I will have family in town for the weekend. On Saturday I would like to have a day of relaxing around the pool. I'd thought to make a bean salad or chicken salad ahead of time and have some good bread and cheese and meats. Cookies for dessert. However, this menu is starting to sound really boring to me and I'd like to be inspired by your great ideas. We are in Texas and it will be 95 degrees on Saturday; we will be lounging around the pool children included. I'd like to make most everything on Friday and just pull it from the fridge on Saturday.
