Before the blizzard, I went to our local grocery store to stock up on some food and it was completely wiped out! Forget about milk and bread, there was no cereal, no chicken, no ground meat, no soup even! New Yorkers were going all out in their storm preparation. I was left with fresh fruits and vegetables (not that that is ever a bad thing), pasta and a few cuts of meat for choices. I decided to go with a London Broil because Tai and I never splurge for red meat and London Broil is a quick and cheap option. For 5 dollars, I got 4 pounds of beef, SUCH a good deal.
The next day the blizzard came and we got over 2 feet of snow! Back in New Hampshire 2 feet of snow is annoying, but easily dealt with. However in NYC, it’s a huge problem. Where do you even put it all?! The city was a little unprepared, most weather stations were forecasting only 8 inches on the way, but we ended up with almost triple that. The subways closed (which never happens!!!), there were no buses and a travel ban was heavily enforced.
Tai and I were ready to stay indoors all weekend but as luck would have it, our heat broke the morning of the storm. Thankfully we had space heaters and plastic wrap for our windows. It was also a great excuse to cook and bake all day because it helped heat up our apartment!
The Soy Glazed London Broil was so nice to have on such a miserable day. Home cooked, warm, comfort food is the absolute best when the weather is horrible. Hope everyone else in the northeast made it through the storm ok!
