My MIL's birthday is Saturday and we're going to have a picnic to celebrate. My husband has put me in charge of making food for this picnic. (He told me today, so I basically have Friday night to get everything ready.)

My MIL is NOT a food person. She only likes very basic food, nothing fancy. I found Meryl's list of picnic foods by Mark Bittman--I loved it but most of it is too elaborate for my MIL.

But now that I think about it, Barb's chicken salad that she posted yesterday in my baby shower post would probably be good. We could do that with rolls, and I could make Traca's fruit salad. In fact, perhaps I should just turn this into a trial run for the baby shower menu. I think she'd be okay with all those recipes. I had already said I'd make her a chocolate cake, so that's already planned.

Ok, now I feel better. Just need to make a list and send my husband to the store. Now we just need to find a park...
