Re: Comfort Foods

To the OP...know what you mean, as a transplanted Canuck here , it took several years to figure out all the things I could n't get here and then how to get it..Peameal(realcanadianbacon.com), Habitant soup(buy the peas online- make it and freeze), Buckleys(CVS- they keep it behind the counter, and can order it), butter tarts (make them, or find a Tim Hortons in cities that have hockey teams , ie: Detroit, Buffalo, Columbus,Erie), Neocitrin (online or bring it back after a visit), Ketchup chips for the girls(forget it), Swiss Chalet sauce (online)etc, etc..anyway brings up an interesting point

For those cruisers out there, do you stock up on these 'vital' pieces of home ? Or just figure it out? Or save the treats for a trip home? Sorry for the thread drift this will cause....

You'll find out that over time your tastes will change and that going back to the old stuff will be just b/c you have remembered, especially if you travel into different cultures.

Alot of great suggestions here.
Going to have to try alot of these new recipes.
One thing for certain..
Food always tastes better on a boat

My wife ordered me Back Bacon from Alberta a couple of X-mas's ago.I believe it had cost her about $66 for 2 lbs,but even at $33 lb,it was money well spent
Haven't had a Timmie's coffee in a very long time,do miss my double double's

Much appreciated for all the great ideas..
Keep'em coming...

@HopCar,we'll stop by soon as I need to get some supplies and hit Anchor for some parts I ordered.

Re: Comfort Foods

Timmie's coffee ? Good grief ! aaaaaaarrrgghhh !

Get yourself a french press and start trying some of the better Italian blends. Their two best exports are coffee and bunga bunga parties. I can't help with the bunga bunga invitations but can help with the coffee.

Start with Illy to establish a standard then try something more reasonably priced such as Segafredo, Kimbo or Lavazza. Buy the 200g bricks of whichever one you prefer. They last for 2 years or thereabouts so I usually get 50 at a time.

Re: Comfort Foods

A lot of really good recipes here, I'll be taking some down. I just cannot do sardines, they represent bait, for me to catch a nice tasting fish.
As far as the farts go, better out than in!

Re: Comfort Foods

Fresh sardines are deeelicious. Slit the guts and clean with a spoon. Rinse in salt water. Pan fry whole with a little olive oil 1 - 2 minutes per side. Serve with a big wedge of lemon

YUM !

Re: Comfort Foods

For Americans, turkey and dressing is a comfort food. So is pot pie. Here's a one-dish recipe I just tried on some onetime liveaboards and it was a bit hit. Line a pie pan with pastry. Whip an egg, fold in 2 cups bread stuffing and 2 cups turkey chunks (canned is OK). Bake until pastry is toasty and filling is set. Let stand, cut in wedges. One pie serves 4 to 6.

Re: Comfort Foods

mines is definitely a fry-up, sailing in cold waters, theres nothing better on the second day at sea ( ps I never try it the first 24 hours), bacon,( smoked back if possible ) sausage, black and white pudding (look it up) a tomato and a nice free range egg, yum, only 250,000 calories, but boy is it good.

Re: Comfort Foods

"comfort foods" = a psychological excuse for continuing to eat things that are fattening.

Re: Comfort Foods

I do not eat when time dictates it. I eat when my body asks for it. That is at max 2 times per day, when sailing sometimes in the middle of the night when the cold eats my calories.
My boat is still in the water and I just spend a weekend in the bare cold because I did not install my heater yet. Nasi Goreng, is light and not fattening.
Eating is a way of self-discipline.

Re: Comfort Foods

Blue Bell is so good. Their Cookies 'N Cream is my favorite out there. Ice Cream is definitely one of my favorite (possibly abused) comfort foods. Ben and Jerry's is at the top of the list, particularly Chubby Hubby.

Anyone ever try making there own ice cream while on a voyage?

Yes. We make ice cream. We use a blue ball manual ice cream maker. We let it roll around the cockpit while we sail. Or we play catch with it at anchor.
