View Full Version : Getting practice boxes

04-28-2009, 07:50 PM
Any thoughts on getting 9x9 boxes to practice with in a small quantity? I can get them at RD and it's not a ton of cash but the box has 200 of them. I feel I would never have a reason to use up even a quarter of them. Hate to store or waste a ton of extra boxes.

We generally offer to buy a few from our local Mexican-food joint that does a lot of carryout, and they gladly give them to us because I swear our kids are supporting them by spending their allowances on carne asada, guacamole and sour cream over french fries.

Thanks Folks.

Diva, carne asada....... a little unkown here back east but wow I do love it (lived in SoCal for a short time). Prices on skirts finaly came down to a civil level so I made some last week.

I took some leftover pulled pork and sauteed some onions and garlic and added some green chilles and garlic, etc. Told my wife it was a variation of carne asada. She kept saying it was barbecue until she tried it on a flour tortilla with some cheese, salsa, sour cream, and refired beans. I told her it was just some smoked mexican pork.....

Ask for one more than you need at a restaurant every time.

I buy them at Sam's. It's still a bunch of them, but I use them up sending food home with everyone after comps and practice cooks.

I like this idea!!! This way I can see how the box fits (using the clear boxes) when it's closed!

Buy the package of 200 and split it with other teams who are looking for the same thing.

My Costco only sells the divided three compartment ones, not the ones like at competitions
