Happy Halloween & Hurricane Eats
And now some other things I ate over the last two and a half days. I heard late last week that the weather could be horrible, so I went to Target and got a few things, planning to stay inside for at least two days, preparing for perhaps more. I got a few frozen items that were inexpensive, thinking they would be easy to cook and if we lost power and had to throw them out, oh well. And then I got several things that required no refrigeration, like soup and rice. (As it turned out, we did not lose power at all so I only cooked a couple of the frozen items and none of the soup.) Here is what we ate:
I am not a fan of French-bread pizza, but Elizabeth is, so I gladly cooked one for her. (And I took a bite; it was better than I was expecting... but it's still not my favorite pizza.)
a place I wrote about in August, actually stayed open both days. (Not full days, of course, but longer than anyone else.)
"Thank you so much for being open," I overheard a woman say to an employee.
"We have to feed Brooklyn Heights," the employee responded.
The place was packed, but they have their system down and it never takes too long. I got a sausage, scrambled egg and cheese breakfast sandwich for Elizabeth and myself to split, and some home fries. I put Sir Kensington's on my half of both.
"Do you think you used enough buffalo sauce?" she asked me.
Actually, I didn't.
At any rate, our neighborhood escaped with very minimal damage. I hope everything is good with you, too. Have a great Halloween.
