Picnicking Not Panicking: NaBloPoMo

Eating outside or inside?

In theory, eating outside on a nice summer day sounds like a lovely idea. However, there are mosquitos,bees and seagulls waiting to pounce on their target. I have learned to adapt to eating outside. Picnics can be wonderful if you are prepared.
So if you are having a picnic, bring the bug spray to keep the mosquitos at bay. If you want a natural bug spray, there are recipes on Pinterest. If it doesn’t work, I hear that the Repel with Lemon and Eucalyptus works. Also, if you don’t mind using deet, use it because it definitely works.

I also found a bee deterrent on Pinterest. Apparently, bees do not like cloves and lemons. The post says to put about 10 cloves on half of the lemon. I’m definitely going to try it this summer.

As for the seagulls, we save our bread crust until the end of the meal. Then we throw it as far away from the picnic tables as possible. It's not fool proof by any means but it does distract the birds for awhile.

Happy picnicking everyone!!

I could be the worst cook in America. My boyfriend tells his friends about my cooking disasters. I'm glad someone is amused. I like movies, music, comic books and corny jokes.
