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.
