Picnic Recipies?

9 posts in this topic

So my family is pretty much an outdoors family and we are always on the go on the weekend.  Usually Kayaking, biking, etc... We always out all day, normal somewhere pretty remote. I always struggle with making something packable - especially side dishes... So I was hoping to collect some new recipies/idea's for our picnics.  Anything that can be small is great for a bike ride, as we have to tote it along, kayaking or when we ride ATV's I have alot more room. Someplaces even access to a grill - so any ideas you might have would be excellent, I am getting tired of toting chips... :)

When we were children, mother sometimes had 8 to 10 kids along.  We ate a lot of Mac/cheese, tuna sandwiches and PB&J.  But of course, we also had an ice chest.

Anything with mayo, I will only do when we have the Ice Chest, the bike rides are the hardest as no ice chest, and usually we are all starving.  We do granola bars, and PBJ alot on those trips, but I would love to change it up a little. :)

Crusty bread, hard cheeses that don't need refrigeration, cured meats, beans, sun-dried tomato, dehydrated fruit, snapea crisps or similar- All of these can be eaten as snacks or just thrown into wraps ahead of time with spring greens- Weight wise they don't bog down your pack, they provide energy- Pre-packaged Justin's nut butters for something sweet-

Whole baked sweet potatoes. Grandma  frequently gave us kids cold sweet potatoes that she had baked a day or two previous when we wanted a snack. Peel and eat no mess.

LOL! I sometimes brought Lunchables  or similar pre-packaged foods for my kids when we did picnics. Easy, convenient and they enjoyed it - that was my thinking at the time. But though I also brought fruit, etc., YDD thinks it was "too unhealthy." She would never do the same w/ her kids. :)
