LENTIL MUSHROOM SHEPHERD’S PIE

Captain Francois’ comment about tonight’s supper: “If this is vegetarian, you can make it for me anytime!”  Healthy, meatless and really easy to throw together, I made it stove-top in my Omnia Oven. A little sautéing, a splash of wine and some seasonings. The addition of some greens, then packed into a baking dish, topped with potatoes and in just a few minutes it was […]

CREAMY LEMONY CHICKEN and WILD GRAIN SOUP

I had some leftover grains  and grilled chicken from a recent dinner and had a real craving for some warming rich soup.  Imagine!  It’s mid-May and there have been ‘risk of frost’ warnings and evenings onboard our little water home have been very chilly. Very pleased with the results of this belly-warming soup though… CREAMY LEMONY CHICKEN and WILD GRAIN SOUP 4 servings what you […]

Danes feed it to their kids so would it be that bad for a couple of hearty sailors to indulge in at the start of the day? It was surprisingly good and […]

CORN AVOCADO FRITTERS

I returned recently from a trip to the East coast and found not a whole lot of options in the galley for dinner.  One can of corn niblets and an avocado presented themselves for the perfect vegetarian dinner.  And I had enough little fritters left over for a quick re-heated breakfast the next day. What a resourceful Galley Kat! …but in truth, a very lazy […]

GRILLED STEAK, DRUNKEN MUSHROOMS and BLUE CHEESE ROASTED POTATOES

This was one of those ‘super-suppers-at-anchor’ kind of meals.  A chilly damp day, lots of boat work and two very hungry sailors in need of a hearty dinner.  It was also  collaborative  – my fave way of cooking, sharing the work.  Captain ‘manned’ the grill (steak and potatoes) while I did some serious damage down in the galley (gettin’ the mushrooms drunk). Anyway, it was […]

” A lemon a day…and rum…keeps the scurvy at bay” This is a day to be aware of scurvy, the disease that afflicted many a sailor  on long voyages pre-18th century because of poor diet and Vitamin C deficiencies.
