During the summer, I spend so much time shuttling food outdoors (and we pretty much eat every meal outside when possible), that I really do fantasize about wearing roller skates to get the job done. It seems that none of my trays are big enough (in fact I don’t think one exists that is) to carry the large number of plates with sausages, sandwiches, or fill-in-the-blank grill outside. And then it hit me: a vision of those red baskets that you get at old-school hotdog and hamburger stands. They’re not quite disposable like paper plates, and somehow capture the spirit of the handheld summer food experience. I looked online and found some on the Crate & Barrel website. I’m sure there are fancier versions, but there is something totally nostalgic and great (if a little trashy) about these with a sheet of wax paper—especially when paired with a nice white sausage, a few spears of grilled asparagus, and a glass of Sancerre.
