So my birthday's coming up in mid-April, and it's a big one. After years upon years of baking everybody exactly what they want for their birthdays, I've decided to do myself the same favor. I'll be having a picnic (assuming weather is good) and have the dessert aspect already planned out: key lime pie, rhubarb cobbler, black forest cake.
So now I just need non-sweet picnic ideas. Two catches: the first, I won't have access to grills or anything so I need to bring everything pre-made. The second - I don't really eat meat and most of my friends don't either, so I'd like to keep this strictly vegetarian (cheese/eggs ok.)
All I can come up with so far - homemade crackers, cheese, dips, that sort of thing. Your usual uninspired pasta salads and bean salads, sigh. Anybody have brilliant ideas for me?
Thanks so much in advance!
