I have been cooking a lot more than usual, but I have become increasingly more comfortable ordering take out. For me, take out isn’t the same as going to a restaurant — you miss the atmosphere — but it’s as close as I’m willing to get right now. With that said, it’s hard to feel like the food, mine or the restaurants, really tastes the same. I have fatigue, that’s for sure. Thankfully, I recently discovered a truffle-infused hot sauce called TRUFF that lets me kick things up a notch. Bam! 

It’s made with ripe chili peppers, black truffle oil, and agave nectar, and it delivers a flavor-filled punch to any food you put it on. When I first thought about trying it, I was a little skeptical. While truffles sounded good, I didn’t want it to be super truffely. Thankfully, the hot

Update: July 15, 2020

It seems that for some NBA players in the Orlando bubble, the questionable food menu was too much to bare. Richaun Holmes of the Sacramento Kings left the bubble after the initial quarantine period to pick up a food delivery, and he is now required to self quarantine for 10 days to ensure he is free of the coronavirus.

“After the initial quarantine period, I briefly and accidentally crossed the NBA campus line to pick up a food delivery. I am currently in quarantine and have 8 days left. I apologize for my actions and look forward to rejoining my teammates for our playoff push,” Holmes wrote in a statement posted to Twitter.

It’s unclear what it is that Holmes ordered, but one thing’s for sure…it wasn’t his mother’s cooking. The basketball player’s mother took to Twitter to poke fun

With quarantine winding down, Miami is hunting for any kind of entertainment. Like, any

How desperate are we to break out of quarantine mode? Pretty.

We have seen all of Netflix. Streamed all the Instagram lives. Cooked all the food.

We. Are. Bored.

Even as Miami starts to slowly open up, we plan to be vigilant about our comings and goings and to continue to act like everyone on the streets is an asymptomatic superspreader with a wet sneeze in the chamber.

But the monotony of quarantine is enough to drive us bananas and we need something to do. So now, we have turned to things we never would have contemplated doing In the pre-rona era to keep ourselves entertained.

Purging our homes

Miami successfully Marie Kondo-ed the entire house during the first few weeks of quarantine, because what else was there to do? Talk to your children?

Jennifer Lawrence Talks Quarantine Drinking Habits With Amy Schumer

Jennifer Lawrence is just like Us! The Passengers star shared her drinking habits while quarantined amid the coronavirus pandemic on a recent episode of Amy Schumer Learns to Cook — and they are refreshingly relatable.

At the start of the third episode of the quarantine cooking show, Schumer, 38, was with her husband Chris Fischer and poured herself a glass of wine. She then decided to give Lawrence, 29, a call to get her thoughts on different vino varieties. “We’re drinking chardonnay because, as you know, I like an oaky chard,” the Trainwreck star told the Oscar winner via phone. “What kind of wine do you like? I don’t remember because I’m a bad friend.”

“Sauvignon blanc,” Lawrence replied. “I mean, [that’s] if I’m drinking white, which I think is mainly for sluts,” she joked.

“How dare you,” Schumer
