Maybe I am jumping the gun a little bit…But I am so happy that it is OFFICIALLY SPRING! My sweet daughter has reminded me that this means that I need to dust off the picnic basket and get it ready for an outing. Right now the family and I are in Florida on Spring Break so the weather is great for a picnic. I have 2 easy take along dishes.
Anytime we go on a picnic I am always careful to prepare things that do not need tons of refrigeration. So, when making a slaw I like to go with a non mayo based recipe. My son is a HUGE fan of the Herman’s Slaw that they serve at Louie’s. He cannot get enough of the stuff. So I have made it a personal project to figure this recipe out….So here is my version of this Oklahoma classic vinegar based slaw!
After a great main course every great picnic needs dessert! Here is my solution to all of the fabulous berries. How about a trifle. Actually I became an expert at trifles. This is because I am horrible at cooking pound cakes. Mine fall. They are not moist. In the past that used to make me super upset…but that was before I had found the glory of the trifle! So, if you are pound cake challenged….Here is a dessert to your rescue!
