In the air there is a feeling of Christmas, isn’t there? We certainly are entering the holiday season, and if you’re like me, you’re probably juggling lots of year-end projects, shopping, wrapping, decorating, baking and planning for holiday get-togethers; the expected and unexpected family and friends who will be popping by. While I prefer to have a window to plan my hosted events, as my husband reminds me, life is full of wonderful spontaneous moments to enjoy – especially during the holiday season.
In cases where there are surprise visitors, or even when there’s a visit planned but there’s too much on-the-go, I need an easy button! For me, that’s Skip The Dishes. Let me tell you, that little food ordering app can come in real handy. Skip The Dishes allows you to order meals from some of your favourite local restaurants. Here in Ottawa, you can order from delicious and well-loved places like the Elgin Street Diner, Sushi Village, and Freshii, to name a few.
Whether you’re preparing for an awesome gathering or sliding into a cozy holiday hangout, Skip The Dishes is a great option to get a scrumptious, satisfying meal from one of your favourite local restaurants delivered right to your home. I recently ordered dinner from Sushi Village using Skip The Dishes which was a welcomed break from cooking. The order was prompt and hot when we got it and hit the spot! In fact, there may be a few spontaneous orders this month, as we focus on completing our year end work, take time to wrap all the Christmas presents and of course, watch at least twenty of my favourite holiday movies. And what goes better with a Christmas movie marathon than takeout!
Even though I love cooking and planning dinners and parties, there are some days on which I’d rather just chill out with my family and friends instead of prepping, cooking and cleaning in the kitchen – when I feel like that, I’m thankful there is a quick solution that still allows me to host with great food!
