Still no power, no heat and it snowed 6" yesterday. Ok, I have been patient, but this sucks.
Many of you nice readers have written suggesting I post "Sandy" recipes. Recipes for survival and what I am cooking with my gas stove.
Good idea, however, by now, my mood is pretty crappy. I have lost all interest in cooking dinner, and more so, EATING dinner in the dark.
Truth is: I have only been cooking eggs and pancakes on the stove for breakfast with fried toast, and lunches are consisting of any homemade stocks I have in my freezer (which has been attached to a small generator outside) with some canned beans, but it's warm and satisfying, and this is why I have so much stock in the freezer! For sick days and emergencies.
So, for shits and giggles, here is my Sandy Soup.
A delicious rich pork stock with lots of shredded pork leftover from some dish I made in July (notice the date).
Lit my stove with my BIC lighter, added a can of white beans, and everything is ok.
Have a safe weekend! Can't wait to be back into full gear. xo
