Good Things for Outdoor Entertaining

Pocket Utensils-- Keep silverware and napkins in one place for picnics and other meals on the go. Oilcloth is the ideal material for this pocket project; it won't fray, plus it can be wiped clean easily. Start with a 9x10 inch rectangle in your favorite pattern. Fold in half vertically. Make a slightly diagonal slit,about 3 inches long,just above the midway point. Stitch the long side and bottom closed,about 1/8 inch from the edge. Leave the top open for napkins,and use the front pocket for utensils
Berry Bread Spread- Take advantage of berry season with a colorful,flavorful spread fresh fruit butter, delicious on bread,scones, and bagels. To make it, put 1/4 cup berries, 1/8 teaspoon salt, and 1/3 cup softened unsalted butter in the bowl of a food processor.Process until well combined. Refrigerate the mixture in an airtight container for up to 3 days or freeze for 1 month
