Storm shopping

johnlockedema | Feb 4, 2010 01:39 PM

With a big storm heading to NJ, we'll see the usual culprits clogging the supermarket parking lots buying bread, milk, and eggs.

What do you provision in advance of a storm? I always have boxed milk for emergencies, and bread in the freezer, and don't use a ton of eggs. And I'll go shopping tonight after 9 to avoid the crush.

I'll visit the deli counter for cold cuts for the kids-two teens can make short work of turkey, roast beef, and cheese. A case of seltzer. Grapefruits. Fixings for potato salad. A nice roast to make into long simmered beef in red wine and tomato sauce. Egg noodles too. Rice and asparagus for risotto. That should cover the storm and Super Bowl Sunday.
