Making Picnic Plans :-)

moonwolf_gwJune 25, 2013

Hi everyone,

So, my friends and I are finally going to have our picnic sometime this month. The friend and her husband who are hosting us (well, where we'll be meeting at), is supposed to call me in a few days to work out the schedule of things to do. The menu is all planned and I've even started a shopping list for the things we'll need lol.

I will keep everyone posted about the picnic plans. I have to call the one friend who is joining us tonight. Just to refresh your memories, here is the menu I have written down.

Gram's Lemonade
Alabama BBQ Ribs
Twice Baked Potatoes
Veggies & Dip
Buffalo Chicken Dip & Tortilla Chips (the veggies can be dipped in this too I figured lol)
Peanut Butter & Chocolate Rice Krispie Bars

We may make some modifications or additions to the menu. The sauce for the ribs sounds a little sweet, so I may add some of the wing sauce for the buffalo chicken dip for a little spice, but not too much since I and another friend don't like overly spicy foods. I cannot wait until my friends and I get together! Rain or shine, it'll be a very fun day :-).

All recipes have now been written down. I might have to take some cards with me in case anyone wants the recipes of the menu items.

dcarch, That won't be a problem lol. If it's a warm day, I think 3 gallons of the lemonade will go fast ;-).

I agree, you'll want LOTS of your Gram's lemonade. Everything sounds delicious and I know you've been looking forward to this.

I hope the weather is perfect for you, have a wonderful time!

Thank you, Annie!

I get to start making more official plans tomorrow when my friend (who, along with her husband, are hosting us), calls me and we figure out a schedule for the big day :-). I'll let everyone know how tomorrow goes!

Just talked to the friend who is hosting us. Our plans are more concrete, but, still no official date for the picnic. That is, until she figures out what days she has to work. Keeping my fingers crossed!

Sounds like the picnic will be on the cement sidewalk. LOL!

I'll try and remember to take pictures, for sure! LOL dcarch, I'm thankful our friend who is hosting us lives out in the country, but I think our picnic may be moved to the end of the month. Some plans came up for my one friend and she may not be able to make it.

Well, it looks like the picnic is to be rescheduled yet again. This time for next month. I do have my 5 year class reunion coming up, and we'll be bringing covered dishes for that event. Hmm, I think I'll make a dessert or two to share, and make Gram's Lemonade as well.
