Have you heard about Irene?

So there is a category whatever hurricane heading in our direction. What would you do? Well this is what I did.
Roasted Cauliflower!
 Lucy catching up on the storm this morning
Back to the storm. Last night I watched, for the first time, a full newscast about the upcoming storm. I was inundated with Irene. I knew the storm was coming and I was sure I was prepared. Cat food, kitty litter, water, vodka and ice. What else would we need! Well I woke up at 3:30 this morning in a panic that I was not prepared.
I won't even start about the trip to the grocery store at 7am!
Somewhere in all the "how to prepare for a storm" reading that I caught up on this morning was someone saying that you should us up all the things in your refrigerator that would not last if you lost power. So I get it into my head that I needed to use everything up. You see were this is heading...
I should also add that we have the potential of losing power. We have propane and plenty of food to throw on the grill. But what if we lose power before I can cook dinner tomorrow night and it is pouring rain out?
So here is what I made today... in case I lose power and can't post for awhile, I do like to be prepared!
For dinner tonight to keep up with the clean out the refrigerator idea I used the leftover Tomato-Zuchini Tian to make a pasta dish. I sauteed some Pancetta and added the Tomato-Zuchini Tian and some of that Roasted Cauliflower. Mixed it with some pasta and done!
