cats, coronavirus, COVID-19, dining, dinner, pandemic, restaurants
I miss those monthly gatherings with friends in one of our favourite restaurants, whether in small groups or as a one-on-one birthday lunch celebration.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, I have been cooking at home, preparing meals for family or just eating by myself while the cat looks on.
I doubt I will visit a restaurant until this pandemic has passed and we have a vaccine. I feel for the many people in food services affected by restaurant closures and losing their income, but I also have no desire to order for delivery, even from my favourite pizza joint. It’s not worth the risk of transmission.
How about you? What are your thoughts about restaurant dining or ordering take out again?
Thanks for dropping by.
Presenting a blog entry from another realm and era, a tale about dining out with friends, tolerating sub-par service, and a reminder of the importance to be kind.
Fast-forward a few months… With one Millennial offspring staying the winter, we still cook many of our meals at home but we have recently started ordering in or doing walking-distance takeout with a couple of our favourite food services. It makes for a special Friday night tradition 🙂

I have dine in with my fiance, using all the precautions available, but it does not feel the same yet. Hopefully if there is a vaccine the fun will return.
In my haste and sweaty state before posting this, I neglected another important consideration: packaging waste with takeout and delivery. T
I think I would go to a patio to eat now. Did not order anything until a few weeks ago and it has proved to be okay! 🤨

Thanks, Terri. I have always been a picky patio customer anyway, not wanting to be in the sun, wary of particles and bugs blowing into my food 😀
