15 Backyard Picnic Recipes to Enjoy from the Comfort of Your Home

Just because you're not venturing far doesn't mean you can't enjoy a picnic! Eating outdoors can be a real treat, whether you're going on a hike or just spreading out a blanket in the backyard. And if weather or space poses a problem, never fear: an indoor picnic is just as fun. Arrange a picnic blanket on the floor, complete with reusable bamboo cutlery, and pack a basket of tasty treats to carry in from the kitchen. Get kids involved in picking the menu, and if you're indoors, you can even encourage them to draw or imagine their own far-flung scenery.
