Rain Or Shine-Picnic Foods A Hit With Kids (NAPSA) - Any day can be a good day for a picnic. Even if the weather outside calls for setting up a blanket in the family room, picnics can make a day special.
Picnics are also a good opportunity to involve children in preparing the meal. Helping mom pack up and head to the park-or family room-can turn a ho-hum day into a fun adventure.
Finally, the centerpiece of your picnic can be an automobile-inspired sandwich that the kids help make.
To make the filling: In a medium bowl mix mayonnaise, yogurt, curry powder (if desired), Sun-Maid Raisins or Fruit Bits, celery or bell peppers and green onion. Stir in tuna or chicken.
To make the "car": Cut 1/2-inch slice off the top of a roll. With fingers or a fork, scoop out bread from center of roll.
Poke hole in center of Sun-Maid apricots using a toothpick. Break pretzel stick in half and insert into each apricot to make the car "wheels." Insert wheels into bottom edge of roll.
Add apple slices for "fenders," if desired.
Make "headlights" using dab of peanut butter or spreadable cheese to attach raisins on one end of the roll. Cut "doors" in sides of roll, if desired.
Fill roll with about 1/2 cup tuna or chicken salad. Place roll top on top of "car." Repeat with remaining rolls.
Prep time: 20 minutes
Serving Size: Makes 6 Sandwiches
