Friday Feast: Inclement Weather
Guys! Look at how much snow we got last weekend! It was intense.
I love snow, really, but last weekend was too much, mostly because I had a big adrenaline rush when I couldn’t get up a hill in our neighborhood the day after the storm. So, I’ll clarify: I do love snow… I just don’t like ice.
As my coworker Sarah said, Nashville’s weather forecasters “call wolf” quite often. There is always a frenzy to get to the store and stock up because “the GREAT Snow Storm of 2010 is coming!” So, when I saw the weekend outlook, I said, eh, we’ve got enough in the pantry. False. I truly did not anticipate the fact that I would be making at least 7 meals while stuck inside. I just figured we’d be ok.
Thus, Inclement Weather Friday Feast!
No, this isn’t really a recipe with preparation time, etc., but it was a creative concoction that I am kind of proud of. JD and I made the best out of a no-fun situation, and we came up with some seriously funny combinations. My favorite was on Friday night where we just grabbed a bunch of stuff and made it our meal.
So, above we’ve got (clockwise from bottom left) Publix Premium Margherita Pizza, cucumbers(Mom, see? I got my veggies in!), drinks, a pimento cheese sandwich, oranges and pasta salad leftover from my work event. (Maybe Friday was so fun because it included margaritas and whiskey…!)
Have you ever had to scrounge around to make an interesting meal? Maybe you’ve been tired and not wanted to round something up, or you have tons of little leftovers but not enough individually for a full meal? My friend Kristen told me about how they sometimes have “YOYO” (You’re On Your Own) nights at their house, and they have funny combinations at dinner. Maybe it’s because I’m not a fan of excess, but I love the idea of cleaning out your pantry pre-vacation or pre-grocery trip.
Any future “Inclement Weather” Friday Feast concoctions to add?
