We were trapped inside the house for three days. We were not really affected by the typhoon because our house is elevated about half and a meter above the street though all the roads were already flooded. Some areas were already submerged in waist deep flood. Before even the storm came, I already had predicted the weather and bought supplies good for a week.
When you’re trapped, you could be creative and cook whatever ingredient is available in the kitchen. I cooked chicken soup using San Remo penne without the veggies. I have enough canned goods but these ingredients, vegetables, were not present in my vegetable bin. This morning, as soon as the flood subsided, I went out and bought ingredients for Beef Nilaga. It is still raining as of this pressing and this beef recipe serves as our comfort food in this kind of weather.
