HALIFAX DONAIR PIZZA

HALIFAX DONAIR PIZZA

The trouble with setting goals is that you’re constantly working toward what you used to want.” According to Sarah Manguso author of 300 Arguments.  No wonder my goal-setting isn’t working out for me these days. My mind is a pinball machine this week.  ‘Ping’…change direction….’Ping’…there I go again…’Ping’…oooh, I think I’ll try that! Someone mentioned Donair Pizza and all of a sudden I was craving….you guessed it…Donair Pizza. ‘Ping’ Halifax Donair meat One loaf for slicing now.  One loaf to…

APPLESAUCE MEATLOAF

APPLESAUCE MEATLOAF

Ah, the versatility of the lowly meatloaf! So many ways to dress it up.  So many different ways to season.   It shows up quite often in my galley, providing variety, using different types of meats and oh, those leftovers.  The one pictured below gave up the basics with slices of bacon-wrapped deliciousness, followed by meatloaf sandwiches the next day and a bonus day of meatloaf and potato soup. Recipe here The next one, up to now, has been Captain’s…

DECONSTRUCTED EGG ROLLS with SWEET and SOUR SAUCE

DECONSTRUCTED EGG ROLLS with SWEET and SOUR SAUCE

More and more I’m appreciating the beauty of using my pressure cooker.  A little sauté time and one minute under pressure and bang we were ready to eat.  In fact, it took less time than making the sweet and sour sauce and that took just five minutes. I kept half the cabbage slaw to add after pressure to give a little extra crunch to the mixture. We do love egg rolls but that we could enjoy these minus the extra…

STOVE TOP MEATZA PIE

STOVE TOP MEATZA PIE

Starting at the beginning of this month Captain and I began our annual food consumption reset.  I don’t like calling it a diet although to some it will seem severely restricting which in my mind is what some diets seem to be all about.  The Whole30 plan is meant primarily for people who have dietary issues such as gluten or dairy or other intolerances.  We have none that we are aware of and since we don’t, I’m not comfortable about…

STUFFED CHIABATTA

STUFFED CHIABATTA

Being able to make meals a little in advance is a real plus in my little galley.  When it comes times to eat most of the prep mess has been cleaned up and I can kind of pretend that someone else has prepared it for me…kind of.  I live a lot in my imaginary world. These yummy stuffed breads are such a meal. Prep, wrap and clean-up and when the time comes just pop them on the barbecue.  They make…

HALIFAX DONAIR

HALIFAX DONAIR

I came across a social media discussion about donairs the other day, which in turn led me down a rabbit hole of wonder and confusion. The first thing I learned was that not everyone knows what a donair is. A recent call from a Montreal friend greeted me with: ‘Hey there Sea Salt Galley Kat. What have you been up to?’ I told her that I had just taken my Donair meat out of the oven. ‘What’s a donair? Never…

CAPTAIN’S FAVOURITE MEATLOAF

CAPTAIN’S FAVOURITE MEATLOAF

Really…meatloaf is meatloaf is meatloaf… but I have to admit this one was really tasty! The addition of spicy Italian sausage meat (mild is fine too) and sun-dried tomatoes turned this every day meal into something special. This makes a a lot – could easily serve 6 hungry sailors so I cooked half in my Omnia Stove Top Oven (keeping with this blog focus) and the other half in a traditional land oven to stash away in the freezer for…

UNSTUFFED STUFFED PEPPERS

UNSTUFFED STUFFED PEPPERS

One of our condo neighbours who has a community garden donated a whole sack of green peppers to the hungry sailor cause. I froze some in our ‘dirt galley’ (what I call our soon-to-be-winter-land-kitchen). (easy to do – just cut up, vacuum seal and pop in the freezer) Since my Unstuffed Cabbage Rolls (pressure cooker method) were such a success I thought, why not unstuff some of those peppers?…     UNSTUFFED STUFFED PEPPERS (adapted for a 2 quart pressure…
