Its that time of year!

Picnic Season!

Did you know that April 23rd is National Picnic Day?!


I am hoping the weather will be nice so we can have a picnic dinner on National Picnic Day!

I have always enjoyed a good picnic from driving up to the mountains to a backyard picnic with my kids.

When my husband and first started dating we went on a lot of fun picnics, we would drive somewhere preferably in the mountains and where there was a lake, river or stream so Ryan could get a little fishing in.

What are your favorite picnic dishes you like to make?


Here is a quick and healthy smoked turkey and avocado roll! These are great for lunch as well.
