chocolate | Jan 17, 200804:26 AM

Sending a care package to my brother for his b-day but need some help on what to include. Read and re-read all the wonderful posts about this place and came to the conclusion, it's hard to go wrong with about anything from here because its all good. But still, if you could add any suggestions would greatly appreciate it. (My sister-in-law does not like lox so basically I'm sending the gift just for my brother...my dad is with them now (age 89-doesn't eat that much) and may eat a few slices of the gaspa nova but can't see him eating any of the smoked lox) Here's what I've got so far.....
........1/4lb gaspa nova
.........1/4lb pastrami lox
........1/4lb scottish salmon
........1/2lb chive cream chz
........8 bialeys and 4 bagels (Bialeys are such a treat for them-can't get them
where they live)
........1/4lb sable
........1/2lb whitefish salmon salad
..........1/2lb chopped liver
...........1lb rugela for my sister-in-law

Am I missing anything and does the amounts of salmon seem right or do you recommend just sending a taste of the scottish salmon/ pastrami lox (maybe 1/8lb of each and sticking with a little more of the gaspa) Also is the sturgeon a better bet then the sable......Well once again... TIA for all your help
