Hurricane Season has Returned

The meat on the bottom shelf isn’t grill friendly. Neither are the frozen veggies and fruits.

The fact that no hurricanes have threatened my area doesn’t change the fact that it’s Hurricane Season.  Check out the dates for your area at the National Hurricane Center.

Last year I posted…”Prepping My Upright Freezer for Hurricane Season.” It’s full of great tips. Unfortunately I haven’t followed my own advice this year, yet.

Bread freezes well and keeps the freezer door filled.

Right now the freezer is filled with water and bread which last well and keep the freezer operating efficiently. But over the last couple of months I’ve bought some frozen fruit and meat on sale, they’re not very grill friendly.  Remember hurricanes often mean no electricity.

One package of frozen chicken has made it into the crock pot for dinner tonight!

So my goal over the next couple of weeks will be to eat the chicken breasts and pork roast. I’m starting tonight with a new chicken recipe.  And sometime this weekend I’ll buy some more drinking water, that way if the power goes out we’ll have water to drink while waiting for the frozen water to melt.

Remember everyone should stockpile three days of drinking water and canned food for emergencies!

    Glad you are prepared — hoping for a CALM hurricane season.

  2. I’ve never lived in places with that type of problems, it must be hard!

      Every area of the world has problems…some places have flooding or tornadoes. We get hurricanes, some years. That’s why it’s recommended that everyone, no matter where they live, have a 3 day supply of food and water for their family. So be safe and stock up! 🙂

    We have just started doing that. It all started because my husband works for the steel mill and their contract is up in a month. If we strike, we’ll be well prepared with food and savings. After the threat of the strike is over, we’ll continue to have a back up supply of food. It’s not a bad idea!

      Sorry to hear about your husband’s possible job issues. Being prepared with food and savings will let you be more flexible in whatever situation you end up in.
