Whenever a storm comes through, the markets are INSANE! It is absolute madness! Try to get your shopping done a few days earlier. And why buy ten gallons of milk? If you lose power, you will have a lot of nasty milk... so please remember to not go crazy! And don't feel that you need to pig out on just cereal or junk food either. Of course, I love eating those items too; however, I still like to make myself some nice dishes, even if I don't have power! I refuse to let the power win! So don't cave in, you can still eat well, even if it is in the dark!
Here are 5 recipes you can make ahead or make during the storm:
1.) Homemade Granola - this is great! It makes a ton of granola so you can make it ahead of time and then toss it in some yogurt, cereal, or just eat plain!
2.) Mexican Caviar (Corn and Black Bean Salsa) - This requires no cooking, so you can just mix the ingredients together, grab a bag of chips, and enjoy!
3.) Caprese Salad - simple, easy, delicious!
Enjoy these few recipes and most importantly, stay safe! And maybe throw in some laundry and do your dishes before the storm hits. No one likes a stinky house!
