Cleaning the kitchen

The reality of getting ready for cruising has started to sink in. Today I spent several hours cleaning the kitchen and inventorying the contents. Deep down in one locker I found some food from Tenerife. Even though the packages were all sealed tight I decided not to risk it so off it went. But what I found most interesting is the number of excess pots and pans I have accumulated over time. It seems that each new crew member didn't find the storage so went out and purchased another pot or pan. Of course a couple of them have been good cooks so I presume that you need some extra cooking pans to prepare more than simple meals.

Since I am solo most of the time my cooking is very simple. This makes for quick but boring meals. One problem (that has nothing to do with being on a boat) is that one has to purchase very small quantities of food or it goes bad. Fortunately my refrigerator has been (finally) working OK. This has given me a little more flexibility. But I note that the transition from having a crew of 3 aboard or doing long transit to having easy access to a food store is quite remarkable.

Fair winds and following seas :)
