Roughing It

During Super Storm "Sandy" we found ourselves,
without power for 6 days.
"Roughing It"
Let me show you what I mean.
 
The day before the storm, I picked up a fresh baked pound cake,
at The Scone Pony, just in case!!
 
After it was sliced, it received a nice bath in
my special whipped egg mixture.
(Lighting a gas stove without electric, requires only a flame.)
 
After it was browned on both sides,
 
it received a pretty dusting of powdered sugar.
 
I had cooked a pound of bacon, the day before, (good thinking)
I warmed up the syrup (nice touch, right)
and then we all inhaled this yummy breakfast!!
So this is how we "rough it" in our neck of the woods!

It's Rural Thurdsay, what fun things have you guys been up to??

Share them today with Nancy at A Rural Journal

That's how we rough it in the actual woods...when we camp! The guys fix the most amazing breakfasts on their propane stoves! I'm sorry you were without power, but I continue to be encouraged by your spirit through it all!!

Bonnie said...

That looks and sounds soooo yummy. I've never had cake done in an egg mix before, we do it with bread (eggy bread or french toast). I bet your one is so much better than that though. :))

Tricia Hays said...

I completely understand... we'll be here when you're able to join! Thanks Debbie =)

eileeninmd said...

Debbie, this looks and sounds very rough. You really did have a tough time there, HA HA! Your meal looks delicious!

Judy said...

Can I come to your house, the next time the power goes out here?
And I love those bird photos!! Hope you have trimmed those thin branches, so they won't be getting in the way next time!!!

S. Etole said...

That looks delicious.

Rosemary Aubut said...

Wow and yummy! Roughing it never looked so good!

Daniel LaFrance said...

Forward thinking people are natural problem solvers. Good for you!

We had really strong winds and in preparation put anything outdoors that could become airborne into the garage. We had sufficient firewood at the ready for our wood stove.

Kerri said...

That's the kind of "roughing it" I like!

Lisa Gordon said...

Ooooo, this looks yummy, Debbie!
I wish you and your family a beautiful Thanksgiving.
xo.

LeAnn said...

Wow, now I am hungry and will look forward to a breakfast like this one. Loved the pictures.
I do know what it is like to have the power out for a few days. We had a ice storm several years ago and we didn't have power. I thought I had flashlights and candles in areas I could find them. However, I ended up searching for them in the garage. It was so dark I had to feel around for them. It taught me a few things about prepardness.
Blessings!

You sure were prepared for an outage and gas stoves come in very handy when the electric goes out. Smart idea to do the bacon beforehand too!

kulasa said...

now that is yummy! with the bacon am sure your breakfast was deliciously memorable despite the lack of electricity :) concerned about the little bump on the road post...hope everything is fine on your side of the world...do take care always....blessed day...
