Well the Husband, the Toddler and I made it through Hurricane Irene. The good news is that we did not lose power. The bad news is that all I have in my house is canned food since I was 100% certain that we would lose power.
The Husband thinks all the stores are still closed, and refuses to drive anywhere. And I am still in my pajamas as I write this. So I guess I will have to go to the store tomorrow to get fresh food. We will use the canned goods tonight, or maybe thaw something frozen and have a "surprise" for dinner (I am really bad at labeling things!).
Last night, while we were anticipating the worst of Irene, I made "Hurricane Chicken". Basically I looked around and threw stuff in the oven and called it a meal. I thought it tasted pretty good. The Husband was expecting more flavor. Oh well!
Did you get hit by the hurricane? If so, I hope you and your family are safe and that it didn't do too much damage to your property!
