National Picnic Day!

Picnic DayOne would think that April 23 would be a safe day to honor picnics! It should be a great spring day, right?  Here in St. Louis, it’s a crap shoot.  Just last Friday we had a few snowflakes, and there was frost overnight all weekend.  Yesterday was 80 and sunny, today is supposed to be in the 50’s with rain.

So it’s possible that we will celebrate this great day having a picnic in our living room – it’s happened before, it will happen again.  But I’m pretty sure that come rain or shine, snowflakes or sun, there will be grilling.

Some great options would be one of our great grilled pizzas, such as the grilled pepperoni pizza, or the grilled santa fe pizza.  Maybe you’d rather just get a freezer bag of smoked pulled pork out and have a few sandwiches.  I know that chicken slider sandwich, and the caesar chicken wraps are always a few of my favorites.

You could bring along some smoked German potato salad as a great side dish, or pack the Italian pasta salad for some great nibbles.

Chicken in a blanket, Memphis sausage and cheese, grilled quesadillas, Nick’s sausage roll and  smoked sausage and cheese all SCREAM “Take me on a picnic!!” as well. You’ll be ecstatic with any of these choices.

So what are you going to grill for national picnic day?  We’d love to hear!
