The Meal is in the Mail

How about a Thanksgiving feast for your son or daughter away at college, a missionary or a needy family in your own area?

Idaho's Latah Eagle reports, "United States Postal Service has come up with an idea for sharing your holiday dinner with someone who can’t make a trip home. By using a flat rate priority box available at the post office along with the list of contents, instructions and recipes available at your local post office, you can send a truly traditional meal to whomever you wish."

According to the paper the suggested menu includes a roasted turkey with dressing, candied yams with marshmallows, mashed potatoes with gravy, cranberry sauce, olives and pumpkin pie with whipped topping.

"Now, you don’t send the entire meal ready to serve. That’s just not practical. But you can shop for the ingredients, pack the box, including the recipes and instructions that you obtain at your post office, seal the box, add an address label, and it’s ready to go."
