This may be an unusual request -
I would like to send some food related gifts with my BF who is going to visit his mother in a small town in Missouri. She is pretty routinized in her eating and doesn't cook much, living alone. She eats mostly frozen dinners. Her favorite food is bbq steak and I know she likes good english muffins b/c she received some that she loves from Kansas City (wegerman's or something).
Some thoughts I had are
1) Special steak sauce-- Does anyone have any favorites I can buy here in SF? I was going to start at Whole Foods
2) Fresh baked almond cookies-- I was going to buy them from Golden Gate Bakery. Are there bettter ones somewhere else?
3) Some Jam--- June Taylor. I'm not sure where I can find these though by Friday. Any leads would be great.
Any other ideas of what would be appreciated in Missouri?
