Shelter-in-Place Journal, Day Fifty

Happy Cinco de Mayo! We celebrated by trying a new-to-us Mexican restaurant, La Esquina, about ten minutes from home. They just started using DoorDash, but I ordered the old-fashioned way – by phone – and had to go pick up the food myself. I had two reasons for avoiding DoorDash: giving the restaurant more of my money and being able to get margaritas, which weren’t on the DoorDash menu.

There were a lot of people waiting for their food inside the restaurant (I guess because it’s Cinco de Mayo), but I heard my name being called just as I got to the door and was in and out in just a couple of minutes. The food was very good; the margaritas were only OK. I’d get food from them again – but next time, I might make the drinks at home.

I had to leave our Trivial Zoom session to get the food; while I was waiting, I tried to connect from my phone. It was hard to hear, so I put the phone up to my ear – I am told that the visual was somewhat off-putting!

It was shopping day and the last day of Safeway’s sale on Talenti gelato, so we stocked up – you may not be able to tell in the photo, but we have ten pints in our freezer (some partially used). I’d’ve bought more, but we couldn’t find Belgian Chocolate or Deep Dark Chocolate. Such is life.
