The Picnic Game


Did you know that June 18th was International Picnic Day? Louise from Months of Edible Celebrations is hosting the Picnic Game which is based on a children's game where you say "I'm going on a picnic and I'm bringing A___" The next person recites the first line and adds in what they are going to bring for B and so on until you reach the end of the alphabet. For this virtual picnic, Louise asked bloggers to pick a letter and post their picnic contribution on their blog. I chose the letter M so I'm bringing Mini Meringue Kisses to the picnic!

I'm going on a picnic and I'm bringing....

A - Artichokes



B - Baked Beans


C - Cauliflower Tabbouleh

D - Dunkin' Donuts with maple syrup & honey frosting



E - Eggplant Casserole











F - Frosty Summer Salad with Cranberry, Pineapple and Beets



G - Mixed Green Salad with Goat Cheese and cooa nibs drizzled with a dark chocolate balsamic vinaigrette



H - Halibut and Salsa Verde



I - Iced Coffee Two Ways




J - Jubilee Sandwich



K - Key Lime and Ambarella Juice 


L - Limoncello Biscotti



M - Mini Meringue Kisses - Lemon Curd or Rose & strawberries  - click on the links for the recipe





Make sure you check out Months of Edible Celebrations on July 1st to see the full A-Z of goodies in the picnic basket!

  14. Stopping by from the picnic. I'm embarrassed to say that I've never made meringue--despite loving it. Perhaps you will inspire me! I think you win first prize (all our admiration?) for posting pictures with the picnic list--looks great.
