I've found us a great option for this retreat and all upcoming No Meals retreats!
Gregory’s on Main in Troy, TX (just north of Temple) offers yummy comfort food made for you to reheat!

Small casseroles serve 2-4 and the regular serves 4-8.
You can order just one casserole or all of what they offer that week. 
You can get with a friend(s) and plan your order or you can make two-three meals out of a casserole and/or take home your leftovers.
You can pick up your order on Thursday between 3-4 pm at 220 E Main St, Troy, TX 76579Pick up is usually 4-5:30 but they have an obligation and are doing it earlier this week.

  •  Or for $5, my husband Don will pick up your order for you.  I will need to know ahead of time so he will know who’s to pick up. Do not include this when you pay for your order.  You can pay Don when he delivers to RR between  4:30-6 pm on Thursday :-)
