Each week a nutritionist from the University of Maryland Medical Center provides a guest post to The Baltimore Sun's health blog Picture of Health (baltimoresun.com/pictureofhealth), which is reprinted here. This week, Emily Rice, dietetic intern, weighs in on picnic foods. The weather is warming up, and for many of us this means heading outdoors to enjoy all the spring and summer have to offer. Sunshine, fresh fruits and vegetables, and friends make for the perfect picnic; however, many of us struggle with picnic temptations.

The beach. The beautiful water. The strolls along the boardwalk for summer foods. The lovely house with the wraparound porch and the sunny breakfast nook. And the two-hour backup on the Bay Bridge. The rowdy, half-naked crowds pushing in line for french fries and saltwater taffy. The expensive rental house with the unstable porch, not to mention the dingy decor. Beach vacations can be a mixed bag - and that's when you've taken care of the things you can plan for. Bad weather, unexpected traffic and incompatibility among friends who don't work so well as weeklong housemates can all put a damper on what you hoped would be a great vacation.

Here's the dish: The two candidates running to be the next Howard County executive met for breakfast Monday at the Double-T Diner in Ellicott City. They described the dining-table discussion as cordial. On the menu were family updates and analysis of local campaigns. They said they didn't spend much time talking about their own race. As for what they ordered? One candidate had scrambled eggs; the other preferred their eggs over easy. Perhaps keeping the county's push for healthy habits in mind, both candidates had a side of fruit.

It's hard to imagine a picnic without cheese, but when you're going to be out all day in the sun, you should choose your cheeses wisely. There's nothing worse than unwrapping the cheese you painstakingly selected, only to reveal a runny mess. Picnics take many forms, and the cheeses you choose depend on the nature of your outing. If you will be unloading the car and walking 50 yards to the picnic table, then you can choose more delicate cheeses, because they won't be out of refrigeration for long.

The county government's annual picnic, an employee staple for more than a decade, has been canceled for lack of interest -- done in, it seems, by low morale and increased costs.The break-even point was 250 to 300 persons, said Maggie Brown, assistant to the county's chief administrative officer. By Friday, fewer than 200 people had signedup. Last year, more than 1,000 attended. The picnic was to have beenheld Sept. 29 at Centennial Park."They eliminated some things and raised the price. This is the first year I was not planning on going," said M. Patricia Britt, an 18-year veteran of the county Public Works Department.

Nearly 400 people from across Maryland gathered in New Windsor for the mayor's down-home picnic. Dress was casual, with many favoring Western attire. Hay bales provided extra seating and the menu was all-American pit beef. Despite a wide range of political backgrounds, the atmosphere was downright convivial. Mayor Jack A. Gullo Jr. called the bipartisan party a time to put politics aside and gather together as a community. He promised no speech making or fund raising - the party was his treat.

Hundreds of politicos gathered in Prince George's County Saturday afternoon to mix and mingle at an annual event hosted by some of the state's most powerful Democratic lawmakers. An afternoon downpour cut attendance at the annual barbecue, which for decades has been a must-do election season event on the calendars of candidates and hopefuls alike. Hosted at the Upper Marlboro farm of Del. Joseph Vallario, chair of the House Judiciary Committee, the goodwill gathering both benefits the reelection of Vallario, Del. James E. Proctor, Jr.  and Sen. President Thomas V. Mike Miller and gives other candidates a chance to mingle with supporters.

I will spare you the background info on my residency here and my allegiance to and support for Howard County libraries. Suffice it to say, it's lengthy and solid. I love books. I read them often in the library - Central Library, which has become disappointing. Chatter on the cell. How do I know? I hear them. Everybody hears them. Children. Candy. Sticky fingers. Grrrrrh. They, like the adults, print without paying. Kids are dropped off and left. I'm sure you're aware and probably feel for them.
