Hurricane Recipes!

This weekend was a “hurricane”! You remained calm and refused to overreact, right? False, you totally flipped your lid and bought 234 of every non-perishable item at Gristedes. First of all, you should have gone to Food Emporium, and second, what do we do with all this stuff now that the hurricane AND the MTV VMAs are over? Let me Martha Stewart you through some delectable adventures in using up the rest of all your refrigeration-defying snacks.

HURRICANE TIRAMISU

1. Slice Wonder bread into elegant wedges.

2. Layer in bowl with delicate spoonfuls of Nutella.

3. Drizzle with old coffee from that cup you got at the bodega and forgot about.

GAZPACHO

1. Open jar of Ragu.

2. Mix in Tostitos salsa (medium) for spiciness.

2. Yum!

PEANUT BUTTER TWINKIE SANDWICH

1. Slice Twinkie length-wise, taking care not to disrupt cream filling.

GIRLS JUST WANT TO HAVE FONDUE

1. Melt huge, gross brick of Velveeta (why did you buy that what were you thinking etc.)

2. Add can of Genessee Cream Ale for flavor.

“IRENE SO FAR AWAY” COCKTAIL

GO-BAG SNACK CORNUCOPIA
