BREAD, MILK, EGGS…

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!!

  1. lol! It happens every. single. time. People are preparing for the snow apocalypse. Tomorrow will be normal and there will be thousands of homes across Massachusetts with too much bread and too many eggs. 😉

  2. I wonder if they are making snow ice cream? LOL! That’s crazy that the store shelves are so bare! Guess snow storms make them hungry for breakfast!

    • HA! You may have just solved the mystery. Normally people don’t have time for breakfast because they have to go to work…but with the storm they’ll be home and will have time! Bravo PJ…you would make a crack detective!! LOL 😉

    • Deb, I wanted to let you know that I had to take Bria back to the vet this evening and have her euthanized. This afternoon she started seizing one right after the other. It was just terrible. I couldn’t stand seeing her go through that.

    • Oh PJ I’m so sorry! You did the right thing, you weren’t selfish and try to keep her hanging on so you wouldn’t have to say good-bye. That was so brave of you and I know Bria thanks you and she’s still right there with you, she’s just a little harder to see…but you can feel her. She’ll never leave you and one day you will be together again! I cannot begin to say how very sad I am feeling for you right now. I know how difficult what you did is, I’ve been there. You’ll be sad for awhile and that’s ok. At least you gave Bria a beautiful, loving home and she will always be grateful for you. There are no words that will make you feel better but if you need to talk I’m always here. She’s become an angel now, I’m sure she always. My heart goes out to you PJ, again I’m so very sorry!! xoxo

    • Thank you so much Deb for your kind and loving words. My heart is broken but I know I did the right thing for her. She could not have lasted much longer going through those horrible seizures. I also know that she is at peace and is in a healthy new body and running in beautiful green grass with my other beloved pets that have passed away. It truly was the only loving thing I could have done for her. Let her rest in peace. I agree. She is still with me but now as an angel. Love you Deb! xoxoxo

    • You are absolutely right, you did do the right thing! How awful it must have been to watch her seize like that, I’m sorry you had to experience that. I put Barney down on March 15, 2001. I asked him to greet Bria, to play with her and show her around. I bet they’re playing tag in that green grass right now!! He always loved to run and play. You did do the loving thing, as a Mom would do. Love you too PJ!! xoxo

  3. I tried concocting a special sandwich to celebrate March (and eggs, milk and bread, plus apples and cheese…) – https://cookupastory.wordpress.com/2017/03/14/french-toast-sandwiches/

    • Hey Vinny, thanks for stopping by and for sharing that tasty recipe. I’m about to fill out my March Madness bracket…might work up an appetite for a sandwich by the time I’m done!! 😉

  4. Our big blizzard has turned to rain, making for quite a slushy mess here in Southeastern Massachusetts! The good news: shoveling isn’t necessary!

  5. Oh wow! But to be honest, I’d problem be one of those stocking up on them in a snow storm 🙈🙈. Bread, egg, milk could make for some pretty easy and a large variety of dishes too.

  6. hah ha 🙂 sounded too familiar to this Canadian 🙂 I have asked the same question a while ago. I figured milk was essential for babies and children – that was fine. i could literally live on eggs and bread because these are the two things that I love and consume regularly. but I did not think everybody would have these preferences. anyways; one colleague of mine said that while she did not know why these three items are picked so intensely before the storms, but she said she understood that people would hoard them at these times, because (at least where I am) the food would still need to be transported to the stores from other places after the storm, which could take time. My experience with snow days 🙂

    • Seems that it happens every where. We’ve had some huge storms, have even been without power for many days and never can I remember wanting some milk, bread or eggs! Heat maybe, water for the plumbing but not milk, bread & eggs!! Ha to each his own, right! 🙂

  8. Wow!! We don’t do that down here because we don’t have snow but when there’s a Hurricaine coming we stock up on all kind of crap. Stay warm, the snow looks lovely

  9. Down here in Alabama it’s just cold! Well 24 degrees is really cold for us. I don’t think anybody thought of milk, bread and eggs though. Down here we’d probably stock up on Fried chicken! hahaha. But hey, the French toast sounds good…a pile of that, some syrup, if you’re into sugar, and a few good movies…let it snow!
    Oh, I loved the video.
    Great post!

  10. I buy a ton of all of those things and then wait for the store shelves to empty. Then I stand outside my house and sell them at twice the price to everyone that didn’t get to the store in time!!! 😉 (Me Too!)
