What exactly can we order?
Pizza. Pizza. Pizza. Southern Kitchen. Chinese. Pizza. Chinese. Pizza. And more pizza.
I'm waiting for someone to open a carryout restaurant with something other than pizza or fried food. Oh, I know most restaurants have a carryout capability, but most of them are not really set up for it. They dump the food in a carton designed for taking home your leftovers. By the time you get the food home and open it, the bread's soggy, the meat is cold...
No. I'm thinking more along the lines of a place that focuses on producing meals specifically for take-out. I recently ordered a hamburger at a restaurant for carryout. By the time I got home, it was cold. Very soggy. And the components had slid apart in the container so I had to peel it apart to put it back together. Ugh.
We don't order out very often. I mean, really? Pizza or Chinese? That's it. I discount the southern cooking place as everything is fried and my cholesterol really can't deal with that. There used to be a restaurant where I could order a salad, but they went out of business.
Perhaps it's just as well. Food cooked at home from scratch is healthier and you tend to not eat as much. But once in a while...
You just want to order out!

Several months ago I succumbed to the need to have my own blog. I chose to call it Dee’s Dites (deesdites.blogspot.com). The other day DH asked me why that particular name.
Aside from the alliteration, “dites” is French for “tell.” Who can forget—assuming, of course, you’re old enough to remember—the song Ditez Moi from South Pacific?
Anyway, I have a French maiden name and thought deesdites appropriate. In addition, in spite of warnings to show not tell, writers do tell. We tell stories. We tell about people who meet and fall in love. And, hopefully, readers remember what we’ve told them.
Over the next several weeks, I’m going to tell readers how each of my books came about. Check me out at: deesdites.blogspot.com.
Oh! Also check out Book 4 in my Sensuous Seasonings series. It’s called Model Misbehavior and will release April 1, 2011—and no, that’s no April Fools’ Day joke—from eXtasy Books.
