I am afraid…really afraid…Den is out shopping ahead of the storm and I am afraid of the amount of doubles he may bring home. He has called me three times already from the store. We went over the list this morning. He told me to text if we needed anything for this Cabbage And Beef Soup he wants to make but he forgot to look at the text! Yikes! We are now in the bread aisle together painstakingly going over organic breads. We just exited the noodle aisle and there were so many choices that I have a headache. I haven’t been going out to small stores because of all the coughing sneezing sniffling people that are everywhere. I wanted to go to Trader Joe’s but Den determined that the store was too small and I will be too exposed.
But on the other hand why do we have this frenzied need to shop when a storm is predicted? We may have strong winds on Sunday which means no power. We may have snow and ice. Or…we may have nothing! If we don’t have power we need sandwich stuff so today I am roasting a chicken and making Ina Garten’s Chicken Soup…thus the noodle decision making episode. We can heat soup on the grill? Den has his heart set on making that cabbage soup for Sunday…whoopsie…another phone call…there is a sale on Haagen Daz ice cream…what flavor do I want? Can I just tell you how sweet Den is? Even when he is annoying!
This is the one pot Hamburger Cabbage Soup from The Kitchn. I want to make this no knead farmhouse bread from Julia Frey’s Vikalinka Blog. I have great plans for a Sunday with potentially no power!
Reading this…it came to me as a surprise and I think I like it but I am only about 12% into it.
I want to read these next…if we have tons of ice and snow this is a chiller mystery weekend.
Stay warm and dry!
See you on Monday…hopefully we will have power!
