Have Pies? Will Travel!

 

We have a funny little Thanksgiving Eve tradition.

Every year we order 2 Domino’s Pizzas on Thanksgiving Eve.

Why? So I have BOXES to carry my pies in on Thanksgiving!! LOL

Pizza boxes are the perfect size for me to carry my pies to my sister-in-laws house!

 

Try it!!

EDITED to add a picture of my pies in the boxes!
We were in a hurry to leave and the sun was beating in the kitchen, so I only had a quick second for a picture, it’s not the best, but you can see how great this works!

    Ha! Ok, that is awesome. Never would’ve thought of that! The pizza? Yes. Using them for your thanksgiving pies? No! Genius, I say!

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    Lisa, we remove the pizza the night before, I wipe the boxes out and leave them sit open until time to transfer the pies – no smell of pizza!!

    Great idea but can I give you a tip to add to your tip? I’m a “presentation is everything” kind of girl so . . .unfold those boxes, flip over and refold with the print on the inside. Super easy and so much better looking. Yes, I have done this on USPS boxes too. If you REALLY wanna be like me, draw or rubber stamp the plain brown background.
