Moonflower 3 - Sorry About The Rice
As we approach our 3 week mark at sea (the final day we meal provisioned for), we’re really having to keep a close eye on our gas and water levels, as we have 500 miles and variable winds until St Lucia. This means we are very much entering into the ‘creative’ phase of our cooking…
Imagine a kind of maritime parody of Ready Steady Cook meets the Covid-19 loo roll shortage. Yesterday evening we totted up our dwindling tinned food supplies to see how many different flavoured pasta and rice dishes we could plan until St Lucia.
Things started well with James’ baked bean and sticky rice dish last night, and we have high hopes for Alex’s pesto-humus pasta this evening. However, we are rather hoping we make it to St Lucia before Jake’s ‘custard and anchovy couscous surprise’ is needed.
One thing is for certain though, that first meal out in St Lucia is going to be divine!
