New Find - Garnish & Gather

Hello, friends! This blog, which started off as an idea, has FINALLY come to fruition. I cannot tell y'all how happy I am to share my "life" with you. Currently, that involves food (and lots of it) and fitness! I love trying new dishes (thanks Pinterest) and restaurants around Atlanta. I'm also a huge supporter of new, local businesses!

I recently caught wind of an amazing company, Garnish and Gather. Do yourself a favor and visit their site today! You can thank me later. Their vision is to connect people with locally grown food, all while teaching them creative cooking techniques, and making preparing a meal simple. If you're a foodie like myself, you will be obsessed!

Last night, I prepared my first (of many) Garnish and Gather meals. And all I have to say is....YUM-O (cue Rachel Ray)!! From their packaging to their attention to detail, they making cooking a delicious, gourmet meal a breeze! They also include a fun table topic to make dinner an experience. Our dinner topic was, "What region of the U.S. has the best cuisine?" Thoughts? E-mail me at kmboring@gmail.com! Below is a picture of the yummy meal, along with the recipe.

Not only does this make for a great meal for two, but I am already planning on getting my Mom a meal or two for Mother's Day!

FYI - So, you now know they offer meals to prepare in the comfort of your home (sweats not included), but they deliver local, organic groceries, too! Seriously, does this company get any better?! They actually do.
