Picnic Food

My kids' school always does a back to school picnic, where you bring your own food. I have tried different things with varying success, including feeding them before we go, making something to bring, or grabbing a pizza on the way. Anyone have a great picnic dinner item that the kids can't resist or can eat on the run?

This year I don't think I'll be able to feed them before because of other activities, and my husband and I are going out to dinner after the picnic, so I am looking for something just for the kids.

Polka Dot Ice Cream Pie

My daughter Holland turned 10 yesterday! We can't believe she is double digits! We are big chocolate lovers here and often have some form of chocolate for birthdays, but Holland is also a sherbet/sorbet lover and this year asked me to surprise her with some kind of ice cream cake/pie. I have been saving this recipe for years and been meaning to try it -- Holland's birthday seemed like a perfect time and it was a HUGE hit.

Scoop balls of 3 different flavored sherbets, whatever your preference is (we used lemon, raspberry & blood orange) and freeze.
Soften 2 pts of vanilla ice cream and spread 1 pt. in a graham cracker crust. Push frozen sherbet balls into ice cream. Spread another pt of ice cream on top. Refreeze. Top with additional sherbet balls before serving.
