Power outage brinner
Well our power was out for 4 days from a huge storm that rolled through on June 29th. They say it was a derecho, which to us sounds like some kind of Mexican dish. But it is actually a widespread, long lived windstorm and boy did the Midwest get hit. You can learn more about derechos here.
On the first night of the power out, we were actually watching Rieley. We were lucky we picked something to make for dinner that we could on our camp stove. We made chicken patty versions of this chicken nugget recipe. Just fried it up in some coconut oil. Rieley especially loved the porch party that followed. And the next morning we made bacon and eggs on the porch.
Luckily we were able to borrow our friend's generator so we did not lose all of the beef we just bought and didn't have to eat out every meal. We became very good at making things on the grill and camp stove. The best dinner came on the last night of our power being out. We love making brinner and this recipe was just what we needed. We plan on making it when we are out camping along the AT in August.
