Snowstorm shopping list

We’re out of things around here, so a trip to the grocery store was on the morning agenda already. It looks like it could be my last for two whole days!

So what do you always want on hand during such times of global warming. (I know, now snowstorms are a by product of the earth heating up according to certain scientists.) I try to keep certain comfort foods OUT of the house, but it sure is tempting…

Anyway, milk and bananas are on the list so far. I bought a ham at Aldi’s the other day, so using up some of that will be in order. I suspect a round of Senate Bean Soup is in my future.

While our current administration is working hard to outlaw breathing, human methane production remains uncontrolled. 😉 Best take advantage of that while we can.

    For me it’s lots of hamburger. So many ways to go with it and if the power goes off you have perfect grill food. There’s no comfort food like a good meatloaf. And of course–Twinkies.

  2. Milk, bread and cereal. Lots of cereal. Plus cookies for the kids. (wink, wink)

  3. Oh! So that’s why the youngest requested chocolate chips.

    yes hamburger… meat loaf… oh i miss my grandmothers meatloaf….. i so really do…..

    chili is good on snow days

    remember a couple of years ago we had a similar panic alert …. just announced as i type this .. the gov called a state of emergency….. anyway… all this whoop la….. tell me something … isn’t this normal for wisconsin? i mean … snow? I mean … this is a surprise? what’s different now and say 40 yr ago? large screen tv radar of weather?

    albert the alley cat would be so disappointed in us for panicking so easily over a little snow …. barb becker and albert never panicked.

    oh wait… most of you don’t know who albert was do you… so sad… ok… enough… back to the tv panic alert….

    Back then, kids were possibly not quite so happy to have a snow day as that meant they’d be home shoveling the driveway, patio, and sidewalk if your parents’ home had one. There was barely time to watch Albert the Alley Cat.

    The young generation today may be softer. But teh real point may be that those who were young then… the baby-boomers … are middle-aged or better. The majority of our population thinks slower, responds slower, and doesn’t always notice this until it is too late. Pretend the warnings are for them?

    For snowday groceries, have you tried the Kashi roasted vegetable pizza? What about Blueberries! Great plain, in pancakes, muffins, yogurt, ice cream, whipped cream and cinnamon, or fruit salad! YUM! Gotta have hot cocoa… maybe with a candy cane.

  6. To all of you in the NorthEast reading our list, good luck with your storm.

    We did have some long-term power outages here because of the weight of the snow. Make sure you know where your candles and matches are stashed.

    Stay safe and act smart. You’ll be fine!
