Jersey Style Hot Dogs : The 'Picnic Game'

I am "going" on a picnic and I'm bringing some delicious food beginning with the letter J, .... for Jersey Style Hot Dogs. For those of you who are familiar with Louise, the lovely lady from Months of Edible Celebrations, would know about this on-line picnic called, The Picnic Game, that Louise is hosting each June, with the final round-up on 1st July.

And I'm "going" on a picnic with Louise and all the lovely ladies who has joined in the fun. This is the first time that I've joined The Picnic Game. June 18th is International Picnic Day and Louise has invited us for a picnic game for the month of June. The game is played by selecting a letter and you are supposed to make some food beginning from your chosen letter, to the picnic. The chosen letter will be confirmed and assigned to each person by Louise, like in my case, I chose the letter J, and it is for Jersey Style Hot Dogs. And that's not all, each of us must list what the other persons before your are bringing! It is a fun on-line picnic game!
