Stocking up and cooking some cold weather recipes for a snowy week ahead.
Are you ready for a blizzard?! That’s what everyone around here is talking about.
Yesterday afternoon I stopped at Trader Joe’s to pick up some fresh produce for my childrens’ nursery school class (I’m snack parent this week) and the line of cars to get into the parking lot was around the block, the shelves were almost bare, and people were frantically filling their shopping carts (if they were lucky to get one) with an endless supply of food.
It always amazes me how nervous people get when snow is predicted in the forecast. I just don’t get it. Do they otherwise not have food in their pantry, fridge, and freezer? I know not everyone is a planner like I am – with my weekly menu and shopping list (as I shared in my interview with RobinsBite) – but I just can’t imagine having nothing in my house in case we were stranded due to a storm. I’m curious to hear what you all think of this phenomenon:
Do you run to the store the minute a storm is coming or is your house well-enough stocked to get through a couple of days you may be stuck inside?
Assuming I can get to the supermarket tomorrow, here’s what we’ll be eating this week.
