Summer Picnic for 8 for under $20
Holidays makes me think of backyard barbeques, picnics, and having friends over. When I have guests, I don’t want to spend the whole day cooking and I don’t want to overshoot my food budget. Amanda, our dietetics student, and I figure we can to do a Summer Picnic for 8 for under $20. We figure it will take about an hour and a half of advance prep, not counting making the burgers, since that will be part of the party. If I can limit myself to one deviled egg and one cookie or brownie, my diet should be in good shape, too!
If you will be moving the party to a park or camping site, make sure to skim this article about food safety, Pack Safety in Your Picnic Basket. Bacteria grow best under warm, moist conditions.
