The anticipation is palpable…you can feel it in the soothing warmth of the sun. You can smell it in the fresh cut grass and homemade cookies. You can see it sparkle in the eyes of your family, even your dog. Right on cue, your sister calls for directions, and…she’s going to be late. You hang up the phone and your mouth starts to water as you load the cooler with food. The original plan was modest, just for your family alone. However, word spread fast. The original plan gained energy and grew teeth, and was officially upgraded to a level-three picnic event! You’ve been waiting all week for this…picnic day has arrived and it’s going to be perfect!
There’s art, science, history, and tons of fun in the evolution of the picnic in all it’s forms. These days, everyone has their own way to get their picnic on. And while I hate to say that there’s one right way to do it, I have no problem saying that there’s definitely wrong ways to do it. That’s why you need a solid plan. You work hard all week and ALL YEAR – you don’t want to waste an epic picnic day with poor planning!
The spirit of the American picnic isn’t difficult to trace. We’re a nation of independent thinkers and determined eaters! It’s always been that way – woven into our national fabric as much as the Stars and Stripes on our grand ol’ flag or the potato in our salad. And the picnic has become an integral part of that fabric.
