T@t{picnic} Table: A Leftover Picnic

Last night I entered the kitchen at approximately 7pm after working out at the gym. 
Time to start the dinner I promised the troops. 
That will be at least an hour...ugh.

Open the refrigerator door to start the prep work and what do I spy?  BBQ'd chicken breasts and tomato soup left over from other meals. Light bulb!  Turn around and see the fresh bread on the counter and I've got dinner covered in 10 minutes. 

A kitchen table covered with sewing items automatically called for a picnic on the carpet.  Chicken salad sandwiches, tomato soup and red grapes on a Bliss tablecloth while watching House Hunters International.  Perfect.  
I'm linking up with Debbie from A Quilter's Table with her Tuesday at the {picnic}Table feature.  

Have you ever had a leftover picnic? Please share! 


  1. Living alone I picnic a lot. LOL Fabulous idea and it looks soooo good!

  2. awesome & yummy! We have 'clean out the fridge' nights, which isn't quite so glamorous. But when the kids were smaller, we'd often have picnics inside on rainy days - they always loved that.

  3. Sounds perfect to ME TOO!

  4. Fun! My kids love having picnics on a quilt in the living room, too!

  5. Yum! Leftovers are my favorite!!!

  6. Well not a leftover picnic, but a leftover smorgasbord. Great idea, Susan!
