Picnics in the Sun

A friend and I went to the beach today for some relaxation. For some reason there was no swimming today, but we went ahead with our picnic and just hung out on the beach. And I got sunburned.

So dinner today was a few strips of bacon and scrambled eggs. Simple fare, quickly cooked.

But what's more interesting is that it's almost time for our Second Annual Redneck Bar-B-Que, and I need some ideas. I want simple, simple, simple--and, of course, appropriate to the theme.

I'm considering making it a weenie roast, with potluck sides. I also found moon pies on sale and bought several boxes. Perhaps a moon pie pudding? (If Paula Deen can do bread pudding with Krispy Kreme donuts, why can't I use moon pies?) I know I can get someone to bring a giant watermelon for a seed-spitting contest.

Of course there's also a best-dressed contest--appropriate attire is strongly encouraged!

If you were throwing a redneck bar-b-que, what would you serve? What other ideas can you come up with?

Picnic Sides was the Scrumptious Sunday theme today at Take a look at previous weeks too. There's lots of great home-style recipes, some fancy ones and even some award-winning ones. The participants are real friendly too, and I think that's a real plus. Tell her I sent you.
