As the temperature climbs and the days stretch longer, there’s one thing on everyone’s mind: soaking up that warm weather. And what better way to do it than with a good old-fashioned picnic? 

Picnics encompass far more than simply enjoying tasty food; they involve gathering friends and family together to embrace the beauty of the outdoors. The warm sun hitting your face while simultaneously smelling the bright flowers awakens the senses and brings joy from one person to the next. 

This being said, it’s time to plan your next picnic! Let’s take a look at some local parks to have a picnic as well as delicious recipes for you to make!

Once you have your picnic location, it’s time to plan what you will bring. Check out some ideas from our recipes site below!

Meal 1: Breakfast for Dinner – Market 32 Panko Chicken and Waffles (or pancakes!)

Essentials:

Waffle maker/iron

Large bowl

Measuring cups

Spatula

Oven-safe bowl or casserole dish

Large skillet

Chef knife

Serrated knife

Tongs

Pantry:

PICS Maple Syrup

PICS Vegetable Oil Spray

PICS Vegetable Oil

Water or milk per waffle mix directions

Egg

Preheat oven to Warm.

Wash strawberries under cool running water, allowing them to dry on a towel. For older children and adults, that may be all the prep needed; cut green tops off and slice into smaller pieces for smaller children.

Follow directions on the package to prepare the Krusteaz waffle batter. You will need 1 egg and vegetable oil (waffle batter recipe is on the package). The Buttermilk flavor is the most authentic for this fun meal. If using a waffle maker, be sure to follow appliance and recipe directions. Tip – spray PICS Vegetable Oil on both sides of the waffle maker between each waffle/serving and use tongs to ensure hot waffles can be safely and easily removed from the waffle grid. Place waffles in the bowl or casserole dish as each serving is done to keep warm. They will take a few minutes each round to cook; estimate 2 waffles per person. Hack – No waffle maker? No problem! Pancakes are a great substitute, or you could use PICS Frozen Buttermilk Waffles for a very quick fix!

While waffles are cooking, spray the large skillet and allow to warm. Place the panko chicken cutlets in the skillet and allow to cook for about 4- 5 minutes per side. Panko should be brown and may be slightly crunchy. Check internal temperature with an instant read thermometer, 165 degrees is done.

Set up 4 plates for serving. Slice chicken cutlets into 4-5 pieces. Place 1-2 waffles or pancakes on the plate and top with a pat of butter. Top the waffles with the Market 32 Panko Chicken cutlets. Drizzle PICS Maple Syrup on the chicken and waffles. Add strawberries and serve to some very happy people! Oh, and we can’t forget to mention that there is an eCoupon for strawberries this week! Be sure to clip the eCoupon here.

Meal 2: Lemon Garlic Panko Chicken & Pasta

This spring fling dinner is full of flavor! Minimal preparation keeps time on your side, while the fragrant lemon and garlic aromas bring everyone to the table. You can go big on with either flavor by juicing and zesting the lemon, and/or doubling up on the garlic.

Essentials:

Large saucepan

Colander

Tongs

Large skillet

Zester or grater

Citrus press/juicer

Small paring or chef knife

Pantry:

PICS Olive Oil

1 (10 oz.) Bag PICS Frozen Chopper or Leaf Spinach

3 fresh garlic cloves or 3 TBSP jarred minced garlic

1 cup unsalted chicken stock or broth

Fill the large saucepan with water and follow directions on the PICS Pasta box to prepare. Angel Hair, Farfalle or Spirals are great for this recipe. When the pasta is simmering, add the frozen spinach.

Place the skillet on the stove and add 2 TBSP PICS Olive Oil. Allow oil to warm gently and when shimmering, add 1 diced clove of garlic. Allow the garlic to cook and flavor the oil. Note – Garlic burns easily. Cook the minced garlic for a few minutes and scoop out the bits and discard as they brown. Turn the heat down slightly, add the chicken cutlets, the juice from ½ of the lemon, 1 clove minced garlic, and cook for 4-5 minutes per side until done, internal temperature at 165 degrees. 

The pasta should be cooked just before the chicken is finished. Drain the pasta and return to the saucepan. Once chicken is done, remove to a plate, and add the chicken stock, remaining garlic, remaining juice from the other lemon half, and lemon zest to the skillet. Scrape the bottom of the pan, and stir while warming.

