Picnics are great in theory, yet can be a little less than ideal to execute. There's a reason that we dine indoors, because we have everything we need to make eating a meal a smooth experience: a flat surface to balance our plates, a steady supply of napkins in case we knock over our glass, and an environment with a steady temperature. But when the weather's nice, it's hard to resist the urge to picnic. And so, to make the inevitable outdoor lunching experience easier, it's a good idea to choose picnic-friendly foods -- desserts being a high priority.
