White Glove Grazing and some Summer Hits from our Menu

Folks it’s going to be a while before we’re able to socialize like we used to.  Just get used to it.  That’s NO REASON you can’t enjoy close friends at your house and host a get together without worrying about the food and service.   Nor is it a reason for your board meeting to have to be by ZOOM (or whatever, think “Kleenex” here).  Space yourselves, wear a mask to and from your seat, and let me do the serving with my mask and gloves on!  Still a “buffet” but you touch nothing.  And nobody, as you well know, touches my food but me so it’ll be handed to you in pristine condition and you can enjoy worry free!!
Though “the boxed lunch” remains “banished”, I am finding creative ways to use compostable boxes for a Charcuterie Party coming up – each box comes with 2 cheese offerings, 2 cured meats, grapes, mixed olives, our homemade  Roasted Garlic & Preserved Lemon Hummus with our homemade Olive Oil and Sea Salt Crostini.  So if this idea interests you it’s now available – give me a shout!  It’s not exactly the visual delight you’re seeing before you, but all of the yummyness is there!

Click this MENU to check out Lula’s offerings for pickup or delivery 8/5.  We’ve lightened things up a bit in the face of HEAT and HUMIDITY.   Our Salmon & Goat Cheese Quiche (pic below) is receiving rave reviews, and you can have it gluten free if you want!   New on the menu this week is our fantastic chilled Spinach and Rice Salad with our Soy Vinaigrette.  You can have as is (crumbled bacon), and you can add Herbed Chicken or Shrimp if you’d like.

With your help Lula’s has been able to nourish our battlefront at St. Elizabeth Hospital, Covington Police Department, Welcome House, DCCH Center for Children and Families, Women’s Crisis Center, Master Provisions, and we will continue to support our first responders and community in any way we can.   I could not be more proud of how our region has stepped up in courage and in love.  WITH love, Lula!

Introducing “White Glove Grazing” – a fun get together with all health and safety measures in place.  We’ll wear masks and gloves and keep everything continuously sterilized while you safely enjoy each other’s company – at home or in the office!  No more need to fear an office luncheon – we’ll do the serving so all you touch is your own plate.  I’m too much of a computer idiot to be able to superimpose a mask and gloves on this image but use your imagination!  The JOY will still be WITH YOU!!

Covid 19 and our Food Supply

If you’ve been wondering about why/how your grocery store is operating and behaving right now…or if you’ve been wondering about how safe your food is, or how safe a restaurant’s food is, OR, if you’ve been wondering about when or if your money OR your food supply will dry up and how you will handle it, you can educate yourself a bit here .

And…to take your mind off of the sobering information in the article, please enjoy these pretty pictures of a July 4th Grillout!

Eco Info Part 5 of 6! – BPA

With “the  covid” front and center I’ve been publishing newsletters with menus for the week instead of the “tips and tidbits” from the kitchen I so love to share – so I’m getting back to that – Part 5 of Eco Info!!  BPA stands for Bisphenol-A, which is in ALOT of plastic.  BPA has harmful effects on humans, and containers with BPA that have been exposed to heat can leach toxic plasticizers into foods and beverages.

The production of BPA can also leach chemicals into soil and water, contaminating the crops we grow and the food we eat.  SOOooooo…make SURE any plastic you buy or any food IN plastic that you buy is marked BPA FREE.  Even a water bottle sitting in your car on a warm day can leach BPA into the water.  Another good reason to quit buying disposable bottled water. 🙂  Just my two cents worth!!  Lula LOVES you and doesn’t want you to get sick!!  If you missed installments 1-4 of ECO INFO, click HERE!
