With Christmas almost here, I did a little cooking...okay, maybe a lot of cooking. Thursday (12/17) - We had take out. I felt like it had been a while and was in the mood for something new.

We locked down on March 16th, about 5 days before the Governor issued his Stay-at-Home order for our state. For 70 days, we did not order food for carry-out or delivery.
