We are often asked what we eat when we are on board. The answer is that we eat very well, as we have lots of time to think about food, as well as the time to prep. So far, we have eaten quite similarly to how we eat at home: a meat, a vegetable and a starch. The biggest difference is that I make much more from scratch now—mostly bread so far, but my second attempt at yogurt was downright good!

- It is difficult to find a ‘baby’ turkey—one that will fit in a boat fridge and/or oven!
- Smoked turkey is YUM, however, there are no gizzards or drippings to make a GREAT gravy
- It is MUCH harder to have everything on the table at the same time when you have an oven the size of most microwaves and only two burners
- Leftovers with no microwave are WAY more difficult!
- NEVER try to make gravy with just chicken broth and flour!
- And most importantly, it doesn't matter where you are or what you eat as long as you are with the ones you love!
