Yes, I admit it. I was suckered in by a man who rang my doorbell. Was I interested in buying some meat? Some of his customers were unavailable and he did not want to haul the meat back to Santa Ana for restocking. I knew it was a sales come-on, but when he opened the box and showed me the lovely steaks, and in his Russian accent offered a box of seafood for no extra charge...yes, I caved in.
Imagine my panic with the refrigerator situation. But fortunately the freezer was not affected and kept my lovely meat safe.
We've had, in no particular order: Coquilles St. Jacques* (scallops), Shrimp Chowder*, Surf-n-Turf (crabcakes and sirloin), NY strip steaks, bacon wrapped filets, and stuffed flounder. And a bunch of hamburgers.
*These required actual recipes!!!
I'm just loving this not-have-to-go-shopping thing. And the men are loving the food.
So? Did I overpay a little? Maybe. Is everyone well fed and happy? Yes. Net result: priceless.
