Snow is coming tomorrow.
Why do people rush to the grocery store for: milk, eggs and bread?
particularly when they are such comparatively poor choices for storage in a power out sitchyashun...
Yeah, but french toast!
Food for when you are snowed in with a significant other, not survival food
There's a song in there.
You should see the frenzy down here when a hurricane is on the way!
Is like, "Oh my God! a hurricane is predicted to come ashore 200 miles away! We're going to have rain and wind gusts for 48 hours!"
Then everyone runs to the store and buys FIVE shopping carts full of stuff!
In the "olden days", before my time , these items were delivered to your home...ie: milkmen, eggmen, etc...
If a large storm was brewing, there may be no delivery, so I suppose people would make a run on the local market and hoard these things...
So, if we stock up on French Toast for blizzards, what do they do in France???
I agree with KBing, it started a long time ago when they were had-to-have staples during tough times. Most meats and vegetables were kept in freezers or in the basements. The only things missing were the daily staples. There weren't that many choices and these items could be used for many things.
First thing that came to my mind was the Danelectro pedal, then I was trying to envision it in the snow....
Apparently it's survival food. We're expecting ice in northern Arkansas, so I had this same conversation with a guy at work this morning.
I used to be a substitute teacher in the local HS, and plenty of the kids I babysat worked/still work in the local grocery store. They are the ones who told me they call these storms "French Toast Emergencies". It's particularly amusing to me, because in the last 20 years, I can only recall 2 storms that kept me indoors for more than 48 hours, so I don't get too freaky about it.
When we lose power in a winter storm, I put my food on an ice chest and set it outside.
I don't actually watch TV, so once in a while I'll walk into the grocery store on normal mode and notice a wiped out dairy section and ask the dairy guy--Storm coming?
Hope you don't get it too bad.
I do like the Marshman... Who needs a refrigerator when it's snowed in?
Exactamundo! Who needs power if you got chilled drinks, and a fireplace? Getting tight and reading, strumming an acoustic, laying under the covers, no work, sounds like a plan. We only got a couple of inches, but dang, now I want some french toast, and a scotch.
And peanut butter. Don't forget the peanut butter...
Glad to hear it.
The Black Bears need to eat, too!
Yeah, but down here, when a hurricane is coming, the things in shortest supply in the grocery stores are Vienna Sausage and beer!
Man, I thought Dairy Queen was issuing a new Blizzard, a french toast blizzard...
People are convinced that if they can't get their $50,000 SUV out of the driveway they will perish in their homes. That's it in a nutshell. Never mind that the store is within walking distance, and everybody and his dog has a cell phone, it doesn't matter. If you can't drive to the store, you're going to starve to death.
That's what I refer to as "boardin' up and buyin' bread".
