No Summer Is Complete Without A Picnic! (Giveaway)

CONTESTS | | June 24, 2011 at 2:00 pm


Congratulations Katie!

I don’t know about you but nothing excites me more than eating outside. In fact it can be just drive-thru food but taking it to a park somehow squashes the whining flat out – no mean feat if you ask me. Even on a rainy day throwing a blanket on the floor gives a whole new meaning to a meal. We all have memories of picnic and to me they are the epitome of summer. Sitting with my 4 sisters (yeah, I said 4 but boy were we fun to be with) at a picnic in Durban (in South Africa) meant that outings on a budget were not only possible but memorable.

Recently Kraft offered me a chance to peek into a basket full of their products and coupons for the rest. I am normally cautious about coupons and products unless it is items I actually can use and here there were several items. The coupons were to get the items for free so things like cheese (anyone not like cheese?) so definitely items that would be staples on your shopping list.

In fact I already reached out and used the olive oil and pepper mayo to brush on steak swordfish kebabs. Delicious, I tell you!. So I could come up with several recipes but the ones they send you should take you all through summer and beyond.

The picnic includes 17 coupons or products from Kraft Foods brands including Wheat Thins, Teddy Grahams, new Stackermallows -marshmallows – thin marshmallows ideal for S’mores!

So now it is your turn to share with me your favorite picnic food.

Want to win a Kraft Foods picnic basket to one Mommy Niri reader valued at an estimated $150?

How pretty is that picnic basket and I love that it folds flat and it is built to take on the knocks of picnics.

To win tell me what is your favorite picnic food? Contest closes 2nd July 2011. Winners chose by USA and Canada only. Please don’t leave your email address in the comment).
