Well not quite aboard…
still a lot of water to subside before our R.E.D. is ready for another season…
but the Galley Kat is making plans…
Traditional Easter dinners at our house would include
baked ham, all poked with cloves
and covered in pineapple slices and my Mom’s brown sugar glaze
(remember those Good Housekeeping pictures?),
scalloped potatoes (still the best I have ever eaten),
at least 2 or 3 vegetable dishes,
and how many desserts? – fruit pies, cakes, squares, cookies,
not to mention the table’s centre piece with the huge chocolate bunny
surrounded with jelly eggs, little fluffy chicks and colourful Easter grass.
It was all so good and created the best childhood memories
but not the best diet for a child already fueled like the Eveready Bunny.
Easter for the two of us has become simple.
The only sweet treats are for Grandkids
(Francois’ philosophy is ‘Feed them sugar, then send them home’)
So how does the Galley Kat translate a traditional Easter meal
from childhood memories into
onboard fare for two?
Serrano slices = Ham
Creamy cheesy polenta (my recipe link) = Potatoes – sort of
Salad Greens = Cooked Veggies
Crusty Bread = Dinner Rolls
Fresh Figs = Fruit Pie
Some added touches = shave parmesan, olive oil, balsamic vinegar
Oh almost forgot…
the Easter Bunny left us a treat for dessert …
deep dark rich chocolate
EXTREME dark chocolate…
Life is simple for boat people…
Life is good for boat people…
HAPPY EASTER TO YOU ALL!
