It finally happened.


I swear I’ve cooked more meals in the last two months than I have in the previous six.

Virus quarantining means a lack of many things, but around here? A full plate isn’t one of them.

I never used to cook or eat breakfast. Now it’s blueberry banana pancakes and thick cut bacon.

I used to eat a light lunch. Now it’s cream of turkey and wild rice soup, a chicken Caesar wrap and a chocolate chip cannoli.

Four nights a week we used to have salad. Now it’s more likely to be a pot roast dinner with all the fixings.



We may not do much else, but damn it… we eat.

Which means I’m getting tired of cooking and craving some decent take out.

Our last two attempts were abysmal failures but we finally got lucky at a little local restaurant in the next town I never paid much attention to before.



Delectable, juicy, and dripping with sauce… these sweet and spicy Thai wings were pure ambrosia. I admit to sharing with the husband…. but only grudgingly.



There was also a stellar pizza called the Mainer. Garlic butter brushed crust with Italian sausage, bacon, onion, peppers, mushroom and olives.

I was thrilled.

I was ecstatic.

I may have drooled.

So yes, I’m going to go out on a limb here and say we’ll probably be repeating the process.

  1. Glad you connected with some delicious takeout! We have been doing (more than) our fair share of eating over here as well. I’ve made random things I would never have considered cooking such as homemade apple sauce and cloud eggs (not eaten together, mind you) and the more traditional stews, roasts, and stir-fry of different varieties. I miss mindless meals of tacos on Tuesdays and brunching over the weekend.

      1. That’s when Gary brings takeout. We took pizza to his mom’s on Saturday night and sandwich fixin’s for a picnic on Sunday with my parents, daughter and her children at a park. Parents celebrated 65 years on Friday.

  2. Salad four nights a week? Damn, I thought I was doing good with two nights a week. Even that has taken a big hit as I’ve gotten to know a group of Uber Eats drivers lately.
