Finally, TiVo got it right! It made a suggestion that actually interested me! Today TiVo recorded the Rachael Ray Show...something I don't normally watch. Today's show provided tips for the perfect picnic basket. It gave a new twist on the fruit kabob and another easy-to-make & pack picnic idea. Thought I'd share. Thanks "Rach."
