Cold Weather Comfort Food

Who wants a cold lunch when we have so many hot options? I am always in a hurry, so I like to grab one of our microwavable bowls available in our cases. No matter if I am in the mood for Indian, Asian, or Italian, my cravings can be satisfied! Lately I’ve been hooked on our Salmon Teriyaki Bowl. It’s not only good for you, it’s delicious! This Asian bowl has our fresh-grilled salmon glazed with teriyaki sauce and served with steamed rice and broccoli. My kids like the Chicken Tikka Masala Bowl that is full of tender DLM Chicken and veggies with a sauce that “rocks.”

Soup is classic, cold weather comfort food and we have the best around. Did you know that each one of our stores have several hot soups to choose from every single day? Everyone has their favorites, and this winter a couple of mine are the Shrimp Tomato Basil, Pork Posole, and Black Bean Pumpkin. They are made from scratch every day in our kitchens and you can find out what each store has simmering by checking our website

For a fast dinner, I will sometimes pick up the fixings for turkey hot shots or French Dip sandwiches. I can get them on the table fast and everyone is happy. Or you can order any one of your favorite sandwiches to go and heat them up at home when everyone is settled down and ready to stay in for the night.

Another option is grabbing a couple of our DLM Dinner Deals. You can pick out what you like, and with choices like with Asiago Chicken or Parmesan Tilapia how can you go wrong? We even offer our popular Chicken Tenders in our Dinner Deals with the quality that can’t be beat anywhere. Did you know we make them everyday in all of our stores from fresh DLM Chicken? That means no freezer and no nasty ingredients; just great flavor and freshness.

Let us help you create some cold weather comfort by filling your tummies with some delicious food!
