I haven't had a chance to even think about a Saturday blog post this week but that does not mean I didn't think about the pantry.
Of course, the hurricane was in the news far longer than any hurricane I can remember. It certainly reminded me of the need to be prepared. I couldn't concentrate on my own preparedness at the time but I did think to recharge my emergency radio.
I accomplished a lot of needed Fall cleaning, all done a little at a time. It requires little concentration so cleaning was just the right household chore to do while I was distracted.
The weather last week was beautiful and Fall-like so it made me think of cool weather cooking and baking. When I did my stock-up shopping last week, I started thinking more toward what I need in the pantry for the change in cooking... like soups and chili... and bought canned items to be prepared for those recipes.
We are going to be back to Summer heat for awhile (yuk) but at least true Fall is around the corner. Much like a snowfall in March, you know true Spring is near. I am definitely ready for Fall.
