    My mom would make her fried chicken when our family went to spend the day in the north Georgia mountains. I can still taste that succulent, tender chicken now. So, hands down fried chicken is my favorite picnic food. Another wonderful Thursday Things, this one is mouth watering to say the least. The photos, layout, lighting is perfection. Thanks so much for making this Thursday extra special.

      Oh man, Tom! Your chicken description is making my mouth water and my tummy grumble. haha! Sounds delicious.

    • Kathy

      Funny how mothers made the best fried chicken. Mine did, too.

    Apples are always a must have. You can never have a picnic without an apple or two. The Pearlette is beautiful! I’m currently saving my pennies for the Sonoran Sunset. The Duragraph, too, is a nice pen. I think I’ll pick one up here in the next few weeks. And the Platinum… I think that it will be my first gold-nib pen. In either the Bourgogne or Chartres Blue. The photography is amazing as always. We’re starting to get some autumn-feeling weather, so maybe it’s picnic time!

      The Platinum 3776 is an awesome pen. You’ll love it!!!

      David, I second what Kathy says about the 3776 pens.

    My favorite picnic food is pulled pork sandwiches and my grandmother’s German potato salad. The German potato salad is made with Crisco Oil and vinegar and eggs, potatoes, and scallions, and kosher salt. Absolutely delicious!

      Sounds great….I don’t like the mayo salads, so this is perfect!

    As a New Englander I have to say that my favourite picnic food would have to be fresh lobsters steamed in a huge pot! (Yes, they are alive before they are steamed. You can’t have old lobster.) Even though I can no longer eat steamed clams, oysters, or mussels because they carry something toxic to which I react violently, I still enjoy smelling their aromas and watching people enjoy them.
    My late Slavic Grandmother also had a great potato salad. This is why I hate them with mayonnaise. I also love shredded red cabbage — I hate green cabbage. BLECH! However, I love Brussle Sprouts. I cannot eat corn though it does taste nice because it does not digest in my system.

    • Lydia At Goulet Pens

      Lobster, yum!!! Those all sound like great options though.

  • Lesley Schultz

    For fall tailgate picnics my family makes hot chopped ham/egg/cheese sandwiches. SO TASTY!

    • Lydia At Goulet Pens

      Yummmmmm!

  • Kathy

    Gosh, it’s been so long since I’ve been on a picnic…this is a wonderful reminder!!! Favorite picnic dish would have to be coleslaw. Not the mayo kind, though. I use vinegar, but I wish I had the recipe for coleslaw made by the old Dutch Pantry restaurants. That was the best.

    Grapes!

    Grapes!
    They’re a perfect antidote to the triple digit dry heat in Southern California.

    • Lydia At Goulet Pens

      Green grapes are my favorite snack! Love them fresh out of the refrigerator cold!

    Any juicy fruit. So refreshing in the outdoors.
