We had a wonderful afternoon at the park on Earth Day (yesterday). We arrived at a nearby park, had a feast (as usual, more so when my hubby is involved), and spent the next hour or two on slides, swings, monkey barring, running, jumping, laughing, clicking (on my camera), yawning (when we were ready to leave), etc. It was so much fun.
Of course, I packed my own food for a lunch picnic, as shown in the picture below. But what I really wanted to share with you today are these amazing drinking jars! I got them on Amazon a while ago and I’ve been using them for both hot and cold drinks. Best of all, they travel really well because I can just screw the mason jar caps on and they’re good to go. No spilling what-so-ever! As the picnic season approach, I can see myself using these jars more often. As a side note, yes, the Meyer Lemonade with Strawberries was mine and the plain one was my husband’s (if you don’t already know... he doesn’t like strawberries).
In case if you’re wondering what’s in the yellow container (in the picture above), that’s my greenest (although it doesn’t look that green) Chicken Salad. It has rotisserie chicken, green grapes, green olives and green onions in it. They were so good on my homemade loaf bread, and also amazing on the pretzel crisps! Yeah, I purchased extra pretzel crisps so I have plenty to work on my recipe contest. They make a great snack as well. Speaking of recipe contest, thanks to those of you who voted for me. Your help is greatly appreciated. Today will be the last day of voting. Can’t wait to find out who won! In case if you haven’t vote today, here’s the link again.
P.S.: If any of you is interested in the Greenest But Not So Green Chicken Salad recipe, just let me know in the comment and I’ll post it in the future. Have a wonderful week.
