Family Picnic Day


We had such a beautiful day here, I’m so glad we got to spend it outside! My husband and I had his parents over for lunch and I packed a picnic for us to take out. I made some recipes from my grandmother’s hometown cookbooks, books filled with recipes from our friends and family. I made ham biscuits, potato salad and strawberry pretzel salad.

I got little boxes for individual servings of our potato salad and pretzel salad. I lined the little boxes with parchment paper, filled them up and tied them shut with some cute green baker’s twine. We even had a legit picnic basket to carry it all in! It was such a lovely lunch and we just enjoyed being together.
