We are noticing a lot of discussion on Social Media about ordering dinner in for Christmas. Is this something you are considering? The comments we are seeing include how difficult it is going to be to get together this holiday, but we can still support local business.

Ritz Catering has a catering menu just for Christmas. Their meals are individually packaged and delivered to your door. There are four categories to choose from. There is Cold Christmas Sandwich Boxed Lunch, Hot Christmas Sandwich Boxed Lunch, Traditional Hot Christmas Lunch or Dinner, and the Festive Hot Christmas Lunch or Dinner. The Festive Hot Christmas Lunch or Dinner has turkey with all the trimmings, honey baked ham, veggies, mashed potatoes, buns, and fresh-baked shortbread cookies. Mmmm. I love shortbread cookies.
