WOW! The potential is real for the strongest hurricane hit on the Northeast in at least a couple decades this weekend! Forget dinner parties and entertaining, it sounds like we’ll be battling high winds and torrential rain.
Still, ya gotta eat! If the power goes out you may need to do some Cooking Straight from the Pantry. (Of course I’m assuming you have a gas stove like I do.) Then again, with no power, you may need to clean out the freezer! I’ve got a couple of strip steaks in my freezer. (‘m not sure but I think I have a nice chunk of gorgonzola, so I can make one of my favorite sauces to go with it. There is a beautiful Pork Tenderloin in there as well. It will be perfect hot off the grill.
What to go with it? With all the excitement, I’d keep it simple. Grilled Zucchini or Corn and a Green Salad should do it. If the powers out, dessert’s easy – whatever ice cream or Gelato is rapidly melting in the freezer!
And finally, what to drink? A Dark & Stormy of course!
1- 2 ounces dark rum
4-6 ounces ginger beer
Fill a tall glass with ice cubes, stir in the rum and the ginger beer. Top it off with a squirt of lime and enjoy!
Stay safe and dry this weekend and bon appétit!
