Its Fresh

Summer always brings those wonderful exotic fruits and veggies and on the market I can go for hours picking out fresh fruit. The fruit detox for this week contains passion fruit, apples, grapes, strawberries and mango. Throw in a few macadamia, walnuts and apricots kernels (alternative cancer treatment and contains Vitimine B17) and you have a real organic detox that will make your body go WHIIIII of happiness.

Small crumbs

Small crumbs with honey, sugar as sweet and coffee to go,

life is good with those small things, those sweet things

In the summer sun, May is gentle

the water is still and the harbor is glowing.

Baking while travel

I love my baking and while travel on the canals it is perfect to make a cake that’s ready when you come into port. yesterday I made a carrot cake with cream cheese frosting for the coffee together with our friends. It was a success 🙂 I also tried another frosting with some green color but I think that one got yo sweet so i used the lovely cream cheese frosting instead.

Thaifood tonight

Rose and Leif which we sail with at the moment came over and Rose was a Thai food chef and her food is just amazing. She started to cook the most wonderful chicken soup and her food shows up now and then in Happy Six. Almost like we have our own cook as I have not cooked dinner in days now. 🙂 Som tam and some other names I don’t remember, lovely and very spicy.

Breakfast time

What breakfast do you do on board?  I love my coffee and husband his tea.

Fresh oranges so we can press juice is a must on board for us.

Food onboard

I love my galley in the boat and it is great to make food in. My husband asked me when he rebuilt the galley what my request were and I made a list hoping I would get half of the stuff on it. He managed all on the list and a little extra as well. Great stove with a great oven, carbon fiber surface, spice locker, new faucet, automatic light in all lockers when opened as well as led light strip with dimmer and last but not least red lights for the night sailing. When you have a good galley its fun to cook and I always say that no matter if you are tied up to the quay or out sailing you should always allow yourself to eat good food.

Baking is one of my passions and today I made some nice lemon cupcakes with cream cheese frosting and some small breakfast bread with poppy seeds .Pasta is a favorite on board as well as mini pizzas which is great to make and throw in the oven while sailing.

We make all our food our self and avoid half fabricate which mostly just contains Hugh amounts sugar and other bad stuff. So all the below pictures you see is food and baking we do either out sailing or tied  up in port.

Red Red vine…..

Its weekend and I have spent it with our boats neighbors, they are just an amazing couple. Tied up next to them is a pleasure and now when spring comes we can share a bottle of vine or two together. Ended up with a lovely French red vine this weekend.

Cheers! 🙂
