A quick sailing snack for those days when your out at sea
I’m a recovering workaholic. That being noted, I never had time to cook. Lunches were always sandwiches or pasta salads purchased from a store and dinners were the processed variety. I’d peel off a lid, put the meal in the oven and that was my extent of cooking.
There was absolutely no creativity in my food consumption
I was hungry and I would find anything that didn’t require any effort. Sadly, I did the same for my family.
Now that we live on a boat and there’s no such thing as convenience food, I’ve had to learn how to prepare quick, easy and good tasting snacks. Furthermore, I try to stay up on the cockpit rather than go below due to my sea sickness issues. You’ll usually find me preparing carrot and cucumber sticks in the morning and when I feel ambitious, I’ll boil up some potatoes and eggs for a potato salad.
During lunch time, especially when we’re sailing, I like to have easy, but nutritious food, ready to eat
That being said, I was super happy when our esteemed guest from Italy, Admiral Stefano, came up from the galley with this tasty snack.
All you need to do is cut some fresh bread, add some cheese, lemon peal and an olive to the top. When I saw the lemon peal I thought, ‘well that’s interesting…’ And after one bite I was happy to carry on eating the whole plate. This snack requires no olive oil, salt or pepper either. It is what it is – simplicity at its best!
As usual, it’s the easy things that often taste so good!
