October 23- Anchored Off Fox Town

We started the morning with the Move It drill- a sudden rain shower sent everyone scattering to shut all the hatches. The hatch above the port shower did not get shut, so it got a nice clean rinsing. But, the rainbow at the end was worth it!

Yes, yet again Dear Readers, the IPad camera did not do well. But, I did label the rainbow for you!

Now, it's raining all around us. But here, in the isle of LUX, the sun is shining. And, we'll have sweet potato pancakes for breakfast. Our absolutely favorite mix is Bruce's Sweet Potato Pancake Mix. If you can find it, give it a try. They are so yummy!

Last night, we had quite the light show. Lightning was going on all around us. Luckily, the thunder storms didn't find us.

Meanwhile, we had a lovely dinner last night. I found an interesting recipe on the Betty Crocker website. It was for Sauerbraten meatballs! Check it out here:

But, as you know, nothing can be simple on LUX. We have a vegetarian on board. So, I made some meatballs out of Bob's Red Mill TVP. We have folks avoiding red meat. So, I substituted ground turkey for the ground beef. It's too hot here in the islands ( sorry, our Maryland friends) to bake, so we microwaved the lot. And, we served it over mashed potatoes instead of noodles. It was delicious! No pictures, though. We ate it too fast. We were all so hungry after a great day of sailing. Those earlier snacks only cut the edge of the hunger. We were ready for those meatballs.

A final note on the vegetarian meatballs. I stuck close to the original recipe- just substituting TVP for the meat. But, it really needs more egg as a binding agent. I'll need to work on that. However, our own vegetarian did say it was a total yum.
