Off To Market Recap: Care Package


I recently told you about my brother who has "NO time for food." He works a lot and doesn't have a girlfriend, so it's up to me to make sure his diet doesn't consist of Taco Bell and In-N-Out. To surprise him I'm sending a care package, that you helped put together, full of healthy snacks, tasty treats and good almost-homemade food. I started you off, letting you know I planned to send him this catalog for prepared meals. You searched the web and added your care package goodies to the Yum Market. There was some great stuff to choose from, but here is what I'm putting in the package.

Yum Market diva participant, Crispet1 found these healthy Naked juices that are perfect for my brother. He drinks way too much soda so a little fruit juice will do him some real good. Although, I'll have to make sure these get there quick and cold, they're perishable!

Crispet1 also submitted this Trader Joe's jarred Cuban Mojito Sauce that is perfect for simmering with poultry. It's more chic than your standard jarred sauce and the Cuban Mojito name will appeal to my bachelor brother.

Three more, so


Fashion_doll24 says she always puts Nescafe cappuccino in her care packages. My brother's job requires that he wakes early and travels long distances, now before he leaves he can make himself a thermos (I should send him one of those too) full of hot cappuccino to enjoy on the ride.


BuzzSugar recommended these chocolate chip cookies from Zingerman's in Ann Arbor and even though I was thinking of only sending him healthy food, one treat is necessary. Besides there is nothing more comforting and homey than a batch of chocolate chip cookies.

Finally Crispet1 showed me a link that leads to Whole Foods' website that provides kitchen tips. Bro, if you're reading this, bookmark this link!

Im a huge fan of both of my Yum Marks. Just had a TJ curry simmer sauce last night. So good! And those cookies look delish!

I used to make packages for my son & daughters when they were in college. I would make extra portions of meals, put them in tupperware & freeze them. They would bring them back to school and microwave them for a home cooked meal.
