You might have heard that there is a snow-apocalypse coming to New England? Jim Cantore from The Weather Channel is even in town. Whether or not tomorrow it actually happens, I went to the Hannaford supermarket here in Quincy, MA and well, I was surprised by what I saw.
I live in the 18-24” area but given the storm hype, I am weary. That “OMG! It is the Blizzard of 78 all over again!” mentality that drives people, including me to the store. I was a 4 year old during the storm and it was even engraved in my head.
Who knew that Quincy-ites (not sure that is a word) are such tomato lovers that they must buy them before a blizzard? Maybe it is a scurvy thing.
I know that having pancakes during the snow is a nice thing.
I suppose we need to get some iron somehow and what better with a burger?
Or perhaps some chicken?
You can’t make French toast without the following ingredients:
Honey Nut Cheerios are wicked popular.
Freschetta is a popular storm choice.
Triscuits are obviously a necessity.
You have to drink something. Maybe some wine, which I am fortified with of course but you can’t drink wine all day! And as you stand in line, don’t yell at your fellow line mates, bitch about that snow-apocalypse.
Whether you hit the many supermarkets in the area, take your bread, eggs, milk and soda, and make some darn good French toast.
I will post an update during the storm because even thought I am a life long New Englander, one must take pictures of the snow.
