Recipe Ideas

Chicken Caesar Wraps

Wraps can be a good alternative to lunch meat sandwiches. Be creative with all the recipes and options out there. This recipe is a great twist on a classic caesar salad. To make it, you’ll need three cups of shredded romaine lettuce, two cups of cooked and chopped chicken, six slices of cooked and chopped bacon, grated Parmesan cheese, croutons, dressing, and five to six flour tortillas. Mix all ingredients together except the dressing (and the tortillas!). After it’s all mixed, add the dressing. Spoon onto the tortillas and you’re ready to go!


Zesty Fruit Salad

This salad is easy and so delicious. To make it, you’ll need an apple, an orange, two kiwis, a banana, a cup of blueberries, and a cup of red grapes. For the dressing, you’ll need canned coconut milk, Greek yogurt, basil leaves, a lime, and honey. Make the lime coconut basil dressing and mix in with the chopped fruit. This salad is a great alternative to traditional fruit salad or fruit bowl.


Games Ideas

Corn Hole

Corn hole is a great outdoor game that is perfect for all ages. You can make your own set or purchase one online if you don’t have one. To make corn hole boards you’ll need a jigsaw, measuring tape, compass, plywood of different sizes, and a few other items. Visit the DIY Network to find out how to make these and everything that you’ll need.



Horseshoes is a fun game for everyone and an outdoor classic. If you don’t already have some, you can purchase a great horseshoes set from L.L.Bean. Once you’ve got your horseshoes, set them up and practice your aim for a classic way to enjoy your time outdoors.
