Why do I eat so much during a storm?
So this blog will be abbreviated because I am currently braving a hurricane. That sounds so much more dramatic than the fast moving grey clouds, wind and rain happening outside my window.
My mom, dad, family dog Penny and Oma are all hunkered down in Rasco and my's small place. As I have crossed a new threshold of adulthood, my parents have evacuated to me.
Let the cabin fever begin.
Like any good hurricane hostess, I bought jugs of water, froze a pot of water, charged batteries, gathered candles and flashlights and, of course, consumed 94843908630580934095842958 calories and counting.
A friend of mine posted a Facebook status yesterday that rung out with truth, it stated: What is it about hurricane prep that makes me wanna eat everything in sight?
Amen to that sister.
And I think the reason is three-fold:
A) I better eat all this ice cream and better tasting sweet stuff in my fridge and freezer before the power goes out.
B) I deserve comfort food. It's stressful here!
C) Buy a bunch of junk food because it won't spoil. I am so smart.
But don't worry about a storm of calories, because they'll get burned off in post-hurricane clean-up!
Seriously, fellow Louisianans, keep calm and stay dry!

- Canned Goods
- Beer, Abita the better
- Nutella and Peanut Butter for bread
- Cheese Its, Pepper Jack seemed festive
- Dark Chocolate (This stuff is good. Hide it from your guests and eat it when things feel crowded.)
- Apples, it'll even out the junk food right?
