It took a global pandemic to mail out Christmas cards.
We’ve never sent them in my life – I have friends who send Christmas cards and I have what I call Christmas card friends – friends who I’ve barely spoken with in years but send a Christmas card every year.
This year, I too, am a Christmas card friend.
Only during a pandemic have I found organizing and writing Christmas cards after work fun . . . a relief, even.
First things first, LOOK AT THIS MUG.
For some reason, you haven’t seen Schitt’s Creek, watch it now.
I’ll always remember the first time I tried Remix’s popcorn.
Last winter, before we had any inkling a global pandemic was looming, we hosted a fondue party. It’s tradition for Jake’s side of the family each New Year.
We gather around bubbling pots of oil cooking fondue forks loaded with steak, shrimp, potstickers, cocktail weenies, and vegetables dipping them into a myriad of sauces. Sometimes you grab someone else’s fork. Maybe someone double-dips into one of the community sauce bowls. Shrug.
Feels like a lifetime ago.

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:
Somehow I forgot I lived near an old fashioned candy shop.
Regina’s Fine Chocolates is actually a 94 year -old candy shop that’s still owned by the same family.
I’ve taken her for granted.
Before the pandemic, I’d only visited Regina’s to buy treats for other people, but never myself.
That was a mistake.
I ate this meal five days in a row.
If there was more, I would have eaten it for six.
Stacy’s recent blog post on take-out recommendations inspired me to visit Bolé Ethiopian Cuisine located near the Super Target in Midway area of St. Paul, MN.
After reading her post I wanted to order the Super Veggie Sampler, too.
