At Jost Van Dyke!

It is day 5 of the charter and we are anchored outside of Foxy's bar. I made bacon wrapped scallops with broc and rice for dinner! I par cooked the bacon to make it easier to handle then I wrapped it around the little scallops and poked a toothpic through. I pan seared them in the same pan I cooked the bacon in so it had a nice bacon flavor, I also added a handfull of minced pineapple to the pan for a sweet kinda hawiian flavor. They loved it. I made burgers and hot dogs for lunch today at White bay, easy. Last night we moored in Maho Bay, St. John. That was great because as soon as I was done cleaning up dinner I hopped in the dingy and buzzed over to Maho Bay Camps where my friends live and work and ended up staying the night there in a tent cabin because I can. This morning in woke up and buzzed back to the boat before the guests woke up. :)

What was for dinner last night you ask? Oh just a deeeeelish chicken carbonara pasta and garlic bread. It was so good, I made it from scratch, I am really impressed with myself. The guests loved it and asked if I would make it again next week! Lunch yesterday was curry chicken salad on a toasted baguette with a greek side salad, romaine and iceberg topped with yellow bell peppers, kalmata olives, cherry tomatos and feta cheese crumbles.

I think tomorrow I will try out the pancake adventure again now that I have the tools I need. We are headed to Soper's Hole, Tortola to do some more shopping in the morning then we will head over to Cane Garden Bay, Tortola and anchor for the day and night if it's not too swelly. The waves have been big and the Christmas winds are here so finding a smooth place to spend the night is key. Cane Garden Bay is home to the infamous Bomba's Shack which serves majic mushroom tea during the full moon party every month.

I will write again soon as I can!


  1. So does the Captain like the food?

  2. I wish I was there to try your cooking, everything that you've made sounds great. Glad you are having a good time.

  3. Have you cooked them any of your world famous "meat cakes"? JODADIE

  4. No on the meat cakes, because we don't have muffin tins... but i bought those little foil muffin liners to make my mini cheese cake and key lime pie and stuff in, but the oven is broken, supposed to get it fixed today.

    And no, the captain does not like the food. He doesn't like anything. He doesn't eat vegetables or fruit or fish. He ate a burger yesterday and he eats eggs and bacon for breakfast. gtg

  5. Sounds like the captain needs to cook for himself. If he is a grump then he needs to put some fiber in his diet, if you know what I'm talking about.

  6. He's ok, just like picky. Not like my dad is picky, but like I used to be picky. Like meat, and potates only... only... we are getting along fine though! We had a "crew meeting" today because he was ready to explode, apparently he was rubbed the wrong way by someone and we had to make a rum run. :) We are both feeling much better.
