It's the 8th of the month, and time for another chuckle at Dave Barry's humor. This month, he explores the idea of planning a summer picnic, Martha Stewart style. Enjoy!
"Step one in planning a picnic is to decide on a menu. Martha Stewart has loads of innovative suggestions for unique, imaginative, and tasty summer meals. So you can forget about her.
"If Martha Stewart comes anywhere near my picnic, she's risking a barbecue fork to the eyeball" should be your patriotic motto. Because you're having a traditional picnic and that means a menu of hot dogs, charred into cylinders of industrial-grade carbon and hamburgers so undercooked that when people try to eat them, they leap off the plate and frolic on the lawn like otters.
Me again: Please share some of your favorite summer picnic menus.
I'll go first. :)
One of my favorite summer recipes is cooking shrimp soaked in lime juice on the grill, then serving it over a crisp green salad. Easy and light for those hot summer days.