Plate each chicken breast and divide the pasta and spinach evenly between each plate. Top with 1-2 TBSP of lemon-garlic sauce, and fresh parsley or a sprinkle of Market 32 Parmesan Cheese. Enjoy!

Price Chopper and Market 32 can help with your Easter celebration – from planning that Easter brunch or dinner to creating a unique basket your children will love! This first article will inspire you to decorate a table that’s sure to get you & your guests in the spirit of spring! Easter Elegant Place Setting Dining Table with Vase of Tulips While there is something to be said for tradition, it can get a wee bit monotonous, but a tweak here or there preserves it while allowing some creativity. One way is by simply changing your tablescape. Envision your table as a blank canvas and use it to set the stage for your holiday meal i.e. mix and match dishes, vary patterns but stick to the coordinating colors, etc. Make a dramatic statement or keep it simple! Create a tablescape with pastels and seasonal décor. A small Easter egg tree with hollowed out eggs or edible ornaments makes a great centerpiece while eggcups can be used as mini vases or placard holders. Small chocolate bunnies or eggs can be used decoratively as well, and then enjoyed as a special take-home treat. A spring-inspired tablescape is another option that lends simple beauty.  A vase filled with fresh flowers brings a bit of the outdoors in. Lilies, daffodils, and my personal favorite tulips, are all wonderful harbingers of spring. — Author: Maureen Rowan Murphy, Manager Consumer Trends, Nutrition and Lifestyles       1200x628_spring_cleaning_3 Although winter has been reluctant to loosen its grip, spring is finally in the air, and it’s time to get our homes ready to greet it. Spring cleaning was a time-honored tradition when I was growing up. I remember my mother throwing open the windows to “air out the house” and let the fresh smell of spring in. She would then go about cleaning the house from top to bottom. 1080x1080_spring_cleaningSpring cleaning is still a great way to freshen up and de-clutter. It’s also the perfect time to update your living space, and give it a fresh, new look for the season. Not sure where to start? Start off by ensuring you and your family are safe. Test smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors if you didn’t do it last month when the time changed, and replace batteries if necessary. Next, spring into action with easy cleaning and no or minimal cost decorating tips that will allow you to enjoy your home and the warm weather that is on the way. Now that your home sparkles and shines, take a deep breath and enjoy! — Author: Maureen Rowan Murphy, Manager Consumer Trends, Nutrition and Lifestyles Written By: Mark Larose from Garden State Growers “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times”……Charles Dickens Quoting such a famous author may seem an odd way to begin a blog on gardening, but as the weather is finally changing, I do believe that we are ready for the Best Of Times for Spring 2014. By now your clean up should be complete and if you haven’t put out your garden gnomes, and birdbaths, make some time this weekend. Your soil should be prepped as detailed in my earlier blogs, and planting should be done according to the zone you live in and what you want to see growing this season. The month of May is upon us and the words for the season are color, color, color! First, let me suggest looking around for color planters and pots that can accentuate your garden or balcony. There are a variety of shapes and sizes to choose from. Now, what to put into them? Since it’s been colder, later in the season, I’m going with some Siberian Blue Grass, Clematis, and Purple Sensation, which is one of the Spring blooming ornamental onions. Snapdragons and Iris are a good tag along also. 20140501_092147_resizedIncluding some vegetables or even strawberries can make your garden productive and beautiful at the same time. Remember that it’s your garden. There are no rules for your design, as it’s only limited to your own creativity. Also, lavender is very poplar this year and will add some wonderful scents to your garden on those warm days filled with gentle breezes. Ahhhhh……. Speaking of popular plants, have you considered, dare I say, critter prevention? Deer, rabbits and chipmunks are only a few of the potential problems. If you are a first season gardener, find out which of these potentially destructive animals live in your neighborhood and be proactive. Fences and repellents can help, but choosing plants and flowers that are less tasty is also an option. Doing your homework now can help with future enjoyment of your garden, and less frustrations. Lastly, have you chosen your ground cover? So many people seem to overlook the beauty and need for these hardy plants. Myrtle, ivy and pachysandra are great choices. I’ve seen a few gardens where some folks even used saxifraga as a filler plant, in place of some ground cover. Think outside of the box! Remember that gardening is a wonderful family tradition for many. If you have children, consider including them in this seasons planting. Remember to take pictures of your garden for Facebook and show it off to your friends. Either way, have fun. Happy Gardening!
