Check out Updated Information Page on Website Plus New Recipe Idea

Check out the Updated Page on my website, www.cruisingconnecticut.com

I just posted new information to six day trips in Cruising Connecticut with a Picnic Basket since publishing the 3rd Edition in the spring of 2012. The goal of keeping the information in my book up to date is that thousands of people who rely on the information printed may be spared disappointment to arrive at a destination only to find changes.

Since it is difficult to keep up with 42 places throughout Connecticut, if any readers find significant changes during their travels, please let me know at jan@cruisingconnecticut.com and I will share the information on this updated website page. Thanks.

Summer Picnic Recipe from Cruising Connecticut: Fresh Fruit Kabobs There is not much to say about my fruit kabobs. They are so easy and quick it hardly pays to print a how-to recipe. But, what if you created a fun alternative to this refreshing summer treat.

For example, Instead of fruit kabobs, place your choice of cut-up fruit in a bowl and set out with a container each of vanilla and strawberry flavored yogurt. Add small bowls with a choice of toppings, such as granola cereal, chopped walnuts, banana chips, yogurt raisins, shredded coconut, Craisins and honey graham cracker sticks.

What a small amount of effort to surprise and wow family and guests at your next picnic.

Happy picnicking!
