My best tip for cooking when snowbound
If you can't get to the store, it's time to raid the pantry and create a meal with what you have.

We’ve had what is called a “French Toast Storm” here in New Jersey. As soon as any significant amount of snow is forecast, people run out to the store and buy bread, eggs and milk. It never fails.
What if you can’t get to the store because of the weather? Feeding the people in your home may become a challenge because you may not have all of the ingredients you need to make your favorite dishes. Here’s my best suggestion in that situation: figure out what ingredients you do have and learn to make something new.
When you have no option but to use what's already in the house, creativity has a chance to thrive. Even if you’re not housebound by the weather, before you run out to buy one ingredient for a dish you always make, try something new while using what you already have on hand.
