|Peterboro Picnic Basket from marybethhale|
The PicnicPicnics have never gone out of style. We've added more possibilities, but the pleasures of a picnic are as constant as the wicker picnic basket. Instead of white bread sandwiches and glass soda bottles, we now pack sushi and Sunner Kolsch. Once picnics meant summertime, but we've broaden to greater stages and seasons, from the neighborhood park to the bedroom, from summer to fall, winter, and spring. Our style of picnic has changed, but the picnic is still very much in style.
The Summer Picnic, Vintage Style

It is the heart of July, and this means a summer picnic, great grilling, and the sights of the wide outdoors. Where is that old picnic basket? It is the first necessity. Made of wood, spliced strips neatly woven, swivel handles, from the 1950's, and used for storage (and decor) when not part of the picnic. Pack it backwards, some say, dessert on the bottom, main entree, then the starters on top, and you'll have your goodies in eating order when it's time to flip the lid. And for ice, and cold, pack that determined and perfectly wonderful Coleman or Thermos ice chest you've had for many years. The best way to keep things cold is to fill it half with ice, half with food.

Grill ready? Place the rosemary-salmon skewers on the lightly oiled grate. These were prepared at home the night before, and when grilled for six minutes they will be ready for your guests. Serve them on your vintage stackable picnic plates. Plastic tableware is still best for a picnic, and looks almost elegant on a vintage tablecloth.
