So my husband tells me that it is really looking like Hurricane Bill is coming to Nova Scotia and asked me to buy non-perishable foods just in case we lose power. I get to the grocery store and realize I have no idea what these kinds of foods are! I mean, I do not eat non-perishable foods. I cook and bake everything I can. My doctor told me not to eat food that comes in a box. Good grief! It felt so unnatural to buy cans, bags and boxes but I did it. It’s about survival, right?
So here is my hurricane stash of of food and supplies. Nuts, dried fruit, apple sauce, cookies, pudding, prepared tuna, soup, beef jerky, granola bars, protein bars… Oh and batteries but those are not part of the edibles.
Today we are going to get our giant water bottles filled and I really wish we had a barbecue. If we had one, food would not be as much of an issue. Thankfully I have pretty much run out of food in the fridge so if we do lose power we won’t lose a lot of food and money.
If we do lose power it is going to be weird eating like this and not making food. What will I do instead to pass the time? I have a feeling I’ll be getting my Swiffer out and start dusting. I’ve already vacuumed just in case we do lose power, I have to have a clean house!
At least we won’t be hungry…I hope!
