Raindrops and Rainbows

You can take the Mediterranean diet too far, especially with the wine consumption. The noodles are OK if you are burning up the calories, but otherwise they will put on the pounds. So you are left with antipasto, not much else, salad? Chicken Parm? Yes, the chicken parm is probably in itself pretty [...]

Prejudicial Treatment

The excitement of a new baby in the family had me receiving phone calls from all over. The common denominator is that we talked about the weather and food. That makes me hungry and start planning to cook. Cuddily suggested we go to Sysco in Pocomoke to see what wine selection they had there and also [...]

Cap'n Granpa

The Memorial Day weekend was coming up and it is a big deal in Crisfield as well as most of the rest of the Chesapeake. It is the traditional beginning of the summer season. All the boats are launched or commissioned, lots of activity in the marina, motors started up for the first time in a long time, [...]

Cap'n Overboard

The awful jobs get done last. The Atomic Four was waiting for me to pull off the cylinder head, but there was an emergency job, sort of, the mainsail cover was torn and exposing the sail to U/V, very bad.

Happy Mother's Day

I of course had chicken Parmesan for breakfast on sourdough bread. I have still more in the fridge.

Digging In in Crisfield

The frenzied packing of the rental car was done in about 4 hours. I had organized (ha!) what was to be packed, to be trashed, to be carefully stowed previously, so it was just a matter of grunt work. The vehicle was perfect for the job, a Toyota RAV4, midsize SUV with plenty of storage space when you [...]

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.
