Get Hurricane Ready: The Cleverly Way! Find out how we get ready for every single hurricane!
The last few days have been pretty interesting around here, to say the least! 🙂 As you may know, we live in sunny Miami. However, with Matthew churning off the Florida coast, sunny South Florida has turned into a bunker-down-stay-in-your-home kinda city. For the last 24-48 hours, all we have done is get ready for this storm to make land somewhere on the east coast of our state. From getting our home ready to buying a few Hurricane necessities, it has been non-stop. Anyways, today I want to give you a sneak peek into how we get Hurricane Ready: The Cleverly Way!
Hurricane Ready: The Cleverly Way!
Hurricane readiness is no joke to us, having lived in the South Florida area since before I was a teen, we have gone through many tropical and hurricanes systems. So, like I mentioned before, the last 24-48 hours we have been a non-stop preparedness mode. From securing our property, such as putting up the shutters and clearing the areas around our home, filling up the car, getting hurricane non-perishable essentials, such as batteries and water, to locating insurance documents. Of course, once all this is done it is time to get Hurricane Ready: The Cleverly Way! And if you are asking why the cleverly way? Well, the answer is simple, it is because it is our way of getting ready for a hurricane. I don’t know about you, but waiting for a hurricane is kinda boring. Therefore, after I make sure that we have gone through our Hurricane checklist, I cook to pass the time. Yes, you read that correctly. I like to make my favorite meals for us to enjoy it while we wait. And what do I make?
Well, I love to make my Easy Cheese-Stuffed Shells, a batch of Nicaraguan gallo pinto (I will share that recipe in a later post), some delicious chicken wings, super yummy spare ribs, my delicious Cheesecake Cookie Bars, pre-cooked some burger (cause you have to be ready for everything), maybe a cake for the hurricane after party and if we have time, anything else that comes to mind. I know that I am not the only one that cooks ahead of a hurricane since my Facebook feed is filled with recipes from my South Florida friends. Do you cook ahead of a hurricane? If so, what do you prepare? Let us know by dropping us a note in the comment section below.
Oh! and by the way, while shopping for some of our Hurricane non-perishable essentials, I picked up some of these ReynoldsTM Disposable Heat & Eat Containers. They are the perfect container for storing your leftovers! These containers are a great alternative to plastic, they are made with plant fibers and they are perfect for the microwave!
