We all know about Fresh Direct’s food delivery.  You basically go online, shop and set up a delivery date with a time slot. It’s great, but you may not be able to get that time slot or you are looking to make a decision for the day.  Here comes their new idea called Food Kick, a Fresh Direct “sister” that is mainly an “app” thing. 

Go to the app and see what’s special for the day, much of which has prepped products so that you have the accompaniments as well and not having to cook anything from scratch.  Each day gives a different feature.  For instance you have Margarita Monday where you get the liqueur, mixer and recipe.  Add in a taco dinner kit which includes: yellow corn tortillas, rosemary grilled chicken breast, homemade salsa verde, avocados, lime and cilantro. 

There is a $20 minimum. Delivery by their SideKicks are from 6 am to 12 midnight, Monday through Sunday.  At present the delivery zones are in Brooklyn and Long Island City.  Hey, if you’re not in the area being serviced you can go visit a friend in the area that is and set up dinner!
To give you a better idea, I did a “shopping” for the day beginning with breakfast.  Stumptown Cold Brew coffee (goes great with Ronnybrook Farms half and half).  Coleman Natural Hickory Smoked Bacon. Handsome Brook Farms Organic Eggs.  Having ordered avocados as part of my dinner meal, I used half a Haas for breakfast.

Lunchtime! Dry Sea Scallops. Garlic.  Brussel sprouts. Salad of: the other half a Haas, Gotham Greens local Butter head lettuce, cilantro (meant for dinner), Greenhouse cucumber.  Used some mayo to combine with the avocado as a dressing.

Dinner with a few friends as I went for the makings of tacos and guacamole.   Smart Chicken Organic Boneless Chicken Breast processed using purified cold air instead of water…hmmm.  Hot Bread Corn Tortillas.  For the guac: another Haas avocado, white onion, tomatoes, limes, cilantro (again), Salsa Verde which had tomatillos, onion, garlic, and jalepeno peppers.   Might as well have white wine.  Three Thieves Bandit Pinot Grigio  1 liter comes in a heavy carton.  Perfect.   Check it out on
