This year, well, I got home from work on Thursday and found a box on my front stoop. Now, I'm expecting a box of things but I don't think they will come in a Harry and David box. I brought it inside and, because it's a box, Mija had to check it out.
The card was in the paperwork removed from the left side. It was a gift from Carole and David. How thoughtful. It can't be their famous pears because it's not the right season for those.
Opening it up, the first thing I found were these ice packs. Oooh. I take my lunch usually and I will, sometimes forget to put the ice pack back in the freezer for the next day. Having 3 packs will mean I can always keep my lunch chilled. The packs say "Reusable". Hey, I'm way ahead of you on that.
Rich doesn't cover it. I, who can eat a whole bag of Oreos over a day, can only eat one piece of the size you see here. I took some over to Pam's yesterday to share with her and her husband. They agreed that this was one of the richest cheesecakes they had ever tasted. Today, I'm cutting it into pieces and wrapping each piece for lunches or dinner over this coming week. I'm hanging onto the silver bag. I'm not sure what I'll use it for but it just speaks to me that it's something I should save.
Thank you, Carole and David, for an amazing gift. I think about you with every bite.
