ASIAN CHICKEN and CABBAGE SALAD

ASIAN CHICKEN and CABBAGE SALAD

Spending as much time as we do on the boat, economy becomes a huge focus: Economy of efforts (streamlining the chores so we can be spending more time enjoying sailing) Economy of scale (keeping our enviromnment small and simple as the less we have, the less that needs our attention) Economy of resources (anyone who has spent any amount of time on a boat or in an RV knows how important conserving energy output is. There’s also water conservation, and…

LIME SHRIMP with UDON NOODLE

LIME SHRIMP with UDON NOODLE

This next recipe came about after a long day on the water when all I wanted to do was pour a glass of wine and kick back a bit.  You know those days when you ask your significant other what they would like for dinner and all you get is ‘surprise me’.  So I poured that wine and thought and came up with a tasty winner. So easy too.  Just a few ingredients: quick cooking shrimp, some udon noodles and…

SHRIMP and SWEET POTATO CURRY

SHRIMP and SWEET POTATO CURRY

Several weeks ago now, my eldest son, his beautiful wife and their darling newest addition to the family visited us. As with most of our get-togethers it was all too brief so we packed in as much quality time as possible.  Those moments, both past and present, when we are gathered together for meals, are what so many great family memories are made of and the meal that my daughter-in-law made for us one particular evening will remain as one…

DRAGON SAUCE

DRAGON SAUCE

Got another good one for you Galley Peeps.  It’s one of those really versatile Asian-inspired sauces that work well with meats, seafood, fish, with pasta or rice and is far too easy to make and has evolved from many trials to my now ‘tried and true’ formula. Tonight I did the full meal deal and made it fresh,  then made some breaded chicken nuggets, braised fresh bok choy and serve with some pressure cooker jasmine rice.  I mean, really, three…

FURIKAKE GRILLED TUNA

FURIKAKE GRILLED TUNA

We were recently gifted with some tuna from our sailing/fishing friends and wanted to put together something worthy of their generosity. In my search, I landed on what looked like a winner from The Domestic Man.  Simple, very quick to prepare and cook, plus I was introduced to a new-to-me seasoning, Furikake, a combination of sesame seeds and nori seaweed.  Well, I thought to myself, I can make my own, which is what I did. All this to say, my…
