Default On how grocery stores are doing, in the U.S.

I found an MSN slideshow that had a few details for every state.

It was kind of repetitive, but a few things stood out. One was that now that many stores, everywhere, currently do not have to accept cans and bottles, Iowa, for one, has over 1,000 stores that are PETITIONING for that change to become permanent!

And in NYC, the fancier stores have lost a lot of business, since wealthier New Yorkers have fled the city.

And, in Vermont...

"Grocery clerks in Vermont have officially been dubbed €śemergency workers€ť by the state government. The new status gives them access to free child care."

I imagine there are more changes to come in the next year. People
change habits and adapt to a new reality, whatever that may be.

How many will continue to cook instead of heading back to the
restaurants? Not a good time to be in any retail or food business.

I predict that most intelligent people will be cooking at home... even
if opening cans... that's the best way to have control of how clean
one eats... I think restaurnats are and have always been the
filthiest. Eating out is the very best way to contract a life
threatening disease... the vast majority of restaurant food is not
properly handled/prepared... most is too dangerous to be sent to land
fills.

It would be good for the environment if many people continue to work
from home after this crisis.

Nevertheless, the "food is not properly handled/prepared" and "most is
too dangerous to be sent to land fills". You're risking your life
twice a year!

Golden coin?

Hell that place is so sanitized, Popeye can shit on the tables, and
culture swabs show it's sterile.

Normally Popeye don't trust chinks, but the dinks and gooks at
golden coin are perfect.

I am actually cooking far less now. Reason being, I can't find the
ingredients for what I would normally cook. We are having tuna casserole
about every two weeks. I did make that before but maybe once or twice a
year.

We are mainly eating cereal. Lots of cereal. And frozen meals. Why? Those
things are available in the stores here. I don't like this kind of food very
much so my appetite has tanked. Meanwhile, J is going crazy on the cereal! I
didn't even know he liked it. I never bought it before. But I bought some
now because it was available and it has vitamins in it.

Even though restaurants are closed to dining in, many people
continue to order take out food. Sure, it's nice to try
to keep them going but at the same time, WHO knows the
health conditions of the workers inside making that food.
Many workers will come to work sick just to not lose a day's pay.

I'll continue to cook at home even though a McDonald's
cheeseburger is sounding pretty tasty right now. heh

Unless you receive your carryout food and stick it right up
your nose or in your eye, you're vanishingly unlikely to get
COVID-19 from restaurant food. The digestive tract is
inhospitable to coronavirus.

We tried to get take out food one night last week. We had forgotten to
get something out of the freezer in time to thaw for supper. Not a
problem. Call for take-out and help to keep the local restaurants in
business. The two in out little village had phone messages saying they
had decided to close, I then tried the "downtown" restaurants. They
were closed. I finally got a message that said they were open and busy
so leave a message and they would call back. They called back about 5
minutes later and thanked me for the call.... but they closed on
Tuesdays, and it was Tuesday.


There is a Vietnamese and a Thai restaurant in town, but I was not
prepared to try to order by phone. There are serious language barriers
in both places. They seem to have convinced themselves that they speak
English, but it is extremely hard to make yourself understood, and even
harder to understand them. If it's that bad in person I am not ready to
try to order over the phone.

I don't think I have ever been hungry enough that a McDonalds burger
sounded good.

the burgers i make at home are much better. why
wouldn't you make a burger for yourself?

i can't remember the last time i had a McD's
cheeseburger, but it was some years ago. in
between then and now i've had a few burgers from
other places but can pass on all but a few of them
as places i'd rather go. there is a semi-local bar
that does a good job so we get one from them once
in a while.

simple ingredients and simple methods.

i like ground chuck for burgers. make a pretty
big patty (8-12oz) about an inch thick. warm up
the cast iron pan, put a bit of butter on it as it
is warming. i use one notch below medium on my
stove and the large burner.

sprinkle some garlic salt on one side and put it
on the pan to fry. when it starts sputtering i put
the garlic salt on the other side and turn it over.

depending upon the quality of the butcher i adjust
how done i want it. if i've had a good history with
them before i can let it cook until most of the pink
is gone inside and it is still juicy. i put the
cheese on to melt the last minute and turn off the
heat.

since i don't eat beef that often i enjoy this
eaten just as it is without condiments. cheese,
garlic salt and beef. about every month or two
is enough to fit my cravings.

Most times I do make my own burgers at home. Just because
I like McD or Burger King whoppers, don't read that
as that's all I eat. They offer a different taste
and I'll buy some maybe once every 4 months or so.

> i can't remember the last time i had a McD's

I only reason I said McD cheeseburger is because
that's what Bruce always says. Their hamburgers
are better than the cheeseburgers...too much cheese
on a small patty.

I DO like my own better with all the works. Some
bars serve good ones too. The fast food burgers just
offer a different taste that I like occasionally.
Don't eat them often but I do love them when I do.

I always make my own burgers from meat I grind myself, I never buy
preground mystery meat. I admit to trying a burger at the golden
arches one time and couldn't eat more than two bites... that was in CA
when it cost 19˘, 1962.

In areas practicing social distancing, the restaurants will be a major vector for spreading covid-19. One should be very afraid of ordering food take out.

I don't see why take out food should be a problem so long as the staff
are covid free and taking precautions. The main problem with
restaurants is the close quarters and close contact with large numbers
of people.


On a related note I was in a grocery store yesterday to get some fresh
fruit and vegetables. I noted that the woman who was stocking the
cucumbers was wearing gloves. Then I happened to notice her cought

The problem is that we don't know if someone is covid 19 free or not. We don't know how many people have it. We can't even give an accurate count on how many it's killed. This virus is a most magnificent, beautiful, and perfectly-realized, creature.
