Re: What is Your Favorite Dish to Make at Anchor?

There are some basic food groups which your body cannot live without. One of them is guacamole. Here's a great recipe:

Couple of ripe avocados mashed
1/2 medium sized onion finely chopped
1 clove garlic crushed
diced pickled jalapeno peppers (how much? - how spicy do you like your guacamole? You have to sort of taste your way there - jalapenos differ in strength also)

Mix all the above well, then add a firm tomato cut into small pieces. stir, but be careful not ruin the tomatoes texture.

Serve with tortilla chips - the salted kind, not the ones with artificial flavor (they ruin the good taste of the guacamole).

Beer tastes good with this - margaritas taste better.

Margaritas (the 1-2-3 step recipe)
1 glass with salt around the edge
lots of ice cubes (NOT crushed)
in a blender pour:
1 shot triple sec liquor
2 shots tequila
3 shots lime juice

blend well, pour over ice, put a wedge of lime in for good looks.

ONly problem with the above is you really can only make them in pitchers. Which means you drink more of them, then need to make more. The guacamole makes you thirsty and you will make even more

But by then who cares?

Roast pork, with crackling (or chicken if no pork with the rind available)
Roast potatoes
Spring greens
Apple sauce
Stuffing balls

Simple, easy and delicous. Just choose your ingredients wisely.

With luck they'll be enough chicken left over to make a paella. Left over bones into stock for the soup you'll make with the left over veg.

Cold roast pork for your lunch sandwich.

Re: What is Your Favorite Dish to Make at Anchor?

After a long sail, a simple dinner is best. Our favorite is beans and franks with fresh home made tortilla's. I keep a roll of flour tortilla dough in the ref and when we want a fresh tortilla just pluck off some dough and roll out and cook. Simple, quick, hot and filling.

Re: What is Your Favorite Dish to Make at Anchor?

We really like to stick with one pot meals at sea. A good gumbo with fish of the day is always good, and can just slowly cook for a long time if ya need to have do so! We love beans, so red beans and rice are high up on our list! also white beans with an old ham hock are not to shabby either! We use an old single burner swivel stove, when the weathers bad, works great for stews and gumbos and such. when it really gets bad we resort to the old stand by sangwitchs! LOL and coffee (can't live without GOOD COFFEE) we pretty much eat the same as we would ashore !
