SUMMER IS HERE, YO. Forgive me for shouting, but holy cow, can you believe it? My kid’s about to “graduate” from kindergarten, so Memorial Day weekend is the beginning of the end of his little-kid years. We’ll be attending a big picnic potluck in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park, which has me zipping hither and yon across the web, looking for ideas.
Lindsay’s already given you her picks for kid-tested summer grilling recipes, so I thought I’d point out what I found for family picnics. Click on through to see something for everyone…
foodie family garden couscous salad
This Garden Couscous Salad from Foodie with Family—which uses Israeli couscous, my favorite (it even comes in a whole wheat variety)—is so flexible, you could probably please even the pickiest eater in the bunch.
I’m kicking off the summer with my “Summer Friday Salad” of strawberries, sugar snap peas, cucumber, and Pecorino. Harry will actually eat every ingredient except the cheese, which is something of a miracle.
Another flexible option: This Zucchini, Mint & Ricotta Frittata from One Hungry Mama. Change the vegetable, change the herb, change the cheese…
And what’s a picnic without some sort of fried(ish) chicken? Deviled Chicken with Pecan Panko Crust from Devil & Egg is just different enough to please the parents, but still familiar enough to keep the kiddies happy.
If I were feeding a bunch of hungry meat-eaters, I’d go with Overnight BBQ Brisket with Tangy Coleslaw—served on a whole wheat bun, it’s nothing short of mind-blowing. (Pack the coleslaw and BBQ sauce separately, so the bun doesn’t get soggy.)
Sometimes the simplest sides really are the best: Check out this salad of Green Beans with Chopped Egg and Olives from 5 Second Rule (whose author, Cheryl Sternman Rule, just published one of the most gorgeous cookbooks I’ve ever seen: Ripe: A Fresh, Colorful Approach to Fruits and Vegetables).
Picnic desserts are easy: Fruit, fruit, and more fruit. But a special occasion—like, say, Memorial Day—calls for something a little more fun. Deep, Dark Chocolate Cake in a Jar from Sarah’s Cucina Bella does the trick. I mean, c’mon: What kid wouldn’t be delighted to have her very own jar full o’cake?
