Bob - I like your style! I do love a good steak - blue please.
I think about the basics - own salad dressings, big shop on condiments when I am near a decent port, but try and grow sprouts and greens. I used to be able to buy mushroom trays in Oz - not sure if I can get them elsewhere. One of the tricks of charter
was to wash all veges in water with a smidge of bleach, drain and wrap in paper towels - could even keep broccoli over a week. Not ashamed of canned stuff when necessary but love wandering the markets for fresh stuff wherever I am in the world. Okay right now Africa
, but certianly did this whilst cruising. I used to wonder why people were hung up on Oreos and 'stuff' they knew from home. I have had fun shopping
in Dominican Republic
- not always knowing what I was buying
but the label looked okay. Some of the eventual meals
were interesting but that is part of the fun. Have even brewed my own beer
and wine but must admit a bit too lazy to do that now. Coffee - if I have to have one luxury it is real coffee - when I fly to the boat this time my bag will have good African coffee plus some good African spices.
