Going on a Picnic for #SundaySupper!!

Picnic BasketYes I still fantasized about that dreamy guy that would pick me up without me knowing where we were off to. The guy would pack a cute picnic basket fully equipped with my favorite wine, glasses, cheeses, crackers, fruit and the whole shabang! He would spread out a comfy blanket and feed me the cheese and some grapes, then the screaming baby in the background awakens me from my dream! Back to reality!! Oh and the dreamy guy……of course he’s my hubby! :) So this weekend officially kicks off Summer for my family! Well I should say it usually does, it’s Memorial Day weekend, which is opening weekend at the campground we go to every summer. Why is this year different than any other year you ask? Well I’m due to have my son in 5 weeks and my camper has yet to be cleaned and opened for the summer…..UGH, we just have a lot on our plates with getting ready for baby Drew’s arrival and my husband finishing up my sister’s SundaySupperapartment off our house. Don’t worry it’s not stopping me from wanting a Picnic to kick off this wonderful weekend that means Summer is right around the corner!!!! I love picnics, well I never really enjoyed them until my daughter was born but since I’m a stay at home mom now, during the nicer months I just love being outside with her. Our picnics consist of packing a lunch box of sandwiches, snacks, fruit, drinks, and a blanket and heading to the nearest park!! My kiddo gets the two things she loves most, to be outside and food!! :) Of course I had to take part in this weeks theme!! The ever so talented #SundaySupper team has brought you their favorite dishes for any picnic!! Today’s event is being hosted Katy over at Happy Baking Days!! Thanks for hosting this Picnic Katy!!

What did I bring to this wonderful picnic??

Avocado Chicken Salad (1)

Well I’ve been wanting to try this new recipe I found while searching for healthier dishes (trying to prepare for after my son is born!) I love chicken, tuna and ham salad but I know the one thing in them that makes those awesome bring anywhere sandwiches bad for you is the mayo! I don’t even like mayo however I still love the salad sandwiches! I also have a new avocado obsession so when I came across a this recipe I altered to what I would like!!
