Neighborhood Services in Dallas: Hot Bird To Go

chick1My mom is under the weather so yesterday I called Neighborhood Services and ordered one of their Hot Bird To Go dinners. I picked it up at 5:30 p.m. and headed over to her house with a bottle of wine and some good cheer. Good heavens, there was enough food for six people. The canvas bag was filled with a whole (huge) roasted chicken, two sides (rabe sautéed with red peppers and bacon and oven roasted herb potatoes), a ginormous mixed salad with Granny Smith apples and poached onions, and a 12-inch baguette slathered with melted butter and of clumps of softly sautéed garlic cloves.

chick2The meal was around $37 bucks and I think if you take the canvas bag back, you get $5 off your next purchase. Please call ahead to order. Warning: could be habit forming. 5027 W. Lovers Ln. 214-350-5027.
