It’s Pasta and Picnic Time!

Recently we’ve had several delicious food quests running and today I’d like to point out two of them.

First up, I’d love for you to stop by our It’s Picnic Time! quest lens to find a whole bunch of terrific take-along food ideas that you’ll enjoy for the rest of the summer. Visit Squidoo Food Club Quest: It’s Picnic Time! to see them all and be sure to bookmark all of your favorites.

The second food quest I want to brag about today was one that was looking for Perfect Pasta recipes and we received tons of great lenses for this one. You’ll find one of the lenses from this quest featured as Lens of the Day today.  Browse through the following to see seven more of those scrumptious pages.

Have you got a great macaroni or picnic recipe to share?  If you do, be sure to post the link to the lens you’ve made about it here in the comments.  After all, one can never have too many great recipes.  Can they?
