Last month my husband built an amazing back porch bed swing as a gift for me for Mother’s Day. It’s not very often that I know what to ask for for Mother’s Day, but this year I knew I wanted a special designated place for me to sit and watch my babies play in the backyard together and enjoy the warm summer air. Now that we have a place to sit, our porch swing has become the center of many family stay-cations as we venture “out back” to fire up the grill and have our weekly barbecues and picnics!
While we love to hit the road and travel to new-to-us places, sometimes there’s just no place like home. With two little ones in tow, it’s not always easy or convenient to load up the car and tote a picnic basket around and hope we find a comfortable spot to sit. In fact, lately the best views I’ve seen have been right in my own backyard, and this past weekend we spread out our beloved red-checkered tablecloth and served up all of our favorite summertime foods right on our own back porch!
While my husband tended the grill and put on the hot dogs and summer veggie skewers, I whipped up a few of our favorite side dishes to go along with the hot dogs and pulled pork. No pulled pork sandwich or loaded hot dog would be complete without a side of macaroni and cheese, coleslaw and baked beans! Even more, a picnic would certainly a bust if we didn’t have our favorite pickles to crunch into while we ate our favorite foods!
During my most recent shopping trip to Publix, I spotted these new Mt. Olive Pickles in pouches and instantly knew that they would be the perfect snacking option to share with my girls during all of our summer adventures – no matter if they’re at home or on the road!
I come from a long line of pickle lovers. My grandmother loved them, my father loved them, I love them and my two girls absolutely love them! I love the idea of these pickles being in easy-to-carry resealable pouches that make them easy to snack on whenever and wherever you are. I also love how Mr. Olive is continuing to bring innovation to pickles, even though they’ve been around since 1926! It’s no surprise to me that they’re the #1 Pickle, Peppers and Relish brand in the country!
There are multiple varieties available, and my oldest daughter put in a special request to try the kosher baby dill pickles while I picked up a pouch of kosher dill chips, bread and butter chips (my personal favorite) and buffalo kosher dill chips for Daddy to enjoy. During our backyard BBQ, I opened up all of the varieties for my family to munch on throughout the day, and each delicious crunch of a pickle instantly reminded me of many of my childhood summers growing up!
