Grocery lists have taken a hiatus from Al Dente and that is ultimately my real job is the culprit. As you may know, dear reader, I work for the Alzheimer’s Association and fall means that we’re in the thrust of Walk to End Alzheimer’s® season. Last season, I was in Canton for a record-breaking event. This week a rare break week before we ramp up a Sunday to Saturday marathon week that will see us (potentially) raise more than $200,000 in Central New York.
As you may have heard, I have brought back the Chain Challenge for 2015. You can read more about that here. If you are willing and able, go ahead and get that credit card out, click this link, and join the movement to end Alzheimer’s disease.
Dear reader, you may also notice two changes to how we present content here at Al Dente. My mobile visitors may have noticed a newer, friendlier navigation format. I finally got this page mobile friendly. There are some hiccups and slight tweaks I need to make but we are now easier to read on your smartphone. You will also see a new format and style for recipes here. I’m trying a new service called Yummly to better organize them. We’ll see how it goes as this will require me to go back and catalog about 600 or so recipes since we threw open the doors here at Al Dente HQ back in 2011.
One of the things we will be doing here at Al Dente is trying out those meal-delivery services. You’ve seen the advertising for services like Blue Apron and Plated, as have we, and we want to know if they are any good. This week marks our first adventure with them as we try out the lesser-known PeachDish, an Atlanta-based service that draws its inspiration and ingredients from the Southeast. I’m interested in seeing how it goes.
