this website - I thought it was a really clever way to pack a picnic. Yes, you could do the same thing in plastic containers, but it was a attractive, clever use for all those mason jars I have hanging around from the canned goods we ate over the winter.
A quart sized jar would easily accommodate a fresh shake & eat pasta salad for 2-4 people.
I liked the recipe for White Sangria as well - a fun twist on a festive classic.
I would completely skip the dessert they suggested and put make a fruit salad instead. Ok, maybe with chocolate chips in it!
