There seems to be a tradition around here when it snows, to race to the grocery store and stock up on bread, milk & eggs. Now I grant you, it’s a big storm and we’ll be hunkered down all day. There will be no safe streets to travel and we won’t be able to grocery shop. However, tomorrow, the roads open back up, as do the stores. So what is everyone, who stockpiled the bread, milk, and eggs, doing with them on this snowy day? I want to know!
Is there a bread, milk, eggs party that I was not invited to? How would I get there? The roads are impassible! Is there a secret recipe I’m unaware of? Hmmm, French Toast maybe? Fried egg sandwich with milk as a side? Scrambled eggs & toast?
All I know is, according to last night’s news report, there was grocery store after convenience store after corner store with depleted shelves of bread, milk, and eggs. Uh-oh, I did not stop and buy any, nor do I have any now. How will I survive this storm?
Are these staples somehow helpful in the removal of snow? Is that why everyone hoards them? Do they have hidden, magical powers I’m not privy to? Further investigation required.
Or, have the grocery store conglomerates brain-washed us subliminally into thinking, when we hear snow…”must buy bread, milk, eggs”? Have we become Stepford Wives?
If you happen to be one of the purchasers of the bread, milk, & eggs for this snowstorm, please tell me, what are you doing with them today? Much thanks!!
Everyone stay safe and have a yummy day!!
