What are your favorite picnic foods?

It's that time of year again when we'll start planning picnics.

Do you have standard foods that you take on every picnic or do you try to change it with new foods each time?

What are you favorite picnic foods?

What's the most bizzare food that you've seen someone bring to a picnic?

This is a multiple choice poll!

I love everything picnic!
It gives me a chance to cheat a bit on things I don't normally get to eat.

Brownies, hot dogs, any kind of pie, hamburgers, cookies, YUM-O!!

I haven't been on a picnic in years.
Burgers, potato or pasta salad, roasted corn on the cob and cola would be my choice.
Maybe brownies or some other kind of bar cookie.

I love fried chicken, potato salad, baked beans, and Cole slaw. They all taste fairly good when cold. Plus, once you get to the picnic, you don't have to cook. You can just enjoy being with everyone.

Fried chicken is my favorite, but I like pretty well everything at a picnic, Potato salad, baked beans, corn on the cob and most any dessert that is brought. Cold drinks.

Not sure when the last time I went on one, except I know it was with one of the girl's class field trip and we stopped to eat our lunch in the park.. We could only have sack lunches so I don't really call that a picnic

The really last picnic was a family reunion.
Love grill burgers/hot dogs either one be fine.
salads would be cole slaw, potatoe, English pea, then love the roasted corn on the cob but can't eat it now due to my teeth, to hard for me to eat off of the cob. love baked beans some better than others.
Love fruit... any kind would work for me.
same holds true for desserts and sometime eat more than my share. LOL
for my drink I like either Root Beer or Sweet tea.
If Fried chicken is there I may eat it or not, just depend on what else is there.

good subject to ask.

Happy face

I like them all.. and eat just about everything. Yep, I pig out on a picnic! I have to go easy on the baked beans though.. they hurt my stomach. But I can't resist tasting them anyway

I like all kinds of salads, desserts & fruit. I especially like when it's a family reunion cuz everyone brings so many goodies!
