The weekly food shop, the bane of most folks weeks . How to feed a family with varied palates and preferences and not cave and do five Spag Bols!!
Our thanks to chef Cormac from the National for his expertise with our meal plan.
You learn that thick skinned fruit and veg lasts longer than thin, bananas ripen everything so buy green and keep separate , store everything separately as mould spreads, only wash veg you can dry, don't cut anything. Store in cool dark places and check fresh stuff daily. Tins, dried and jars are king , fresh fruit and veg a treat.
Four of us filled four trolleys to the brim doing a top up shop yesterday .🛒🛒🛒🛒!!
Failed in the pharmacy by Google translate for seasick meds, I happily made a fool of myself miming someone vomiting in a boat. It got laughs in the queue and the pharmacist instantly knew what I was after.
Next issue is storing your food . In a boat under the floor and the seats is your larder. Your underwear drawer can get commandeered too!! Of course you then need to remember where everything is. WHERES WALLY??!
We've decided to follow James and Amanda's healthy and sustainable example and go veggie. Poor mister meat and two veg Andrew is like a rabbit stuck in the headlights !
We're enjoying the flavours and feeling good about eating well. Andrew had a salad for breakfast. I nearly fell overboard 😄.
I hear the engine running. We're pushing off for the las Perlas . I'd better sign off and make myself useful on deck.
