Snow flakes are coming down in flurries as I am dreaming about summer picnics. My husband looks forward to planning out a place where we can take a small lunch and just have a fun meal outdoors. Now, we have a nice deck and yard, so every summer night we could eat outdoors. But, the fun of a picnic is having different scenery and the adventure of taking out the picnic blanket and enjoying the memories later.
I have some favorite picnic foods that I often pack for these types of meals. Little tea sandwiches with cucumber and cream cheese filling; fresh sweet Michigan cherries; mini tortilla roll-up slices filled with lettuce, crispy bacon and sun-dried tomatoes; cheese and crackers, pickles, olives, celery sticks with fresh herb dip, banana bread or homemade granola bars, any homemade cookie, and Mason jars of homemade iced tea. I love to wrap my sandwiches in waxed paper for these outings.
Over the years I have collected various picnic baskets and blankets just for this purpose. I love adding to my collection. Recently, I was given the opportunity to review a set of Hango high density fabric lunch bags. I love these bags. Both could be packed for a picnic lunch. I will use one to keep my vegetables and herbal dip cool with the thermal insulation interior. The smaller bag will also have room to include my fruit and cheese. For the larger bag, I plan to pack my drinks, sandwiches, and cookies with napkins. Compact and durable, these cooler bags are perfect for a picnic. They came in a 100% cotton drawstring bag which is also nicely fashioned. They have a lifetime warranty. #hangobags
