Amy Eddings: What To Do While Waiting Out Irene? Bake!

Saturday, August 27, 2011 - 11:48 PM


Governor Andrew Cuomo suggested enjoying one's family and getting "a good book" to wait out Hurricane Irene.

WQXR's Naomi Lewin has a better idea. Bake! And then, EAT.

She sent me a picture of a pie she made while listening to me host special Hurricane Irene coverage Saturday night on WNYC. She didn't tell me what kind of pie it was.  It looks peachy to me.  And are those walnuts in the crumble topping?

It's midnight, she's asleep, and I'm buzzing with "on air" energy and jonesing for some pie.I had some tea instead. Time to get some sleep myself. Irene's depths have yet to be plumbed.

While waiting out the storm in the Mount Airy section of Philadelphia, Pa., I slow roasted a large pan of chicken wings, smothered in honey barbecue sauce. Then I made a loaf of homemade yeast bread, followed by a pot of tea. The salad wasn't prepared by my younger daughter until Sunday afternoon. My oldest daughter prepared a large pot of pasta, for the spaghetti dinner we'll have, probably tomorrow. We never lost power, and God blessed us to make it through - just a little wet. I was a bit concerned about Jamaica-Queens, New York, and my loved ones at New Greater Bethel Ministries. We kept all of you in our prayers, and believed God for your safety as well. Lets continue in prayer, because the season isn't over yet. Keep baking!

I baked all day and plan to do more tomorrow. It's very calming.
