    I'm laughing that we both chose potato salad for this recipe swap! And I was concerned other's might not think it was a picnic food. :)

    Strawberry dip (works well with apples, or on homemade cinnamon rolls too)

    This is a recipe for chicken spiedies...even if you have never heard of them, they are delicious, marinated chicken pieces that you grill. YUMMY!!! I served them to my mom and stepdad last weekend when they stayed with us and they were a big hit.
