Prepping ... In Real Life

We live somewhere here ...

... in the highlighted path of the storm. Although we are not anticipating major issues (we live nowhere near a likely-to-flood body of water, for example), we are taking some precautions. Today I made: 2 loaves of bread (and ground up a bunch more wheat to have on hand), a batch of tortillas, a batch of hummus, and I'm cooking some beans with planned leftovers for the week. While we're catching up on the many (!) loads of laundry, I'm thinking that a pile of chocolate chip cookies might help us keep our momentum.


  1. Yes, chocolate chip cookies are an essential when a storm is coming in. My kids and I made a bunch of cut-out Christmas cookies right before the ice storm that left us without power for nearly 2 weeks. Unfortunately we ate all the cookies long before we got power!

    I think keeping up on laundry is an under-rated prep. It is so unglamorous but essential.

  2. I agree! Chocolate chip cookies are perfect for momentum... and morale! YUM!

  3. That's why I have a gas stove. If all else fails, power outages, I can still REV up the OVEN! And nothing better than morale/comfort food!!
