Re: ordering food over the internet
I almost always host holiday parties, so my brother decided to contribute by ordering the turkey, ham, or barbecue online through Dave (Dale?) Rosengarten's newsletter that he subscribes to. Personally, I'd prefer to pick out my own (I loved the Amish organic turkeys we used to order through Earth Fare, a small Southern organic grocery chain), but he does save us some bucks and is trying to be nice, so I just say, "Thanks, bro!" And DH still gets to show off his masterful turkey roasting skills. hmmm...maybe I'll start a Thanksgiving thread.
You can't always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you might find you get what you need.
