We’re Trying Something New for Delivery this Week! Menu #12

What a busy, wonderful, stormy, sultry week!   During a hail storm we BBQ’d some Tico (Costa Rican) chicken – if you think you’d like some of this let me know and I’ll put it on the menu.   I whip up a Bleu Cheese or Ranch dressing to go with it – just trust me!!  I have been asked several times about service for 4 so I’m doing it.  I’m not really set up with perfect disposables (as most of you know) – I don’t believe in disposables if it can be helped, and I’ll take back any aluminum you wish to give me!  But we can make do with what I have if you just want service for 4 on the entrees.

Click this MENU to check out Lula’s other offerings this week. We’re lightening things up in the face of HEAT and HUMIDITY.  Our Zucchini Cilantro Soup is always a big hit – creamy with tangy yogurt – you can serve it cold for a wow factor if you want!  It won’t look like the picture below, but again, it will TASTE like the picture below (minus the Ancho Shrimp garnish!)  We also are offering Piccata‘s in two forms, and refreshing Truffled Egg Salad.   If your office or your family needs sustenance, you can’t get it from a safer place.  I want to thank YOU from the bottom of my heart for giving me something tangible to labor over and get my zen on again this week!!
Don’t forget, it’s only me folks, THESE TWO HANDS along with my 90% isopropyl alcohol, and my bleach…and if you want, my mask, and my gloves too!  If you’re wondering how you can help battle this pandemic, don’t worry – I’m helping for you – every time you order a portion of the proceeds goes to Charity – we’re feeding the volunteers at Master Provisions this week.  With, in, and for love – Lula!

Eco Info Part 4 of 6! – Compostable

Compostable materials disintegrate into natural elements in a compost environment, and make OUTSTANDING soil mixer for your garden.   Commercial composting facilities use ideal amounts of sunlight, temperature, and moisture to create an environment that rapidly breaks down materials.   My dad and mom were the original composters.  We had a huge area behind our “cottage” in the back yard, with  3 walls, and daddy would stir it around every few days (I’m talking a mound so big kids couldn’t climb it).  On our kitchen counter, on a paper towel, were ALWAYS eggshells, banana peels etc to get dumped every day in that compost heap.  Then daddy would take the finished compost and use it in our huge garden, where we had fresh vegetables growing 9 months out of the year.

When I was about 30 or so, I found a cute ceramic countertop compost “bin” for their kitchen and it was a Christmas present.  Probably the best thing I ever got them – they loved it.  No more uglies on the counter!  When they came down in price I bought stainless ones for practically the whole family.  Above is a picture of Lula’s Catering ‘s Compost Bin.

Always check the materials your composting facility accepts before sending your waste.  Go green by requesting a composting bin from your local facility – some places provide them for free!

Lula’s Mother’s Day Delivery (or Pick Up!) Menu Covid Week 8

Folks just as we’ve settled into a routine I’m going to SHAKE IT UP.  Since the menu for next week is geared more towards Mother’s day, I’m going to ask that you allow delivery on FRIDAY, and pick up on SATURDAY so things will be fresh and beautiful for SUNDAY.  One of my Mother’s Day offerings is my Cocoa-Coffee Rubbed Flat Iron Steak, adorned as you see it here with Caramelized Onion & Gorgonzola Marmalade and a Balsamic Reduction. Hubby wants me to sell the rub – you let me know what YOU think! I will place the steak on top of Lula’s fabulous Cream Cheese & Horseradish Smashed Potatoes, so naturally it won’t look as MOD as this picture!  Click this MENU to check out other new dishes for next week. If your office or your family needs sustenance, you can’t get it from a safer place.  I want to thank YOU from the bottom of my heart for giving me something tangible to labor over and get my zen on again this week!!  Zen is a wonderful thing but I’ve been working really HARD…and Gordon has a week off after Mother’s Day.  I’m going to take some much needed time off as well.  I will be back with other menu offerings for delivery on 5/26, and pickup on 5/27 – back to the regular schedule.

Don’t forget, it’s only me folks, THESE TWO HANDS along with my 90% isopropyl alcohol, and my bleach…and if you want, my mask, and my gloves too!  If you’re wondering how you can help battle this pandemic, don’t worry – I’m helping for you – every time you order a portion of the proceeds goes to families in need!   With, in, and for love – Lula!
