The DW got some nice flounder filets from work. Seasoned with salt, pepper, Old Bay and cayenne then broiled. Over a bed of the DW's bell pepper rice. Chardonnay.

I do have a gas stove And a gas water heater, too, so we can even shower in hot water if there's no electric power. However, I may not want to open the fridge if the power is out, and let all the cold air out. But since we have an extra fridge in the sunroom (decided to keep it after renovating the kitchen last year), I think I will move the meats and veggies I'll need for dinner to that one, and the one in the kitchen can stay closed, if necessary.

i got home late from school (and now i have no class), and wasn't in the mood for the fish that dw grilled, so i made a boiguh by sealing in a hunk o' cheddar between 2 pre-formed patties, then grilled it and topped it with onion, tomato, and lettuce from the garden.

it was oozy good.

sides were a salad, fries, and baked beans.

Good idea. I wish I had that backup. I found out durning hurricane Isabel, that without power for 4 days, the top two shelves of my freezer thawed, but the bottom two stayed frozen solid. Yesterday I rearrange a few things in the event of a power outage, I will still be able to save the meat and a package of bread dough (never know if you will need bread dough in a power outage!).

Pizza on the grill!

Yeah, Isabel was a very interesting situation. We lost power and water for about 5 days. DH laughed at me when I filled up the bathtub before the storm, but it sure came in handy when we had no running water. We couldn't get ice afterward, but I had read somewhere about buying a case of water, opening each one to take out a little of the water, and then freezing them to use as freezer packs in the cooler until they melted, and then of course, you had more water. Didn't do that this time, but if Josephine comes our way, I will.
