Daily minutiae

Micro details…..

So the other day I made a reference that we were down to the micro details of this trip and I felt that there would be little interest but “au contraire Pierre” (pee-air; the dehydrated Frenchmen) lots of folks chimed in that they were in fact interested in the day-to-day stuff we deal with.

We get questions like “do you guys eat”?  To which we are not sure how to react?!  “Uh… no we DON’T eat, we’re on a 6 month fast!!”  WTF?  So eating is sometimes a challenge due to what is available, the desire to cook, we eat too many snacks at happy hour so getting motivated to cook can be problematic too.  Now breakfast is always met with enthusiasm.  I read once eat breakfast like a King, lunch like a Prince, and dinner like a pauper.  That’s one we adhere to.  Breakfast comes in two varieties; hot or cold rations.  Alek coined this term last August when he visited when we gave him cereal one morning, i.e. cold rations.  Well here’s “cold rations”.

Cold rations are based on cereal and yogurt (the cold part) with fresh fruit.  Patricia does tea or coffee and I do espresso with milk so a cappucino/latte or whatever they call it at Starbucks.

There is generally toast with butter, peanut butter, and jams.  Now hot rations follow the basic menu of drinks, toast, fruit, jams etc but are supplemented with eggs and crumbled sausage.  In some cases I make pancakes or French toast with either my bread or the Bahamian coconut bread (both make awesome French toast but different textures and flavors).

Well that’s breakfast at the daily level.  We never go out to eat breakfast here, we did quite a few times while living on the boat in Maryland in September.  Just no place to go here.

Here’s yesterday’s dinner; so we do in fact eat.  This was fish tacos (unnamed  fish caught recently) with cole slaw, guacamole and tortillas and a beer to wash it down.

    Looks delish…..we used the same coffee pot on our Cat we rented 2 years ago this week….yikes time flies so fast….I am going to steal your ” eating saying”……….

    • Beth you are not stealing anything from me….I heard or read it somewhere else so can’t take credit, please feel free to use it. I think Patricia has catamaran envy for sure. Just a larger more stable platform for living down here. Glad you’re dropping by, thanks for the comments.
