What are you cooking/preparing during the storm?

Ahead of power cuts and the like, what are you doing?

For example, I'm triaging my freezer and fridge. Stuff that won't survive a power cut well is going first. Yes, the prepared foods like my Trader Joe's frozen tamales. Frozen meat is a keeper since I'd have to defrost it anyway, and I can put it on the grill. Likewise my frozen homemade split pea soup. (On the grill in a stockpot.)

I might do some baking later, as I have some frozen berries that also won't keep. Besides, it'll keep the house warm.

I recommend that you print any great ideas, since, well, you get the idea. ;)
