Missing breastfeeds at 8 months. Will my milk supply recover?

My daughter is 8 months old and for the last month has been being breastfed with top-up formula feeds (advised my doctor after she dropped a few percentiles in weight) and three solid meals a day. I'm back at work so breastfeeding roughly 2-3 times a day and it seems to be ok. My problem is she's staying with her grandmother over night for two nights in a row because of the snow and we'll miss all our feeds during this time, will my milk supply recover when I only feed her twice a day on average anyway?

How about expressing milk in between then this way it shouldn't dry up! You can freeze breast milk
