Mother’s Day Picnic Menu
A modest picnic makes for a Mother's Day meal kids can handle and moms will enjoy.
Last year on Mother’s Day, my son served me a peanut butter sandwich on the porch. A friend of mine heads to the park with her kids to eat chicken out of the bucket. Whether in a backpack, a picnic basket or a paper bag, a picnic is a treat. Here’s one the kids can pack. Lets face it, for most moms, it’s not about the food, but the thought. Don’t forget the Frisbee . . . or the wine.
A quick-and-easy lunch idea starring creamy Alouette spread and deli turkey.
Leftover grilled chicken works well in this tasty, travel-worthy salad.
Kids love this creamy hummus with sliced vegetables or pita bread.
These simple lemon tarts are perfect to make with kids. They’ll love whipping up the filling with a rotary egg beater and spooning it into the tart shells—that is, if they don’t eat all the filling in the process.
Vanilla beans combine with pineapple and strawberries for a refreshing dessert.
Barley's not just for soup -- it's a perfect match for spring asparagus.
