Eating in the time of corona

With everyone staying in, cooking is bigger than ever. Anne Ryan, founding principal of Greenwich’s Danikar Communications, suggested to us that families can repurpose tonight’s dinner as tomorrow’s breakfast. Indeed, you can make everything from linguine and prosciutto frittatas to stuffing waffles. (And while you’re at it, you might want to check on the seniors in your lives to see if they’re getting enough food and eating well.)

The other hot trend in food is, of course, curbside pickup for takeout. We recently saw this in action when we went to pick up a delicious chicken taco salad bowl at Vega in Hartsdale. Vegamexican.com.

Nor are restaurants the only ones getting in the curbside pickup act. Blossom Flower of White Plains and Yonkers also has this, along with no-contact delivery.

As the flower shop notes on its blog: “The current need for isolation, working from home and putting your social life on hold could lead to poor emotional and physical health, especially among seniors. The stress and anxiety we are all feeling now are detrimental to our health. It’s of vital importance to keep stress and anxiety levels down by eating healthy foods, exercising and getting mood-elevating plants and flowers into our lives.”

And what dresses up your dinner table better than a bouquet of flowers?
