We are still having a hard time wrapping our brains around that fact that summer has officially arrived. Even though some days it is hotter than blue blazes and we have drank our weight in sweet tea, it still doesn’t seem possible. Today our monthly DIY Housewives Series is a bit different than our normal monthly challenges. You are in for a treat because we are sharing 12 perfect picnic ideas.

For us, summertime recipes and dishes are filled with homegrown tomatoes. Nothing tastes better than a fresh-picked warm and juicy tomato off the vine. The first Bacon and Tomato sandwich of summer is a time honored tradition in our family and a meal to be savored slowly. If we can be that patient 🙂

Caprese Pasta Salad - perfect dish for summer or a picnic

Our Caprese Pasta Salad is a perfect picnic food because it doesn’t have mayonnaise. It’s easy to do, you can make it ahead and store it in an air tight container. Most importantly it is delicious!

  1. I’ve taken this to the beach cold so many times and it’s amazing! We love it even more the next day so we usually let all of these flavors marinate as long as possible. Thanks for making me look like a good cook with these easy and fun recipes. Hugs, Coco
