I used to have an old rubber apron from Chemistry class that I wore in the galley, till Jim took over the cooking.

Proteus Rising, there are other discussions on CF about this, but many of the dishes you cook in a slow cooker can be cooked in a pressure cooker on board; and, unlike other pots and pans, if the lid is secured, spillage will be limited to what can get out that tiny vent hole. [We have two aboard]. To mimic the slow cooker, some people bring the pot to pressure, and turn it off. And let the stuff cook from the residual heat. Then bring back up to pressure, if it needs another go around. Make sure your stove is either gimbaled, or has "pot holders", s/s gizmos that hold the pot on the stove. Fixed stoves usually also will have a rail around the perimeter that will accept "pot holders". Probably Fisheries Supply has them if your boat lacks them.

Re: Shake-Out Cruise Provisioning...

Thanks again everyone for your input. We're starting to find our galley rhythm along with our sea legs.

After the shake-out, which went fabulously -- if not even more exhausting than I already thought, we've already been out again several times and even anchored overnight. I don't know how anyone would think you just buy a sailboat and sail away...

Regardless, all your suggestions helped SO MUCH so we didn't have to stress about food and could just FUEL up and keep learning. And that we did!

Sunday we leave for a week out and about. Whee!

We're still currently in E.W.T. (Excited while Terrified) stage; but, being on the fresh water side of the Sound, we have to lock through to do anything. THAT has been an even steeper learning curve than anyone would expect at this juncture. But, we're becoming pros already.

Much gratitude for all your input -- even the non-galley stuff. That was gold! And so many gems. My inner pirate is delighted.
