I wasn’t very prepared for the storm. I didn’t have enough food or other essentials. On the second day of the hurricane, I started to become a little concerned. With the storm raging outside, I felt like eating something warm and comforting. I had just enough sugar, flour, baking soda and molasses (to my surprise), ginger, cloves and cinnamon spice to make some ginger cookies. My friend Sara had given me a simple reicpe. So, around midnight (I’ve found that I like baking late at night. That’s another story.), I baked my ginger cookies. I love chewy ginger cookies and mine came out that way. Perfect! It was a good thing I was able to go food shopping after the storm, otherwise our meals would have consisted of ginger cookies — for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. I’m very grateful the storm is over.
