American Legion Post

The grand plan to move Roughrider Lynn’s boat kind of evaporated with the approach of low pressure and a gale. We will have to wait for the storm to go through and try again in a few days. This is remarkable weather with strong NE winds, which would be right on the nose, all week. The weather report [...]

Urban Sailor

Now that my Coleman Camp Grill was operational I could grill a steak on it. I was duped into buying a family pack of 2 steaks, “manager special”, t-bone, actual price was around $6.91/lb., normal price $12.99/lb. Great bargain? Not. My favorite steak, NY Strip, was on sale at $6.99/lb. and boneless. [...]

Ode to Eve

I awoke on board SUNSPLASH in the marina. I don’ remember how I managed to return from the dinner party at Eve’s house. My bicycle was here and to get into the marina I had to enter a code in the lock. There were extra groceries in the fridge and a box of “Taco Kit”. OK, now I remember some [...]

Beware the Ides

It took me a couple of days to recover from overdoing it on the bicycle. I was sore and stiff. I ran out of wine and then ran out of cheese. The next morning was a ham and cheese sandwich without the cheese. Then it was an egg sandwich the next day, the bread was now gone. I was not starving but [...]

Feast-ival

I was growing antsy being cooped up for days of wind and rain. I ran out of bread and made fried rice for breakfast using the ingredients of ham and cheese omelet in the fried rice. I spiced it with some of the chicken mole. Yummy. I ran out of wine and snuck out to the local wine store right outside [...]

Lil' Honda

I made another batch of pollo en coloradito mole and brown rice. I used 4 skinned chicken thighs and mole paste, salsa, and water in 1/3 cup portions. The rice had plenty of chicken stock in it, so I didn’t need stock to make the mole sauce. The chicken thighs were simmered in the sauce for an hour [...]

Steak Salad by the Pond

Cap'n Chef Andy | Like Summer, in March
The rain came overnight after 30 knot winds blew things around in the boatyard. I had secured everything and covered any stuff outside the boat. The space next to me was now vacant, the old World Cat that had sat there for years was now launched after a long refurbishment by Houston the tattoo artist.
.
I remained huddled inside the galley watching Saturday morning cartoons, no need to go out in the rain. I did go to the pilothouse, aft, to get breakfast supplies out of the fridge. There were downpours and lulls. After the deluge was over, the sun came out. The no-see-ums also came out. So I remained indoors, writing.
.
We had had another nice meal at Southern River Walk and when the bill came I was surprised that the alternative wine was much higher priced than my usual, which they were out of. They had assured me that the replacement would cost the same. After recalculating the bill they gave me a $25 gift card.
.
The no-see-ums had disrupted our steak and salad event at the stone table near the woodshop. I now had steak and salad in the fridge, but where could we gather without the bugs? Maybe a beachside park on Amelia Island.
.
Eloisa arrived from her daily wanderings with Blue her black cocker. I had texted her “I have 2 zip loks of salad, 2 steaks, 2 forks, 2 plates, 2 chef knives, and my balsamic vinaigrette dressing”. She took me to Notter’s Pond where the sign says, “No Dogs” and “No Alcohol”, among other no-no’s. She set up a small child’s table with purple legs and two beach chairs. It was an excellent place to have a steak salad picnic.
.
A fellow who had met us before in this park on his Honda Goldwing motorcycle came by again and chatted. We were now out of wine. We packed up and left to go to Southern River Walk where I could buy more wine with my gift card. How nice.
.
Eloisa said she would be returning to South Florida where she could get the coconut fronds she needs to weave more birds and other items such as fish and lightning bolts. We had had a great time over the past couple of weeks.
