On the Go

I found these recipes about ten years ago as part of a picnic menu in a 1998 Better Homes and Gardens Annual Recipes cookbook. I packed them in a cooler along with some gazpacho for the Maryland Symphony Orchestra's Salute to Independence Concert at Antietam National Battlefield - which is fabulous if you ever have the chance to go! I also served them at a "Sip and See" I hosted for my yoga teacher friends after my first son was born. And more recently, the recipes came along with the boys and I for a fantastic lunch at the Cincinnati Zoo. Perfectly portable, yet pretty enough to serve to company. Enjoy!
