the dish

 Can we dish?  
Latest news, school is closed for an anticipated onslaught of snow.
No precipitation yet but the forecast predicts a good blast.  Funny how this week, my foodie self has been a bit preoccupied with menus, fresh ingredients and a well stocked pantry. 
Much like a dog who knows when a storm is coming, I guess I have felt the need to be prepared and hide. (under the table)
  Rumor has it that the groceries and gas stations were pretty insane.  Lines and mass panic.   After the last Storm Sandy and being rendered powerless, I guess everyone is amping up and bracing for a blizzard.  Several texts came in yesterday from jealous southerners in want of snow.

Now just take a look at all these cupboards fully stocked with dishes and vessels ready to serve up a storm of guests.

 Ever think of using reclaimed wooden door fronts?  Really adds warmth and soul to this wall pantry.

 Barn door chic to slide open for easy access to shelves of mugs and a many everyday dishes.

 Maybe a transformed pantry stocked with dishes and staples is just the thing one needs to be ready for any storm.
Batteries, Water, canned goods, teas, coffee, matches, and Champagne.  
Yes, even a “splash” of Champagne served certainly adds to the celebration of a snow day.
Are you ready for what is going to be dished out?
Are you ready for the storm?
