MAY ROUND-UP

MAY ROUND-UP

My goodness this month went fast!   We’ve been so busy dividing our time amongst getting the boat ready for her spring splash, preparing for guests and tending to getting our new-to-us gardens cleaned up that it’s left little time for anything else. I did take the time though to put together a list of your favourite Galley Kat recipes for the month of May. Simply click on the caption of each image for the recipe link. First way at…

THE BOOZY REINDEER

THE BOOZY REINDEER

Twas the night before Christmas and all through the kitchen, Galley Kat used the vodka but only a smidgen. OK so I may not be hired to write for greeting cards. We’ve reached the cocooning phase of the holidays when candles are lit and the oven is fired up to the max to cook a tasty pizza. We made this terra cotta heater a couple of years ago for the boat but I’m still hesitant to bring something so breakable…

ROASTED CRANBERRY CHAMPAGNE COCKTAIL MIXER

I suppose for most of you the holiday party season is in full swing. In my land galley, we have been busy planning and preparing to receive Captain’s family en masse. Our current count 35. It has been really hard for me to break away from tiny galley, tiny living habits, even though for the next few months I have actual counter top space, a real refrigerator and freezer, and hot and cold running water making preparing meals so easy….

CAPTAIN COOKS: Grilled Blood Orange Whiskey Cocktails

CAPTAIN COOKS: Grilled Blood Orange Whiskey Cocktails

Time to fire up that barbecue Galley Peeps.. …but a little warning should accompany this delicious recipe from the Captain… The obvious, 1. if on the water make sure you are safely at anchor for the day. The not so obvious, 2. if on the water and back at the dock, the aroma of oranges on the grill may bring forth guests for cocktails, it was that intoxicating. and… 3. if on land camping or RV-ing, #2 above may apply…

MY BOOZIE BEDREST BIRTHDAY

MY BOOZIE BEDREST BIRTHDAY

March 21st, 1950, a momentous day 65 years ago, the first full day of spring, Vernal Equinox, ….the beginning of my existence. Putting that in writing, it sounds SO old! Have to share a little story with you… Several years ago now, my grandson asked my then son-in-law how old he was… Answer: “29” My granson’s response: “Woo, you’re almost dead!” Moving on from that mental image, I don’t feel old and isn’t that what’s important? Happy, feeling great, comfortable…
