Okay maybe she doesn’t specifically hate my fridge, but over the past few years New England has taken a beating by various storms. We had the big snow storm in 2008, the hurricane earlier this year, and now a freak October snow storm that left hundreds of thousands of people without power. Us being one of them for 4 days. This of course means we lost almost of all of our food, including the freezer.
This weekend was spent working on two projects, one was installing a transfer switch so that we can buy a generator. We are done with no flushing toilets and bored kids. The other project is getting some food back in the freezer. While I work on the writing and photos for my future posts, here are some pictures.
These particular trees didn’t do any damage, but they are going to be a pain to clean up.
I didn’t grow up loving to cook. Most of the food I grew up on was easy to prepare meals. We had one I like to refer to as yellow dinner, baked chicken breasts, corn niblets in butter sauce and boxed macaroni and cheese. My mom did have a few recipes up her sleeve, which I will share one day.
As an adult I continued this type of eating. What can I put in the microwave? This changed when I first moved to South Carolina in my mid 30’s. I was working from my apartment and since I didn’t have to commute, I had lots of free time and found myself very bored. I started watching Food Network which is where my love of cooking started. I will confess that Magnum PI was on during my lunch break, and I would do my best not to miss an episode.
I started cooking recipes that I saw on the Food Network. It wasn’t until I started watching Anne Burrell on Secrets of a Restaurant Chef that I really started to enjoy the process of cooking.
This blog is going to be my way of documenting my journey with food.
More to come!
