52 Weeks: #21 Picnic Basket & Travel Snacks

I gathered some supplies I had stored in the basement to get my picnic basket ready to go for summer picnics. I decided to include a set of plastic containers that had been given to me that I didn't need in my kitchen. I figured I could use them to pack food into without the worry of forgetting a container from my kitchen if I lose one of these no big deal.  In my kitchen I don't usually use paper good but have decided that on an outing it is more convenient because I don't like packing up dirty dished to wash at home.

Since my picnic basket was packed and ready to go I packed my husband and I a serving of Colossal Chopped Salad, cantaloupe, and homemade chocolate chip cookies to eat after a trip to the flea market. I used the Parkay Cookie Jar Recipe for the cookies.

I decide to pack some snacks and drink in the back of my van for the busy summer. I added single serving snacks that I had in my house along with a package of water and single serving drink packets.

Everything packed up in the van ready to go.

  1. Great inspiration for picnics and snacks! Way to go on pre-organizing, Jennie.

  2. Cute plastic basket!
    I have tried to keep snacks in the car too, but it is SO hot that I keep them on hand, ready to go in the house!
