Roasted Chicken & Goat Cheese Salad with Lemon Dijon & Cranberries | To-Go

This week, I took lunch to the School House girls since they've been working so hard on packing up orders from the fall launch.  I've added these Kraft To-Go Boxes (set of 10, $6) to the store just for moments like these.  We've used them so much in just the last week that I've had them at my house.  Emma and I put sliced baguette, cheese and apples in for an impromptu picnic, too - so glad to be able to just recycle it when we're at the park instead of dragging it home to clean.

I've also used them to pack up leftovers for lunches - if we don't plan to eat them right away, I can wrap in plastic wrap and put it in the freezer for another night.   

They are also great for Boxed Lunches for Baby or Bridal Showers - especially at a casual party.  Everyone can grab a box - they can be tied with ribbons and pretty paper napkins.

In addition, I added a couple more to-go items for the Fall.  Claire (the school house manager) is married to my Brother, Josh - he requested a larger 20oz. to-go coffee cup.  He leaves really early in the morning to feed cows and wants to fit two KCups of coffee in his cup.  What Josh wants, Josh gets.  Little brothers!

My Dad requested these to-go Soup Containers.  He said they would be great for a harvest meal in the combine.  I'm guessing that means I'll be filling some with chili to deliver to the field, soon.  I think they'll be great filled with soup to go along with my box of salad and box of sliced baguette and cheese for a fall time picnic.   I also plan on using them at the School House Open House in October for samples of soup.

Great ideas, guys.  My Dad and Josh have become more involved in my store operations since it moved near their farm.  They get caught carrying boxes they see on the front porch of the School House when they drive by.  And for the record, one day my Dad carried in a box of the to-go coffee cups and said 'why would you need these??'  They've since become one of his favorite things.  Ha!
