Meet the Snowed In Box ⛄

Share:

Come in from the cold, there’s stew on. Introducing our celebration of all things hearty and wintery and New England. Meet the Snowed In Box!!! Rumor has it ordering one will guarantee a blizzard 😉

Inspired by our C.O.O (and avid skier dad) Greg’s dream winter weekend, the Snowed In Box is perfect whether you are venturing out to a cabin, exploring the Massachusetts slopes, or getting snowed in at home with your pod. Weekend trips will be different this year. Many of you will be skipping air travel and exploring wintery fun close to home (have you been to these spots yet?) or exploring IMDB’s list of 100 wintery movies (my favorite after this past year: Groundhog Day).

For the first time ever, one of our meal boxes has enough food to take care of ALL meals for a weekend—that means 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches, 2 dinners, 2 snacks, 2 desserts, 2 hot beverages for each person. No work for you, no coffee maker needed, no running out to the store or ski lodge. Just a stove, a knife, basic pots and pans, and a fridge to store the box. If you’re trying out winter camping, you can even store the box in a snowdrift (joking…) Available in 2-person or 4-person sizes (double up if you’ve got a bigger crew).

You’ll need lots of energy whether you’re skiing or making snow angels in the backyard, so for breakfast turn to Tunisian breakfast bowls in spiced tomato sauce with perfect soft-cooked eggs (think shakshuka), and a lavishspread of assorted bagels from one of our favorite local shops with all the fixings – house-made carrot lox, capers, whipped cashew cream cheese, and Backyard Farms tomatoes grown with the power of melting snow.

Later on in the weekend, warm up our stick-to-your-ribs Winter Vegetable Stew featuring PEI potatoes, split peas, and roots from Michael Docter’s frostbitten fields. Chris is making pans of his now-famous Mac & Cheese with a proper Mornay sauce and our favorite Grafton cheddar. Richard is sending us his Margherita Pizza made with long-fermented sourdough that is tastier, better for you, and more filling than your average ‘za. The Winter Farm Salads are coming with Hadley roots, just-picked microgreens and creamy turmeric dressing. And our Potato Cheddar Leek Soup (made by Onètastes decadent by the fire with a hunk of ciabatta and garlic herb butter. Yum.

And since the box is all about snow, we’re tucking in a kit to make something fluffy and white: Maple Fluffernutter Sandwiches with Clover-made marshmallow fluff (remember Clementine’s recipe from quarantine?), Teddie peanut butter, and house pita. Bonus points if you can tell us where the Fluffernutter originated.

One of the best parts about winter is hot drinks. Our Hot Honey Ginger drink is back for this box only! This was a staff favorite from frosty days on the food truck, and is made with fresh ginger and Champlain Valley Apiaries honey. Perfect for fending off any tickles in the throat caused by the heat being on. Adults: remember to pack a thermos when you head out into the snow; because we’ve got coffee covered with Tandem Roaster’s instant coffee packets. Yummy with a Maine Grains brownie.

AVAILABLE THURSDAYS IN JANUARY AND FEBRUARY!

1/14 ❄️ 1/21 ❄️ 1/28 ❄️ 2/4 ❄️ 2/11 ❄️ 2/18 ❄️ 2/25

If you’re planning a winter adventure be sure to order ahead; we’ve been selling out of our specialty boxes and occasionally disappointing folks who arrive too late. Ordering opens up a week in advance. Delivery is free within the I-495 loop, and pickup at the HUB gets you $20 towards your next meal box.

Greg’s kiddos – the inspiration for this Snowed In Box!

The Pizza Friday Box gave us an idea: calzones! Ayr has been making these at his house and texting us photos. They’re big and saucy and so good. Basically a stuffed pizza/turnover situation with origins in 17th century Naples.

Thanks all who joined for the first public food dev meeting after Covid. Phil did a great job pulling it all together. If you’re a customer, farmer, vendor (or Clover staff member) reading this, you are invited to Food Dev! These happen Thursday afternoons at the HUB and they’re where all new food ideas are born. Just make sure to sign up – spots are limited.

House-made carrot lox, hearty vegetable stews with bread and pickles, Tunisian breakfast bowls, a pizza party kit, and a dream of snow, all in one box. Our Snowed In Box is back. This was Greg’s idea back in 2020. He thought it would be cool to make a box that was equally whether eaten after snowboarding or cozied up on the couch watching a movie.

We’ve been getting a lot of requests for the ability to gift a friend Clover Meal Boxes. After a lot of late night tech sessions, we have a way to do this! Yay! I’ve been looking and seeing a few of you have started to discover this feature and are starting to gift away. So cool to see.

If you’re a weekly meal box subscriber, you may have noticed way fewer plastic containers in your deliveries recently.When we started the program, we were in the pandemic, new to this whole home delivery thing, and a big concern was making sure that nothing spilled inside the boxes. So we relied on post-consumer recycled containers (aka plastic deli containers) for a lot of the items.

We’ve been getting back into the merch game. First up: squash shirts. I thought it would be fun to celebrate the diversity of the squash world. Although butternut is probably the squash you see most in the grocery store, there are actually over 100 types of squash, all with their own patterns, colors, and textures.

The Bridgewater is back!! This is probably the most requested sandwich on our menu. Michelle who runs our social media says she reliably gets one message per week asking when it will return. In 2015, Paul and Bryan came up with this sandwich as an homage to the jalapeño poppers at The Charlie Horse, a now-closed tavern in their hometown of Bridgewater, MA.

I love the holidays. I love the lights, I love the traditions, I love ornaments and pine needles all over the floor.  I love the movies (“Muppet Christmas Carol”) and the books (“A Child’s Christmas in Wales.”) I love the good songs, I love the schlocky songs (if you’ve never heard “Suzy Snowflake” or “Dominic the Donkey”, stop reading right now and click through.)

It was inevitable. Our meal box program had to find its way into restaurants at some point. A bunch of you have been asking if we can sell “on demand” meal boxes in our restaurants – for those times when you have last-minute dinner guests or forgot to subscribe by the deadline. So we’ve been easing into the process of combining one part of Clover with another.

Brussels Sprouts are extra sweet this time of year, and King Brussels, in his infinite wisdom, has cooked up a Brussels Week in our meal boxes. Every single subscription box will contain a recipe inspired by brussels! This is the first time we’ve explored a seasonal theme across our entire lineup and we’re excited to dive in.

This was Jane’s last week at Clover. We’re wishing her the best in her next steps (but also not so secretly hoping she comes back!)

Have you ordered your Thanksgiving Box yet? It’s already 50% sold out, so get your orders in this weekend if you can. This box comes with everything from stuffing to porcini-thyme gravy to mashed PEI potatoes to local cranberry sauce to bread to make leftover sandwiches. Most of the items can go from box to oven to table with very minimal prep, and we’ve made multiple sizes whether you’re dining solo or with a crowd.
