Kale salad with hard boiled egg sliced

Anyone Ordering From Local Restaurants?

With all restaurants closed by Governor Cuomo for sit down meals, we want to support them by ordering out dinner. On Friday I had a light lunch of a Kale salad with raw pumpkin seeds, shredded cheese and a hard boiled egg. (Nothing too fancy.) We ordered two fish fry for dinner. My husband picked them up and they let two people at a time into the delivery area. Some places are doing curbside pickup. Once home we removed the food using grilling tongs since there could be the virus on the box. New protocol is to wash hands after handling take out boxes and even the daily mail! For me it is not too much of a stretch since I wash my hands a lot before this whole COVID-19 pandemic.

The dinner was delicious and I am not a fan of takeout food since condensation can build up in the box decreasing the food quality. But it was really good! Our local restaurant is also selling a pizza kit in a box. You get the pizza dough, sauce, cheese and pepperoni. A fun experience for families to make their own pizza! Any one else supporting their local restaurants?

On Saturday I disconnected from all media and felt much better for the break. Currently I am revising popular recipes to include more tips, answer questions, adding average cost per serving, and reformatting the instructions. Most recently, I revised and reposted my Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup. It is my go to soup during cold and flu season. Also worked on a few new recipes that I will post in the future. I hope everyone is doing well during this uncertain time!


  1. It looks a nice meal. I would like to support my local places and order a take out, but I use email as my form of contact and all you see is where you are forced to use a phone number. I don’t understand on the phone due to my deafness.
    I have not used take out often, but after last making an attempt for take out paying by card, my order went from watching it bring cooked to cancelled. I wasn’t billed, bit also food I was looking forward to, I did not get.

  2. Have not tried it but sounds like a clever way to adapt to a new normal. Local restaurants have been asked to close to in service but are now offering drive up service. Many bars are even offering drinks to go! 🍺

    1. Same here. You can purchase alcohol if you purchase food. I made a trip to the wine store when the restrictions started. Just in case. But they are considered an essential business. 🙂

  3. We are having pizza tonight from our favorite pizza place. I hope people can continue to order from local restaurants at least once a week, until all this craizness is behind us.
