Snow was forecasted and everyone was getting worked up about it. I had thought in passing about buying groceries before the snow hit but I always stretch it as far as I can at the end of the month. I really don't want to go before the first.
And then it did. Eleven inches that closed work and clogged my parking lot burying my car. I couldn't get out for two and a half days.
About four hours in the first day I was bored and decided to play my version of the tv show where the chef knocks on random peoples doors and cooks dinner with what they have. I miss that show.
Ok, time to get creative. The brown rice and broccoli is a given. The large plastic container is sushi rice and very creamy so a Tex Mex Pilaf with that. Finally, an onion pork stew with the rest.
Ok, ok. Good thing I have the Internet. I just need to wash my kitchen like normal. It doesn't look like any got near the food I was already cooking in a covered pan but if it did 10 minutes of boiling will kill it. whew. I throw away the second can of tomato sauce without trying to open it and move on.
I didn't take photos of brown rice and broccoli since everyone knows what that looks like. I cooked the brown rice in bouillon. Half I left plain and the other half I made cheesy.
Finally with nothing left but the Half and Half and the last two pound bag of broccoli I decided to make curry. Yummm I do love curry and it turns out broccoli curry is just as good as any other kind.
My car is now freed from the snow and I can get out again and the weather people say 10 more inches will be falling tomorrow. I could go grocery shopping but I now have 14 meals in the freezer with the icecream and I still have the eggs. The eggs are just begging to be made into cornbread, chocolate cupcakes, and waffles. I think I'll just wait until the first.
