Everything looks wonderful, Carol! You've done a great job, as usual. Applause

I know everybody was crazy about my homemade cranberry sauce last year, so I made sure to save some:

Oh.....Wow.....*cough* Rob, really....you shouldn't have. batEyes

I'm in the middle of making some things to bring along......But I'm afraid they won't be quite as . . . as . . . . well . . . they won't be Rob's cranberry sauce. grinsmiley

The fried chicken is ready....




But I might need help carrying the basket later!

Well, I didn't have time to do much, since I didn't think I'd be able to make it, so I brought along a pitcher of iced tea I made to share. Everything looks great.

See that lovely lady in your avatar, Robbie? She just fainted after a bite of your cranberry sauce. And the man behind her? He spilled some of it on his shirt, and it ate the fabric away. batEyes

Pam!! You made it!! Cheer Thanks for the tea!

Probably the strawberry ruhbarb. Unless I decide to hide behind the bandstand and eat it all myself.

LOL
Okay, well... I'd better get rid of it ... hand some out to our fellow picnickers (is that a word? lol)

Here is everyone who tasted some Wave

This little girl just saw me coming with the sauce... I didn't have the heart to make her taste it


This little boy first had a taste Cheryl & Savannah's pie, but I told him he couldn't leave the table
until he at least tasted a little bit of the cranberry sauce.... I feel bad :(


This little boy was about to enter the potato sack race, but I told him Rob's cranberry sauce might give him a little energy. After he tasted it, he said, "If THIS is what energy tastes like, I don't want any of it" hahaha...


This girl accidentally got a big spoonful of the sauce in her mouth... ooops!


I had given this little girl a taste a little while back and I noticed she kept picking at her mouth.
I asked her what was wrong. She said, "I'm trying to take the sauce out of my mouth" :( lol


Well, good news Rob! You probably won't have to store this for the next event... looks like it's about 1/2 way gone! Thumbsup lol

OK here is my contribution! I was up all night making some goodies. Here is the lemon meringue pie I worked on last night. I used to make this often when I single and living at home & the family loved it. I've only made it a few times since I've been married but it is delicious.


And, probably not a picnic food but here is a batch of fried mushrooms I whipped up!

Wonderful picnic Carol!! You are the BEST!!! Thumbsup

Does anyone have a glass of ice water? Ahem, Rob's avatar is making me a little...warm. batEyes


Great pictures everyone!! Gosh, I want to GO to that bridge Savannah!!! Applause

In my area, it's a PERFECT day for a picnic---75 and gorgeous!! A nice little breeze too.

Anyone for some kite flying?



Or how about an old fashioned baseball game?




And I'm entering my world strawberry jam against Caroline and Mrs. Oleson. Think I'll win? batEyes
I don't know...not sure I stand a chance again that Mrs. Foster!!





Hope there's enough apple pie for everyone!
