Beach Picnic Menu
The first big dinner at our South Carolina beach house was a "Beach Picnic". It had been running 95 degrees or so, and though a little cooler on the oceanfront, it wasn't necessarily expected that we'd eat on the beach per se. This is our picnic menu, inspired by my sister in law Meghan.
