"How can a nation be great if its bread tastes like Kleenex?" ~ Julia Child

The National Weather Service has forcasted a major ice storm event for most of Arkansas for the next two days. I got back from WalMart about one and a half hours ago. I think every young mother with her pre-school kids and every blue-haired old lady (mine is gray, thank you very much) with her unwilling husband were there.

Luckily, I was not shopping for milk or bread. By the time I arrived, the pickings were very slim; only skim milk was left and a few loaves of faux-whole wheat bread.

I have always wondered what these people make with all that bread and milk. Bread pudding? French toast? That's all I can think of. Not me. I was there for apples, buttermilk (abundant because it's not necessarily desirable for baby bottles, coffee or bread pudding), dog food and avocados.

No, I'm not making anything with dog food. The dog food is really for the dog. Tonight's menu is Tuscan Soup and Apple-Buttermilk Custard Pie, neither of which I've posted recipes for on my food blog, Terri's Table. Tomorrow night, Tom is making a Chicken Tortilla Soup.

We are set for at least a few days.
