Last week was an interesting week. We had storms come through. And wind. So much wind. We didn’t have any tornados where I live, but there were some farther West than here. We had a lot of trees down, and that equaled a lot of people without electric. Including us. We lost it Friday evening at 6:45. We got it back Saturday night, for a total of 26 hours and 20 minutes without.
In the days before the storm, we had burgers on the grill. This will be happening a lot now that the weather is a little warmer. lol

Another night I made oven roasted asparagus with pasta. I put olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and basil on the asparagus and bake in the oven till desired doneness. It’s always so good.
Friday, since we were expecting the electric to go out, I declared it sandwich night. I didn’t want to get in the middle of cooking and have it go out. Even though I am prepared to cook without electric, I didn’t want to have to switch in the middle of the meal. We had tuna salad, ham, 3 kinds of cheese, 2 kinds of pickles, grapes, chips, lettuce, and tomatoes. I don’t mind having sandwich night. Same of these other people don’t like to have it often. Oh well. lol
We had fun Friday night playing Uno Dare. We laughed a lot! Highly recommend this game!
Above, I mentioned that I am prepared to cook without electric. And I did. Saturday morning I made my eggs on this gas burner. It works great, and I highly recommend it.
My son also cooked hash on it. Canned hash is one of the proteins I keep in stock in my pantry for emergencies. It’s hard to keep my son and husband from eating any time, though. lol So they were happy to finally get to eat some. lol
