Recipes for National Picnic Day

Recipes for National Picnic Day


Did you know National Picnic Day is April 23? We love having picnics and enjoying a meal with family and friends, sitting outside soaking up the sunshine and fresh air. They can be very simple whether you prepare all the foods on your own or pick something up at the store or drive thru. Why not a specific day to celebrate having a picnic! I like to think of National Picnic Day as a day picnic season begins, because in the Pacific Northwest we may not actually get to enjoy a picnic outside on 4/23. We usually get a lot of rain in April. If the weather is stopping you from having a picnic outdoors, why not bring the picnic indoors. Set a blanket up on the floor and everyone enjoy a meal together. It won’t be the same but it’s better than nothing.
