What a wonderful time we've had playing the Picnic Game. There are just a few late comers but hey, this is a picnic and the comings and goings that go on at a picnic are all part of the fun. 

We had a few people who couldn't make it to play the game. They sent their good wishes and some goodies for us to enjoy in their absence. (Thanks Cynthia & Elise. We appreciate it:) 

I want to thank everyone for joining in on the festivities. I don't know about you but, I've had a ball! I've "met" new people, drooled over enticing dishes, and discovered so many new places to visit. We've "chatted" back and forth planning and juggling dishes around (thanks Mary:) and shared diverse dishes from around the globe. (thank you Selba:) Best of all IMHO, like girlchef said, we now have an "excuse" to all meet and have some picnic fun in person! (get that Hangar Steak ready Stacey. July is around the corner)

That reminds me, July is National Picnic Month. Why not have a picnic? Anywhere, anytime you can fill up that picnic basket and frolic under the sun. Schedules collide? Have an online picnic and play the picnic game with your family and friends! Perhaps, make some new ones. Louise

Y-The Alphabet Picnic Game basket is full.
I'm going on a picnic and I'm bringing...YOU!

  5. It's a real good experience to join this Picnic Game :)

    Thanks, Louise!

  6. Yay!! So fun...thanks for hosting this picnic, Louise!

  7. This was such a fun event, and it's fun to see what everyone brought to the picnic to share. :)

  8. What a great idea! So fun to see all the recipes and blogs. I'm too late or I would have brought the Spicy Fried Chciken. :-)

  9. Oh wow, what a great picnic. (Tzimmes!!!) I was afraid that we'd be overloaded with sweets given the first few letters, but what a wonderful variety.

    Some of the most fun I've had with recipes in a while :D

  10. This has got to be the best picnic spread I've ever seen! I'm particularly intrigued by the fruit cocktail meringue cake! What a great celebration - thanks Louise!

  11. Louise- You are so right on the salad. I had every intention of coming back and asking for the V and posting the salad. I ended up with sick kids and a child who broke his arm and its been rough over here at our house. Hopefully next time cause the picnic idea is a great thing! I love it and it turned out really great!

  12. Thanks everyone. It sure was FUN! Enjoy the dishes. I'm going to take another looks right now!

    It almost got to the point we could have had a double menu, I would have been over "stealing" that Spicy Fried Chicken, it looks so so good! Susan. .

    I too got a bit nervous Erica. I thought we were going to have a picnic of sweets. Which of course would have been just fine but look at those amazing dishes each and every one!!!

    Why does it not surprise me that you would be drawn to the fruit cocktail meringue cake, T.W? It is indeed a wonderful spread of tasty treats:) Thanks for dropping by...

  13. My goodness that was so fun to read! What a fun way to get all of those recipes! How is it that the ice cream in a bag worked for those kids?(see post) Very clever Louise!

  14. Oh, Louise, thank you for inviting me. What a yummy looking picnic, and it's everything a person could want in terms of enormity and quality!

  15. It was fun playing the picnic game.

  16. Excellent web site you've got here.. It's hard to find quality writing like yours these days.
    I honestly appreciate people like you! Take care!!


Through this wide opened gate,
none came too early,
none returned too late.
