From Bob Schulties, your About Today Editor
Picnics always sound better in theory than they work out in practice. No bugs, no lumpy ground, no "I didn't mean to spill juice on my brother's head." Twice?

The Perfect Picnic
As a city boy with no outdoor space, I have to trek a country mile to find a decent patch of grass to picnic on. So whenever we do bring all our stuff to the park for a picnic, it's a pretty big deal. And it has to be perfect.

My method of shoving it in any bag and yelling about "No whining if I don't have it!" leaves something to be desired.

It's Not a Picnic Unless There's Pie!
And if you can't find a pie in this list that you like, well...maybe you're not a pie person. Try these cookies.

I'm guilty of pushing the hotdogs and all that when picnicking. In fact, I bring my stretchy pants because I never eat just one hot dog. If you'd like to avoid the elasto-pants, we have some better ideas to make your picnic tasty and healthy.
