Take the Stress Out Of Holiday Meals With Takeaway

Food

Sometimes, you’re just too darn tired from clearing the path into the woods, chopping the tree, stringing the lights, making the ornaments, crafting the artisanal gifts, thinking about who is gluten free, who is vegan and who has nut allergies. Sometimes you just don’t want to cook the holiday dinner. Don’t worry, we have lots of mouth-watering local take-away options.

Turkey, Crackly As A Potato Chip

Food

 It’s back. Thanksgiving. That holiday least burdened by guilt, longing, sorrow and disappointment. It’s about food. Just food. There’s no worry about measuring up, pleasing people you love and satisfying people you like with perfect presents. It’s easy. There’s just food. Lots of it.

Heide Hendricks, who clearly has a knack for cultivating comfortable and welcoming surroundings, will warmly greet you with a sunny smile. Spend a moment and you’ll see there is much more to this pop-up shop than just great home furnishings.

Salt Of The Earth And Table

Food

Paul Noth’s cartoon in a recent New Yorker magazine had a wise man on a mountaintop telling a beseeching climber, “The meaning of existence is this thirty-two-dollar jar of salt.”
Time was when salt was traded for gold, slaves and sugar. Now it’s traded for dinner party marks.
