Of BABY BUBBLES and AVOCADO TOAST

This post isn’t so much about the recipe but more about the occasion. …the occasion of my daughter and grandson’s visit. So many adjectives describe this bubble blowing bundle of cuteness but the pictures will speak for themselves. So many adjectives describe my daughter: at the very least, confident, health conscious and organized. She was happy to take over meal prep and I was more than happy to let her. Our leisurely morning meal consisted of her version of Avocado…

PINEAPPLE CREAM CHEESE BREAD PUDDING

PINEAPPLE CREAM CHEESE BREAD PUDDING

On good sailing days, breakfast onboard R.E.D. is usually really simple. Getting an early start to catch the best wind is the priority, so quick and dirty – eat, wash up and untie the lines is the way we go.
