Please Come to a Picnic at Tuesday Throwdown Challenge #203

I'm not sure why so many men never cook inside, but when it comes to grilling outside they suddenly become large and in charge.  My DH is not a bar-b-que chef.  Consequently, this was not a skill passed from father to son at our house.  Now married with a family and home of his own, my son makes every attempt to be a superb grill master.  I may be a bit biased, but I think he does make a good looking cook. And, in all honesty, he has definitely perfected the art of delivering very consistent hockey pucks on a roll, with or without cheese.  Which is why I usually opt for a hot dog. I like them on the crispy side, anyway.
Our wonderful sponsor this week at Tuesday Throwdown Challenge is Meljen's Designs.  I chose this image, called Smokin' Hot,  which can be found here in the Meljen's Design Store,  and decided to make a fairly simple tent topper card so the image could take center stage.  The sentiment is one I quickly typed on the computer.

My talented teamies have all prepared something for this week's picnic theme using more great picnic images available in Meljen's store. Please take a moment to have a look see at the Tuesday Throwdown Challenge Blog and their individual blogs as well.

I hope you'll be able to serve up something to enter in this week's Tuesday Throwdown Challenge.
