We had signs posted on our Mail Room and Clubhouse doors for the past few days. The water company will shut everything off between 11 and 1 or 2 today. Of course we all know that anything and everything can cause it to go longer. However, I am very grateful I knew ahead of time.
Preparing for it ahead of time, I put a pea soup in the crock pot overnight. This morning I have already (at 7 a.m.) moved it from the pantry to the kitchen. I ladled it into 4 two-cup containers and 6 one-cup containers, to cool today in the fridge. I have the very meaty ham bone already removed to another bowl where later today I will portion it into the containers. Then, tomorrow, I’ll label and freeze them.
The good thing is that I knew ahead of time, cooked it, and cleaned up any and all breakfast and soup dishes. Now I’ll only have minimal water needs during the shut off.
