The picnic is serve yourself. 
Today my granddaughters and I went
 English County Dancing all afternoon. I made the mac salad last night and soaked the chicken in buttermilk overnight. I baked the cupcakes this morning before we went dancing. When we came home at four I prepared the chicken, mixed the baked beans and put the frosting on the cupcakes. Dinner was ready at six.
We were so hungry from dancing.
We learned how to dance the same way 
'Jane Austen' danced in the 1700's.
What a hoot!!!
