Pretty much over for us, still sporadic wind gusts and heavy rain, but we've had the same in strong thunderstorms. Can't check on house until a.m due to curfew starting at 4. It was still too rough and still under tornado warnings then.

Craig is making pan fried burgers and side will be some of the Margaritas pasta salad I made to bring with us.

I hope everyone is staying safe and dry.

Dinner tonight was old Kentucky hickory (brand) ham sliced and buried in scalloped potatoes. Corn off the cob sautéed in butter. Sliced tomato and cucumber from the garden. Iced tea. Football on the teevee.

Tarnation! for evacuees sounds like you's eatin' mighty fine!

I pulled a bag of the Chef John's Spicy Lamb Meatballs with a spicy Eggplant tomato sauce from the freezer, which I had made earlier last week. Defrosted in micro, poured over a little bit of jasmine rice I had left... yumm!

Also lunch pictured, are the dumplings that I have finally cooked properly! They didn't fall apart, stick to the pan or turn to mush and were delish! Yea!!! there's hope for me yet! Let's just hope I can do it again.

That's weird, one is a lunch plate, the other a dinner plate. Lunch plate looks bigger than dinner plate! lol

Looks good, dragn! :yum:

I seasoned and threaded some shrimp on a couple of skewers this afternoon and grilled them on the Weber. Garlic lemon butter for dipping, and some watermelon fresh from the farm stand for a side. Hazelnut ice cream a little later on.

Stupid autocorrect, didn't realize it had changed Margherita to margarita.

We've always eaten pretty well, even with Andrew. Craig had charcoal and propane, so since we didn't have a genny then, we had to cook everything in freezer or lose it. We and the neighbors ate very well on lobster since we had a freezer full from diving, as well as other associated food items. We just all pooled together and had good meals even though we had to use coolers and ice to keep food from spoiling.

After we got the genny, we had power to keep food cool and frozen, as well as.use the buffet burner, toaster oven and microwave, so we've eaten well since.

Like I told DD when she was making fun of me for my cooking frenzy, why not use up what you have instead of buying peanut butter and other canned goods.

Mrs. T and I went down to ride the East Bay Rail Trail in Rhode Island. Closing in on 6:00 PM by the time we got home, so it was a quick dinner. Grilled chicken strips in a bottled mango sauce marinade and sauce, white basmati in the Zoji, green salad.

My parents have a generator and two side-by-side fridge/freezers. When Ike hit, they lost power for a few days, but had plenty of food that they cooked on the gas grill.

You don't need a whole lot to get by. A generator and a good grill can keep you well fed -- even when you have half of a big oak tree resting on your roof. :ohmy:

I think I like the autocorrect version better. ;) Glad to hear things weren't too bad by you. Slowly hearing from friends and family, mostly via Facebook, all letting us know they're OK.

Football....all day and this evening...
We actually got to watch the Browns' game today. Didn't give me one bit of indigestion...unlike the two Ohio State games so far. :glare: Bonus: the Browns now have the same record as the NFL Champs, the Patriots. For this week, at least. :LOL:

I think we cleaned up the last of the leftovers. Before those, however, I made loaded salads with bacon, egg, Queso Fresco, celery, carrots, tomatoes, mushrooms...plus greens. Loverly really enjoyed her salad! :)

I didn't get to see that game, although I am a somewhat more pleased with the outcome. :angel: :LOL:

Big Ben is starting to show his age. Either that, or the Clowns finally have a defense we might be proud of someday. Also, Kizer looks like he just might develop into a credible NFL QB. We don't see many games, what with living in Pats territory, so it's hard to compare. At least Kizer didn't look lost, spooked, or scared. The kid needs to learn to get rid of the ball faster, though.

I was blown away by TJ Watt. He may just be as good as his big brother JJ Watt. Two sacks and an Interception in his first NFL regular season game. :ohmy:
