My Foodie Friends…this newsletter will be short and sweet – mostly because I’m exhausted. I am SOLD OUT! For those of you who missed out on Lula’s fabulous Christmas Dinner Menu, there’s always next year. I am incredibly grateful for your support and love, and hope to feed you SOON in the new year. And if you didn’t order entrees for THIS week – the pic to the left is our Maple Bourbon Salmon with Creole Roasted Butternut Squash and Sauteed Power Greens. Further down the page, let your eyes make your mouth water with our Pumpkin Penne & Italian Sausage entree.. You also got excited about our Caesar Salad (those of you who have had my dressing KNOW it’s the best on the planet) so I think I’ll offer salads more often in the new year.
If you’re new to the newsletter, and would like to see the types of menus I offer weekly, click here to see this week’s in its entirety. Something similar (but different!) will pop into your inbox on January 6.
We are traveling high and low, far and wide delivering our gift offerings that you chose for your loved ones and clients. The overwhelming favorite was indeed Bourbon Pecan Bark (Christmas Crack). I certainly feel like we did our part to help the Fair Trade chocolate, sugar, and pecan markets! And I cannot thank my fabulous husband Gordon enough for laboring over the smoker – this batch of our Bourbon Smoked Salmon with Lula’s Seafood Love Rub was the BEST EVER. The salmon melts in your mouth. What’s left for you? Well…
For last minute shoppers, our Gift Certificate lets your loved ones or clients choose the food they want for delivery when THEY want, and you choose the amount. They can use it for catering (yes we WILL get back to it!) or Family Meal pickup or delivery. We mail the pretty holiday themed certificate out for you, or you can deliver it yourself. The sky’s the limit starting at $25.00. And don’t forget it’s only me touching the food so it’ll be handed to you or your loved ones and clients in pristine condition to be enjoyed worry free. Here’s hoping with the coming new year, with the passage of each day, we feel safer and more love than ever before!
We’ll be bringing you more yummy tummy filling entrees in the new year; until then, let your mind taste this “kicky” Pumpkin Penne with Italian Sausage, Sage and Asiago.
Until then, you can purchase a Lula’s Gift Certificate for Family Meal Delivery OR Catering at a later date to be mailed or emailed in any denomination you want. Email or call and we’ll take care of it – right down to mailing. Click here to visit our website!
I am writing this laying in bed in a loft in the Red River Gorge. It is Gordon’s little gift to us after a totally WOW week for me. We packed up some leftover stuffing and a few other goodies and headed off to nature, whereupon it immediately began to rain cats and dogs. The good news is we woke up to something we had always dreamed of doing – winter in the gorge. The snow is falling and it is sticking! Good luck to us getting down the winding hill tomorrow. We’ll cross that bridge (literally) when we get to it. If you’d like to mimic my Leftover Stuffing Recipe, see the section below for a pic and a link.. Here is a picture of our Whole Grain Turkey Tetrazzini (I’ve been told it’s the best ever tasted!), which is on the menu this week. Our Pumpkin Penne with Italian Sausage is also a fave hit in the fall – it’s very savory and warms you from your toes up. Our Tarragon Turkey Soup is featured in our Brain Health Class and is SO delicious I just know it’ll make you smarter when you order it this week! It’s gluten free with Forbidden and Wild rices, and loaded with veggies.
For the HOLIDAYS, this year will be different from any other and you won’t be partying with your co-workers, clients or loved ones like you’re used to. Lula’s can HELP! Send some Holiday LOVE from Lula’s to show you care. Our Gift Certificate lets them choose the food they want for delivery when THEY want, and you choose the amount. Our Holiday Gift MENU does not disappoint, and if you scroll down the menu you’ll see our Christmas Menus to pre order from NOW!. Our House Smoked Bourbon King Salmon Boxes are delicious. A 4.5-5 oz portion with Lula’s Black Bread, Secret Awesomesauce, Cucumbers, Lemon, and Tomato-Caper-Red Onion Brunoise is all boxed up and delivered to your recipient’s door. We’re also offering a jazzed up version of our Charcuterie Box, including Toasted Marconas and Homemade Preserves, as well as our Bourbon Pecan Bark (Christmas CRACK!) in 8oz bags or 1# tins. We deliver within a 50 mile radius, and we’re taking orders now. Our supply won’t last – I beg of you, give me plenty of notice! Don’t forget it’s only me touching the food so it’ll be handed to you or your loved ones and clients in pristine condition to be enjoyed worry free. We’ll help you safely celebrate during this pandemic!
