Looking for a fun, after-work idea? On a nice summer night, treat yourself (plus your sweetie or friends) to a concert in the park! Make one portable dish and buy the rest for an easy summer feast, because, what goes better with music than a delicious meal and a cool beer?
Make it: Grilled Pork with Rice & Quinoa Salad is easy to pack in individual portions, which means no extra serving utensils or platters required!
Buy it: Pickles, beer, fruit tart, heavy cream and crystallized ginger.
Semi-homemade: Jazz up a bakery tart or cake with a dollop of cream whipped with chopped crystallized ginger.
Pack smart: Each Kip It Cutlery To Go set gives you two handles and mix-and-match heads. Snap on a fork, knife, spoon -- or chopsticks! ($6 for a set, surlatable.com)
Save room in your cooler by packing your beers in a Chill It six-pack freezable bag. ($15, chillitbags.com)
