Arriving from work today I noticed that the clocks were blinking again, so we lost power for a time today, as well. Kinda freaked me out, but never mind.
When the power went down during Part 1 of the Blizzards of 2010 I thought it would be for a few hours - at most. Never dreamed it would be out for days. Anyway, while suffering through extreme cold temperatures for two nights I had to rig up some way to make a warm meal. No camp stove or even a fondue set, but I had an idea, and this is the final solution to my problem.
Crystal wine glasses, an oven rack, a large candle, and small saucepan. Heated stew, soup, and leftover chicken and mushrooms which were devoured with copious amounts of bread, salad, and crackers on the side.
