Food! Whoo Hoo!

My Fresh Direct order arrived last evening. How neato. It was like Christmas...or like all 8 days of Hanukah combined into one lucious package, without the candles.

I now have actual food in my refrigerator. For those who know my erratic fridge stocking patterns, this is a major breakthrough. In fact, I'm a bit overwhelmed. What does one DO with a full refrigerator?

Uncle Irving checks out the goods.

Irving was very suspicious of the new delivery...or so I thought until I realized that there was a package of turkey burgers in one of the boxes. And as for those turkey burgers, they look really good...and so do my .5 inch vacuum packed boneless pork chops. My veggies look quite fresh, as well.

I think that I will probably use Fresh Direct again, though mostly for things that I don't want to carry...like soda and beer and wine. I forgot to order lime Diet Coke...should remember that for next time.

I only have one beef-- they need to get a packaging consultant. There was really no need for three boxes. I ordered a lot of stuff, however it was thrown into boxes in a very odd fashion. why not just load up one big box? I'm surprised that Park Slopers aren't up in arms about this, recycling and all.

Which reminds me...I have two Park Slope tales to tell. Hopefully I'll have time to write them today or tomorrow...

i think they package based on what needs refrigeration or not. and i don't think one HUGE box would be good for the drivers organizing the trucks or carrying them up stairs.

the only problem i had with fresh direct is managing to eat everything i bought. $40 is a lot of food for one person to eat.

Very true. Most of the $ I spent was on non-perishables...I think the meat, veggies and fruit only added up to about $20 bucks or so...

Good...now you can cook me dinner. I like gravy on my pork chops.

That means that you have to come to Brooklyn!
