The Art Of The Picnic

I like this Korean lunch box picnic. Simple portable food in containers eaten outdoors by lovely surroundings. That says picnic to me.
Recently I listened to the Kojo Nnamdi show where they discussed picnics. Everyone has their own ideas about what makes perfect picnic food.
Mark Bittman gives 101 ideas for picnic food in a New York Times article. Martha Stewart gives some ideas for picnic crafts.
Having the right basket, blankets, napkins, glasses, utensils, disposable hand wipes, and extra bags for trash are always things to think about. If we can make them pretty, then all the better.
These Christmas in July almond cinnamon cookies might be a nice treat for dessert. For me, nothing says picnic like deviled eggs. Picnics as a kid always included them. Somehow it's just not a picnic without them.
I'll be making some this weekend for a picnic with my friend and her kids. What foods say picnic to you?
