bld in a box

my friend, rebecca, had her baby on friday! last night was their first night at home as a family.  i wanted to shower them with food, as all new parents should be. after some contemplating i came up with BLD: breakfast. lunch. and dinner…in a box!

i tried to put some of rebecca’s favorite things in there like bresaola ( she is kosher and it is the one cured meat she can eat), bread, carmel corn, pasta, pellegrino,  ice cream(since, she wanted lots of that during her pregnancy), and a cucumber/tomato salad i made once and she always talks about it! for greg…well, he got beer and food…what more could he want?!! i dropped it off in front of their door and drove off, but not before they called me back and i got to spend a little time with them and the new baby. there is something so magnificent about a brand new baby in the room.  i have already teared up like 3 times(once at the hospital) at the sight of these dear friends as new parents.

BREAKFAST : granola and milk. greek gods honey yogurt ( my friend turned me onto this and it is so damn good!)

LUNCH:  bresaola/arugula/whole grain mustard/olive oil/s+p on fresh baguette

DINNER: pesto/ pea/ parmesan bow tie pasta

cucumber/tomato/red onion/feta salad

DESSERT: ice cream/chocolate sauce/ slivered almonds

EXTRAS: carmel corn/pellegrino/and beer!

i took an old box, cut off the top (with a not so straight line!) and stenciled “BLD BOX” on the front!

i also opened up the trader joe’s ice cream and ate some before i gave it to them. therefore, i had to stop and buy a new tub on the way to their house! hahaha!  hey, it’s summer and i am craving ice cream!

they loved the box and currently had no food in the fridge…perfect timing!
