Spending time outside during the summer is a wonderful opportunity to bond with your significant other, children, family, or friends. CareABoo blankets make the perfect picnic blankets for those warm sunny summer days. Once you’ve got your blanket and family in tow, what kind of foods should you bring? We list the five greatest picnic summertime recipes below:
#1 – Turkey and Lettuce Wraps
This meal is great for you as well as for your taste buds. Take a large lettuce leaf and use it as you would a tortilla. Stuff in the taco meat, turkey, cheese, tomatoes, onions, and other spices into the lettuce bowl for a delicious meal. This also goes great with some good classic lemonade.
#2 – PB & J
This is an old classic, but it’s great for the kids and can be customized according to their needs. Add jam and bananas or take away the jelly. So many options. Easy to make and easy to eat.
#3 – A Picnic Blanket of Fruit Baskets
This isn’t so much a recipe as a way to enjoy a healthy snack. Grab a few fun bowls and fill them with your favorite fruits. Be sure to wash them and cut them so that the food is ready to eat.
# 4 – Ice Cream
Another recipe that isn’t much of a recipe, but has the potential to be one is ice cream. You can choose a flavor and choose a condiment or sweet icing to put on top. You can create a mini sundae bar and the kids can create their own sundaes out under the shade of a big tree.
# 5 – Vegetable Wraps
A vegetable wrap can be made using a tortilla and a number of vegetables including cucumber, carrots, broccoli, and ranch. You can wrap these vegetables up in the tortilla, and then cut into small pieces for a fun snack meal.
These five recipes are great summer ideas for your picnic days.
