on what was in our packed Coca Cola Cooler. Dad always kept this worn out comforter in the trunk for us to sit on or as a tablecloth.
We usually ate bologna or liverwurst sandwiches wrapped in wax paper (yuck!), with potato chips, fruit, and cookies. Mom always had a stash of cookies in the freezer ready to take on a drive.
Those were the days! These days we usually pack fresh fruit with some granola on the side for snacking. That is kind of our to go - fruit...watermelon especially. Or apples, plums, strawberries and raspberries. It's all good. Just remember to create memories.
