Sometimes the trick lies in putting a bunch of different things together — the Toscana soup I already had frozen in the fridge, the cherries came with the latest basket, the chocolate/pretzel balls came from Trader Joe’s, the bread was from Avanti with a bit of butter and garlic powder, the marinated cucumber salad I made earlier that day and the wine was the wine. No complaints!
