Yes, summer is upon us and that means doing just about anything outdoors. A friend of mine gave me this little picnic tip and let me tell you... it works like a charm! No more pesky flies landing on your Bucket O' Chicken and vomiting their last meal upon it-which was probably cow poo.
All you need for this handy dandy tip is a lemon and some whole cloves. Slice the lemon into quarters and press the cloves into each lemon slice. You know how you put cloves in oranges at Christmas? This is the same thing only with lemons-and they are sliced.
This will make flies run for the hills. You will actually be able to enjoy an entire meal without shooing those darn pests away and cursing at the top of your lungs.
A word of warning... be sure to tell all of your picnic guests that the lemons are not to be eaten! When we got in the car after the last picnic we went to (the picnic where I picked up this fabulous idea) my husband looked at me and said "Did you try those awful lemon slices?"
I am surrounded by intelligence...
