Recap: Commissary’s 12 Days of Christmas

Save to Foursquare

Commissary, our neighborhood outpost, has been celebrating 12 Days of Christmas with a series of specials. Commissary is great because the prices are cheap, the food is local and high-quality, and the location is convenient. It’s not gourmet, but the food hits the spot and the wine list isn’t half bad. (Go for the lettuce wraps.)

So, when I caught wind that one of the 12 Days featured $5 burgers (burgers!) and another featured sugar cookies (cookies!), I made moves to partake in both. In the spirit of Christmas, naturally.

Since I started eating meat again, I’ve become a burger monster. I can’t get enough of them. I have no idea what’s come over me. I’m a small person eating burgers bigger than my face and I’ve never been happier. Burgers, bring em on. With bacon and cheese, please.

I met up with another Cori, Kori, of ‘Chups ketchup for lunch. As the saying goes, on the fifth day of Christmas, two Coris had $5 burgers.

Chups is a local, women-owned business that makes fruit-based, savory ketchups. Kori is a hilarious, stunning blonde around my age. I’m always keen to encounter fellow female entrepreneurs—whether they’re into brunch or French fries makes no difference. Plus, the two go well together.

After I got over the fact she spells her name with a “K,” Kori and I got along like ketchup and French fries. (It’s just too easy.)

We ordered an enormous bowl of piping hot, hand-cut French fries and proceeded to dip. Kori brought along a sample pack of ‘Chups, which included plum, pumpkin, cherry, cranberry, and mango. They were delicious—and savory. Each ketchup is made with vinegar and a special blend of spices—each one tastes different and great on French fries. Personally, I was a huge fan of the pumpkin, plum, and cherry varietals.

The cherry ketchup was delicious slathered across my bacon cheddar burger, which by the way was top notch. I’ve been eating a bunch of burgers lately and the one at Commissary was no-fuss, delicious quality.

There are two remaining days of the 12 Days of Christmas. Today is takeout tuesday with 20% off your to-go orders all day long and tomorrow is bottomless booze. Bottomless booze sounds right up our alley, with all-you-can-imbibe mimosas and Bloodys until 7 p.m.  Sounds like a great way to round out the holidays, Bitches.
