You saw it all over the news: Hurricane Joaquin caused record-setting flooding in much of the Southeast, including the coastal city of Charleston, where I live. There was some damage in the area as a result of this, but luckily, the house I was stranded in was fine during the storm. Mainly, we just ate a lot and watched movies in succession.
Here are some of the things I ate when I was able to venture out of the house without my boots filling up with water.
1. Tenacious Turkey from Queen Street Grocery
This sandwich contained turkey, brie, sprouts, and apple. I don’t know about you, but to me, that was definitely worth leaving the warm, dry house for.
2. Kitchen Sink Grits from Jack’s Cafe
Grits + all sorts of veggies + 3 kinds of breakfast meat + a fried egg + Cheddar cheese = absolute heaven, especially in this weather.
3. Special #16 from La Hacienda
Nothing like some bottomless chips and salsa and a cheap combo meal (a quesadilla AND a tamale AND rice.) to motivate you to leave the house. I’m not even mad that I had to walk through puddles to get this.
4. Oreo Brownies
A friend came over with a tray of these brownies right as we were all starting to get cabin fever. The best part about this was that I didn’t even have to leave the house to eat them. With that being said, however, I would walk through a torrential downpour any time for these.
