What did you have for dinner during Hurricane Sandy? [moved from Manhattan]
I'll start: Bottle of Horror Show by Vending Machine winery (34% Sousao, 33% Montepulciano, 33% Tannat)-then stopped by Veatery (Vietnamese-formerly Saigon Grill on 88th and 2nd) for spicy ribs and bowl of rice. Slept like a baby after.
We had some Korean-style pork ribs in the freezer that need hours to slow cook, so we never find the time to make them. We put them on mid-day yesterday and later roasted some miscellaneous vegetables. Waking up to a cleaner fridge and freezer, with a few less bottles of soju on hand.
I live in the suburb so I dont have good restaurants open near me. I had homemade sesame noodles plus leftover Bibimbap from HMart. Dessert was Haagen Daz Vanilla Espresso ice cream. Not great but not bad considering the storm got pretty bad at around 8 pm. Dont think I wanted to be outside during that time.
I can't speak for me, but on Sunday night, we sent my son back to NYC on the last Amtrak train out of Paoli PA. I loaded him up with my homemade brioche au chocolat. I also made plain brioche so made him a "Brie-Oche" sandwich outta--you got it! Brie and plain brioche--with some nice saucison as well. Bread Pudding and a ton of halloween candy b/c I know we will not have many trick-or-treaters here due to the storm.
My good thoughts and good karma are being channeled to all living in and around NYC. Stay positive. Stay well. Stay good-humored!
I have a very sweet neighbour -conservative as all get-out, but you can't have everything!- who invited me to a dinner of cold elbow-macaroni, tuna, and (melded) hot sauce with an accompaniment of not-so-fancy chianti.
The wind was howling, howling outside the windows, and stranger sounds without you've never heard before (only the theramin was missing), but it was a truly delightful meal.
EDIT: 42nd @ First, so right in the teeth of the storm.
Spaghetti and meatballs in my well lit kitchen on the UWS... but, lunch today was a disaster... Fairway was open but there was no fresh bread... So here I am eating a niciose salad without a fresh baguette. And as I am forced to work from home I am getting stir crazy... woe is me.
(for anyone that doesn't get sarcasm... my plight is well, not a plight and I know it)
