Memorial Day evokes images of cookouts on the patio…smoke blowing in your face…fly swatter in hand guarding a plate of just cooked hot dogs and hamburgers. The Clinking of beer bottles, a neglected bowl of potato salad lovingly prepared by one of your guests, and soft serve cones from a truck at the parade round off the occasion. But there are different approaches that can make the Memorial Day experience just as satisfying and less hands-on. Many of us live in condos or apartments that don’t allow grills. Some of us are sick, disabled, or just too darn lazy to plan and cook up a spread.
Allmenus.com gives you an easy way out. I know what you’re thinking, take –out is anathema to this rite of summer. Ordering in is usually the province of Chinese or pizza on the fly…when your schedule is too hectic and food is an afterthought. But this is where allmenus.com’s extensive network featuring over 250,000 menus in more than 200 local markets gives you direct online ordering access to your neighborhood
In my case, I wanted the traditional hot and spicy BBQ…cookout food…only without the grill and messy cleanup. Luckily allmenus.com featured my local Wings Over franchise. They had just what I needed with half and full racks of tender St. Louis ribs marinated for at least 24 hours, slow cooked for a half day, and then finished off on the grill with a wide selection of BBQ sauces. And of course the namesake wings with 23 different sauces and rubs ranging from Jamaican Jerk to Cajun Teriyaki. The only thing missing is micro brew keg delivery but I’ll be patient on this one….
