Beat the Heat Family Picnic


I was beyond thrilled to host a party sponsored by NESTLÉ DRUMSTICK as a member of the Foodbuzz Tastemaker program.  My party theme was a "Beat the Heat" picnic for my family and friends.  

Since the hot weather has finally arrived, cooking in the kitchen can be a chore. I decided a party based only on dishes that can be made from the refrigerator and pantry (no stove needed) would be a great way to keep things cool in the kitchen.  I made an array of sandwiches, veggie salads, fruit salads, fruit juices and of course lots of  NESTLÉ DRUMSTICK  ice cream cones.  NESTLÉ DRUMSTICK was a perfect sweet treat to end our  "cool" meal because everyone from our youngest guest at age 5 to the oldest at 80 all wanted to have a delicious cone to enjoy.  I'm looking forward to enjoying more "Beat the Heat" picnics this summer and NESTLÉ DRUMSTICKS will definitely be a part of it since it is perfectly portable and easy to serve (no utensils required).  Thanks to NESTLÉ DRUMSTICK cones my picnic was fantastic and totally fun and cool.

 We had such a fun time enjoying all the cool picnic fare. 
 We also had a blast having watermelon seed spitting contest and the always silly and fun ice fights.
