Last week I wrote about three local restaurants offering non fast-food meals through drive-thrus.
This week it’s all about delivery.
Most foods are available for delivery due to restaurant delivery services. What’s special about these three options is that the restaurants deliver in-house. This means the full cost of the meal, delivery fee, and tip go right to the restaurant’s employees.
Here are three local restaurants that we love to support that offer home delivery services:
If I could only take one seasoning with me into the apocalypse. . . the end of the world. . . a camping trip, or, well, just my kitchen, it would be a shaker of Lawry’s Seasoned Salt.
My version of the Book of Eli would end with Denzel taking a bottle of Lawry’s to Alcatraz and reciting the secret blend of spices.
With our household of two, we’ve never bought bulk of much. We were Costco members for a couple years. The quality of the products are great, but when our membership expired we didn’t rush to renew it. Usually I just buy a new thing when we run out of the old one. Now, I have a back-up for things like dish soap and toothpaste.
Around here, the stores seem to be stocked ok, especially the smaller neighborhood stores. I’m happy to see them limit items like toilet paper and bags of rice. Don’t be the asshole that hoards things when people need them now.
Currently, I subscribe to two beauty boxes per month; Sephora Play! ($10) and Boxycharm’s base box ($25).
I think of beauty boxes like gambling – My limit is $35 per month. I fully understand I could get some really good products and some really crappy ones. Fortunately, my coworkers, friends, and family members enjoy the items I pass along. I love sharing so it’s a win-win.
My fake meat bar is set low.
With the exception of mock duck and tofu, my criteria for fake meat products is “Does this taste gross?” No?! Then I guess I like you, I think.
Jake recently got a charcoal grill. We’ve been having a lot of fun grilling on the weekends. He chose an assortment of turkey burgers and brats from Costco. I decided to try grilling Beyond Burgers, a hyped-up vegetarian meat substitute free from soy or gluten and high in protein.
Dietician Abby Langer wrote a recent post about Beyond Meat that caught my eye. She discusses whether or not it’s a “healthy” choice and examines the ingredients, some of which include pea protein, canola oil, coconut oil, rice protein, mung bean protein and methylcellulose (a soluble fiber).
The closest grocery store to us that sells them is Lunds & Byerlys. I knew this product cost more than real meat, but was a little taken a back at the price – inside of the package ($5.99) which I would normally expect to contain a pound of ground beef held two little patties.
I think you’re supposed to save money shopping at Costco. We’re definitely not.
In theory we should be saving money, buying bulk laundry detergent, paper towels, and eggs at these fantastic prices. It’s just, well, all of that other stuff.
An impulse buy at Costco looks like this:
Not one box of macaroni and cheese, but TWELVE.
Sometimes an impulse buy will get you 12 chicken patty pita sandwiches you find you don’t actually want to eat more than two of. Other times you find a winner that you re-purchase time and again.
