A couple of nights ago, our neighborhood lost power at about 5:30. We called and were told that it was expected back on at 7:45. Well, that put a skewer through any cooking we might have done for dinner. When our power goes out, not only is the microwave out of service, so is our entire range, which is a gas appliance but has an electronic starter. It was pointed out that we could have barbecued, but now that it’s officially fall it’s a bit chilly out in the evenings and it became clear that barbecuing was not going to happen.
So what do you eat when the power goes out and you can’t cook?
Shrimp California rolls!
