Why carry out? You see, I LOVE to cook. I enjoy the process of putting meals together for my family and knowing what I am putting into them. On a normal day when being quarantined isn’t on my mind, I am not cooking full meals three times a day, but being home 24/7, working full time (both in and out of the home because I’m an essential employee) and trying to feed my four little ones who are constantly starving has taken some of my cooking joy away.
Thankfully there are several businesses open for curbside/carry out that can give me a break from cooking and allow me to support others who maybe are struggling during this unprecedented time.
