This weekend we are expecting a whopper of a storm and depending on the track, it could mean being snowed in. YEAH! So to check the local data I signed in on twitter and saw this:
What will you eat for two days if you are house-bound and the power is out? (I’m a fan of BLTs with precooked bacon).

One answer was cheetos but really, let’s not do that.
Here are three easy recipes with non-perishables that need no electricity. Buy the ingredients today and you have three storm-proof dinners.
Note that I do not promote these brands or that I get paid to show them on my blog. This is just what I had in the pantry.
Black Bean Salsa Salad
1 can of black beans (any brand)
1 can of black-eyed peas (any brand)
1 can of shoe peg corn (any brand)
1 jar of salsa (any brand, mild or spicy, it all works)
Rinse all the beans and the corn, drain well. Mix in a bowl, add salsa. For added flavour add dry chives, paprika seasoning or, parsley. Done.
Tuna Corn Mix
2 cans of tuna in water (any brand)
1 can of corn (any brand)
Drain the tuna cans well. With a fork loosen up the fish. Mix in the corn. Season the mix with paprika and/or chives. Done.
1 package of Tabouli salad mix (any brand)
1 can of diced tomatoes (any brand)
Follow the instruction on the package for mixing the tabouli salad. Add the can of tomatoes. I do not drain the can but use the juice to add extra flavour to the tabouli mix. To taste add lemon juice, parsley, and/or chives. Done.
Add beer, wine, or any other drink. Stay warm and enjoy the storm!
