I’m all about simple, inexpensive and low-stress family fun – the kind of thing you can pull together at the last second when you’ve got an hour to spare on a sunny afternoon. And one of my favorite ways to make a regular meal more fun – especially now that the weather is turning nice! – is planning an impromptu picnic.
You might remember that I have been working with Heinz Ketchup to create a series of videos highlighting fun ways to use their ultra-convenient Dip & Squeeze Ketchup that allows for both dipping and squeezing. You can buy them in a pack of 10 at the grocery store and they’re perfect for eating on-the-go.
Here’s one of my favorite videos that shows how I make homemade chicken nuggets with panko crumbs, perfect for a picnic at the park – or just in your backyard.
And now I’ve got some fun news: Heinz Ketchup is going to give one of my readers a fun picnic prize package which includes:
- Heinz Dip & Squeeze Ketchup
- Picnic basket
- Checkered napkins
- Citronella candles
Plus, I’ll randomly choose two additional winners, who will receive a supply of Heinz Dip & Squeeze Ketchup to try out at home. It might seem weird to get excited about ketchup packaging, but the first time I saw one of these convenient new packets, I yelled “This is SHEER GENIUS!” and my kids now beg to use the Dip & Squeeze Ketchup every time I make anything remotely dippable.
