She ravaged the East Coast and left over 100 people dead. Truly unbelievable. Leading up to the storm, I was very nervous. Being from Florida, I understand how weather can really take you by surprise and know that government officials prepare people for the worst because they typically don't know how bad it will be until it's happened.
And, I bought enough food to last me over a week. I could hardly carry my basket!
But, luckily for us, Sandy ended up being nothing more than a rainstorm where we were. So, the boy and I locked ourselves in the apartment and made some scrumptious grub, leaving only briefly for replenishment of resources (read: bacon). Our days were lazy and delicious. Let me show you.
For our first night, we cooked up our steaks with some steamed veggies and wine (beer for the boy).
Then we polished off our pints from the weekend. This Dark Chocolate Coconut Ice Cream was DIVINE and eased my stress :)
The next morning, I was served eggs (one yolk, two whites) with onions and peppers, gluten free toast, and bacon. Am I spoiled?
That night, we snacked on chips and salsa for dinner. The next morning, we stuck with what worked and had the same breakfast. It was equally as delicious the second time around. Even though we ran out of bacon and I decided to skip it altogether. It was okay, though, because we continued our love affair with fried pig fat later that evening...
|Bacon wrapped asparaguses. Asparagi. Multiple pieces of asparagus.|
|Nom nom nom.|
The next day we drove out to Long Island to help the boy's parents clean up their house after Sandy flooded their first floor (sad face). To keep things positive, we dressed up for Halloween as, what else?
BACON & EGGS.
