Before the 2014 “polar vortex” hit, with its interminable cold, snow, ice and wind, my pantry was a source of hilarity.

Friends would wander into my basement and gasp. They snickered. They questioned my sanity.

Or the home of a hoarder. “What do you do with all this food?” and “I see you’re ready for the zombie apocalypse!”
