I hate snow related panic buying. Between the people who grab 5 gallons of milk than return 4, people asking for snow related clothing we never had, parents desperate for sleds and the people who need a snow blower even though we rarely get above a dusting. Then the next day when most places are closed sans the local Walmart and the board people who have nothing else to do come in and tell anyone whose working it's a shame that you have to be here on a day like this.

Flew in on the last plane before the big blizzard hit.  The cat sitter has run out of litter, taken lots of "samples" home.

Went to Costco.  The lot was surprisingly not crowded.  Filled up and came home to see all the local grocery stores on the news -- shelves bare.

Never could figure out where all that bread, milk, and eggs went -- in the next week where the roads finally got plowed and the grocery store parking lots got rid of all the piles of snow blocking parking.

You accept returned milk?!? I worked at a grocery store for 5 years, never once dealt with a returned milk, had a few leaky or dropped gallons that we swapped out for folks but never one where someone bought it, took it home, and then returned it. I'm pretty sure it would have been destroyed if they had, too much chance it was not kept at proper temps to risk reselling.

That's like returning fruit, Kramer.  No one returns fruit.

Here in the frozen north we get major snowstorms several times a year. I never understood the panic buying because we have the infrastructure to get the roads cleared pretty quickly. Typically schools and businesses are closed for no more than one day. Anyone who doesn't have enough food in the house to feed the family for a day or two eats out way too often.

I really think it is something deep in the lizard portion of our brain that kicks in and overpowers logic.

I fantasize about going to the store right before a storm and loading my cart up with all the dandruff shampoo or dish detergent or other random item in hopes of inspiring a crazed frenzy.

So the Pioneer Woman has this Panko crunchy French toast recipe.

I rarely make it, because it's super filthy. But damn it's amazing.

I tried one with frosted flakes and honey, it was tasty but line between done and burnt to a crisp was way too narrow so I went back to making my take on Alton Brown's recipe I grabbed ages ago.

I do not think people panic buy over snow where I live.  Maybe they do and I do not notice it.  Is it a southern thing?  It sounds like a southern thing because they lack the infrastructure to move snow and are generally unfamiliar with snow.

I only eat Freedom Toast!

So with the current maple syrup supply chain issues, I have just one question: is bourbon an acceptable substitute as far as french toast is concerned?
 
2021-11-30 2:02:37 PM  
there may be a snow storm that last for 2 days.  i need two weeks of food to go with the months of food i already have...
 
2021-11-30 2:07:39 PM  
the only snow related purchases im making this week is some insulated wellies and a clutch disc for my new ( to me) snowthrower. bright, sunny, and warm even though ski season opens this weekend...

I'd like to thank Vic DiBitetto for cracking me up every snowy season with our bread, milk and eggs obsession. Now, we have the French Toast Snow Storm Alert System. I'll be laughing all winter long.

Bourbon, honey, and cream instead of milk works pretty well in my experience.

There are three major maple syrup delivery methods. Best is French toast, followed closely by waffles, and finally but also acceptable are pancakes.

Facts.

Try this Cap'n Crunch French Toast. It is very rich so we only make it on rare occasions but it is fantastic. Put the cooked toast into the oven to keep warm. Also, serving it with browned butter and real maple syrup instead of the fruit and whopped cream is totally acceptable.

Here in bourbon country in Kentucky, we like our maple syrup aged in Bourbon barrels, so it gets that smoke taste.

Sounds good, but there's one important detail: neither my wife nor myself is tempted to eat the rest of the box of Panko in one sitting after that recipe is made...

"Please pass the French toast," Tom said surreptitiously.
 
2021-11-30 3:33:37 PM  
I just don't understand.  Storm coming??  It should be cans of chili and beer.   And I like a little maple syrup in my glass of rye   One large ice cube though.

Why would a store accept a return for milk except for special circumstances?

No spiced rum?

Add spiced rum to the egg/custard mix. Cook the French Toast longer to cook out the alcohol.

You'll thank me for it.

/also works with amaretto

We had a push over front end manager.

I live a mile from a Kwik Trip. If I am unable to get there that means a there are more problems than a couple feet of snow.

Harvey Leonard's the man but Barry Burbank races motorcycles so he is also the man.

Also, try maple syrup mixed with milk. Bourbon optional as always.

For added syrup opportunities, use it and some chopped pecans on oatmeal.

Inferior to the items listed above, but more commonly served in my house.

I live 3 blocks from a DinoMart. If you told Oklahomans that you walked to that store they'd look at you like you're some kind of superhuman.

I've been known to use butter and maple syrup in grits =)

The closest Kwik Trip is 5 miles, but there are 3 of them within that radius. I have a Piggly Wiggly less than a mile away. I have been known to put on my snowshoes and head to the Pig just because.
