It's that time of year. I love summer evenings spent in the park grilling and picnicking. Here are few essential items. Fun plastic plates are much better than their disposable counterparts. Definitely need wine glasses, and these one are acrylic. Sealable containers for side dishes. We usually roast brats and marshmallows and will make the sticks from old branches, so a we always need a pocket knife (with corkscrew!) Blankets for lounging in the grass and lots of sturdy bags for transport. Hope you might be having some fun in the sun too!
