Labor Day Ideas Mon, 09/3/12 9:50 AM (permalink)
Just bought a condo on the beach and excited that family is coming over for the day.  Any suggestions on what to make  for an impromtu picnic on the sand.  I have to keep in my mind that no grills are allowed on a private beach.

      I like keeping it simple, maybe a potato salad, some good cheese, a baguette, etc.

            I hope it isn't too late for these suggestions, make your own  sandwiches - offer small buns with an assortment of sliced cheese, roast beef or ham, etc.,   Buy, or cook your own chicken, and serve with some type of salad like cole slaw, macaroni, potato, stuffed eggs, salsa and chips,   Watermelon, or some kind of fruit mixture?

                    So blue heaven, since there were no pig roasts, what did you end up doing?
