Sometimes I run errands at lunch time. The girls in the office love this too. We knock out our entire list of household items that need to be picked up at the local discount store, or makeup at the local pharmacy and then stop for a quick lunch on the way back to the office.
Another thing that has been a HUGE convienence. . .my employer started participating in something called Fruit My Cube. They have both Market Crates along with Fruit Cubes. I've purchased the fruit in the past (awesome, by the way!). This week I decided to purchase the Market Crate as well. It is loaded with all the main things that I will need to put together sides for Thanksgiving. . .almost everything is in there but the turkey!
It will be delivered on Monday. I'll keep you posted with recipes and photos of what I use the ingredients for next week.
Here is everything included in the Thanksgiving Market Crate:
2lb Sweet Potatoes
2lb Red New Potatoes
1lb Baby Carrots
1pt Grape Tomatoes
2 Sunkist Oranges
1 Red Pepper
1 Yellow Pepper
2 Yukon Bakers
1 Sweet Onion
1lb Broccoli Crowns
1pt White Mushrooms
Here is the fruit box I ordered as well:
4 Premium WA Apples
4 Sunkist Oranges
4 US #1 Pears
The fruit box that I ordered is $10.99. I think that is a pretty good deal, again, especially considering it gets delivered right to my desk.
Thanks, Fruit My Cube! You just made preparing for Thanksgiving a little less stressful!
