TTAH Tuesday – Winter Picnic

About this time of year in western NY, I begin to tire of the snow.  We’ve had snow, snow, and more snow this winter.  And it keeps coming.

In order to brighten up a particularly drab week, last Friday we had a picnic dinner.  Inside, of course.  But I made hot dogs, macaroni salad, and deviled eggs.  We got out a table runner that reminds us of summer.  I was kind of amazed at how excited the kids got about our “winter picnic”. 

It definitely brought thoughts of summer… even in the midst of a cold and snowy day outside. 

So if you’ve had enough winter and want to spark things up a bit at your house, have a “winter picnic”.  Make whatever yummy picnic food your family likes, and enjoy.  Now that I think about it, you really could go all out – let your kids wear shorts & t-shirts, make lemonade, have ice cream cones, use paper plates – whatever gets everyone in a good mood!

Try it and let me know how it goes!

  1. we have a picnic in the living room every friday night. we make pizza (unless i’m totally worn out, then we get main street), spread a tablecloth on the floor, and watch a movie. super fun. also a good incentive to behave well throughout the week.
