Thank you for your continued support!

Meals by Fat Cat My vision is a collaborative of good cooks that we have in Lima, and I expect that will grow and change just as our seasons. After a hiatus from the cooking and making way too much soup at home I was inspired to get back in the kitchen. I didn’t expect it to happen so soon but it did…and here we are! We will be featuring other fabulous creations from folks I know. You will notice Hannah has some additions to this menu as she will in the future. Food is something that brings us together. It’s something we create from our hearts and honestly we just aren’t complete without our time in the kitchen. It’s a little crazy but it is the truth. If you are interested in getting in the kitchen and adding to the selection please just let me know! Maybe you smoke….maybe you bake….maybe you make jams and jellies…….maybe you have some family recipes that you would like to sell…..we’d love to add your creations on the menu! It’s kind of exciting you think of where this might go…all of us creating together.

So here’s the plan
We will be creating weekly dishes to be picked up the following Monday, at the Civic Center. That will be our home base and our licensed kitchen. The orders can be picked up by going through the front entrance of the Veterans Memorial Civic Center (not the box office entrance.) You may pick up orders from 3:00 p.m. until 5:30 p.m.. If you need it delivered we can arrange for that as well. This is a new adventure for us so things may change a little along the way. For now that is the game plan. NOTE: Meal pick-ups for December 2019 will be Mondays only.
