Eating Local with Mac and Walt’s for Dinner

Mac and Walts for Dinner

We cannot pick up our weekly grocery order until tomorrow so instead we decided to try curbside pick up at Mac and Walt’s. We love their burgers and were interested to see their curbside setup.

Mac and Walt’s knows how to do curbside really well. They have all of their parking spots numbered and at each spot there is a sign that tells you the number to call upon arrival. I called, let them know that I would pop the trunk and the food was out and ready within two minutes. I was off and back home in less than 10 minutes, that means hot fries. I got the bacon cheeseburger and Allison the Walt burger. The kids got sliders and we split some fries and onion rings. We also split some of the desserts.

Mac and Walt’s partners with a local bakery called Flaky Crust Pies and they put up on Instagram that tonight they were carrying a mixed berry crumble. We got that and an apple pie slice and a cream cheese brownie. It was all delicious. It was also nice to eat in the back yard and enjoy being out there. We can do that now because our terrible neighbors are gone and are not coming back! I am so happy about that. We’ll be doing much more time outside this Summer and Fall.

We All Need a Little Smile

Honey Dew Donuts

I did not go for donuts yesterday for Donut Fridays with the family. I didn’t go because someone in the house decided that he was having a bowl of Nutella, fluff and peanuts for breakfast. So, I did not go for donuts yesterday morning. I went this morning to surprise Allison with a coffee and the kids with donuts.

Our local Honey Dew was open for walk ins and so I went in to see what they had and they had these very cute smiley face donuts. I figured that with everything happening in the world right now we need a smile.

I tried to sleep and made it till about 1:30pm. Then I was up. I went to Twitter and took a look to see if things were on track for the Space X Crew Dragon launch that had been rescheduled from earlier this week. It looked like a go so I tried to get back to sleep but ended up staying awake. So, we watched the launch all together in our bed. I held my breath watching because of memories of the Challenger and Columbia. I didn’t want to see anything like that happening on a good day let alone during a global pandemic and civil unrest. Plus, I in no way wanted the kids to see something like that live. So I held my breath until the astronauts made it into the outer atmosphere. I don’t think it had as much impact on the kids since they have seen movies like Star Wars and Guardians of the Galaxy and space travel is almost normal for them. It wasn’t like that for me when I was growing up. The amount of movies and tv shows that I have seen since I was a kid that involve space travel is staggering. So, I can just imagine how many space based shows and movies the kids will see.
