Missing a restaurant sit down

The COVID-19 pandemic has hit nearly every segment of people’s lives. We’ve been in isolation for over a month. Other than a very few times when we took a drive, we have been at home.

American comfort food

So many things that we used to take for granted are no longer available to do. Our favorite dinner theater is closed. We were going to a dinner and show this Saturday. Not now. The casino we usually enjoyed is closed. Even mundane shopping trips are out for us. Our son is doing that for us.

But we miss being able to have a nice restaurant meal.

Healthy food

Hmmm………real Mexican fare







It’s funny how you adjust to the self isolation thing. Keeping up with the news is a daily thing. Watching movies and TV series, surfing the net, reading blogs all are part of the daily routine. But dang, it sure would be nice to one evening decide if we want Mexican, Chinese, American or something else and just go. Nope, carry out or delivery is not the same as getting out.

  1. I agree. My favourite date nights are when my husband and I go out for a meal. We love to sit and be served and relax and eat a delicious meal – all with no kids to interrupt us! Certainly will miss visiting restaurants while this is going on.


  2. Everything closed here in Dublin – there’s going to be such a run on pubs and restaurants when we get past this. Takeaways and deliveries still operating for the moment but its just not the same. First thing … our local pub for a roast beef carvery lunch… then a steakhouse. Tom just wants a coffee shop with the biggest slice of cream cake they have.

    Stay safe everyone. XXXMarie
