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
I'm with Sharon - why don't you get out of town. Come down to Florida and stay with us or even better, take Sharon up on her offer of France.
Hope you have a French press coffee maker. At least you'll have coffee in the mornings. I'm crossing fingers and toes you get power soon. I would be going nuts...
I know first hand how difficult this situation is.
My husband works for a major utility company and they just sent additional crews to join the ones already there.
SENDING GOOD VIBES FROM NEW ORLEANS,
BUT that soup looks amazing...that stock....I need to make homemade stock I am realizing!
Hang in there!
Our pantry is our emergensy storehouse (we have occasional earthquakes out here) and I try to keep some ready to go products there for tough times or bad days.
This isn't much help, but other than prayers it is all I have to offer right now.
