My Empty Post-Hurricane Freezer

We’re back! We finally got our power back, after 6 full days without. Wow, it feels terrific and I am very very grateful. This was the worst storm I remember and sure, it was very inconvenient for us, but we didn’t suffer the terrible damage we know others did. So, we’re happy to be home. The very first thing I did? Make a fresh pot of coffee of course. I had put some jarred half and half cream in my freezer-ice bin and even after 6 days without power, the cream was still cold and good, so I was able to have the coffee just the way I like it. Second? Ugh. Cleaning the fridge and freezer. Discarding the food (fortunately I was able to bring meat/poultry to my brother’s freezer), everything in the fridge and freezer except for a few bagels. Time to start over.  Back to cooking this week.
