Just a quick one today

Just a quick one today

As you know, we try not to have too much food waste. Which means when we get green onions at the store, after we use the tops, we put the white parts with the roots in a cup of water so they can continue to […]

And now, back to your regularly scheduled programming

And now, back to your regularly scheduled programming

I know I haven’t posted a new post in a while. Getting settled in has taken a lot more time and effort than I previously anticipated. And we still aren’t fully settled. Some things still haven’t found a set place on board, which means a […]

Cooking on a Boat

Cooking on a Boat

We spent another 5 days on Intrepid last week. Which meant I got to work on my cooking on a boat. Gotta say, I was pretty happy with how our meals turned out. I have found that I’m less recipe inclined on board. Not sure […]
