Make it: Marinate Do-Ahead Fried Chicken overnight, fry it in the morning and chill it until you're ready for lunch.

Buy it: Coleslaw, corn bread, honey, butter, cayenne, sweet iced tea, berries, whipped cream and vanilla wafer cookies.

Semi-homemade: For a quick dessert, layer your favorite berries in small jars with whipped cream and vanilla wafers.

Before you pack the butter, mix it with honey and cayenne.

Go green: Swap out paper plates for ones made from bamboo: They're pretty and compost-friendly. ($10 for 8; bambuhome.com)
