Virtual Summer Picnic and Flavors of Summer Giveaway (closed)

Virtual picnic logo

I’m participating in a Virtual Summer Picnic this week!  Starting today, a group of bloggers are posting favorite summer/picnic recipes.  The virtual picnic ends on July 3rd, culminating in a giveaway.  Picnics are all about food that is easy to put together, easy to transport (if you’re going to a real location), and sharing it with friends.  Since I consider my readers my “virtual friends,” I’ll be sharing a few recipes this week with you.  The last picnic I went on was last summer when Joey’s family had a reunion.  We spent a very memorable day at my brother-in-law’s cabin on the lake.  Read further for details about the virtual picnic, and for a few pictures of our day at the cabin…


Celebrate Sweet Vidalia Flavors of Summer with the great tastes of fresh Vidalia Onions, Avocados from Mexico, Gourmet Garden Herbs, Johnsonville Italian Sausage, mangos, watermelon and Stemilt Cherries. Great food and good friends make everyday a party to remember so start entertaining and visit for recipes, coupons and entertaining tips.

Start celebrating the Flavors of Summer and enter below for a chance to win 1 of 7 prize packages.  Each prize package includes: a $50 Visa gift card, an “I Love Avocados” t-shirt, the newly released cookbook “Summer Thyme” from blogger Jennifer Dempsey, fresh Vidalia onions, and squeezable herbs from Gourmet Garden.

The prize winners will be announced during our Virtual Picnic PinChatLive on Wednesday July 3rd, 4:30-5:30pm Eastern on The Flavors of Summer Virtual Picnic Pinterest Board.

  2. So happy to be participating in the virtual picnic with you. Can’t wait to see what recipes you have to share. 🙂
