Very hot and sweaty in the galley.  Who knows what’s happening on deck.

Souls on Board

Hello all.  Lauren the steward here. I left dinner prep in Siobhan's competent hands to come tell the outside world not to worry, we are all eating more than we should. If by some bad luck or oversleeping accident you miss a meal, never fear, the next one is only 3 hours away.

Everyday a different student gets to spend the whole day with me in the galley, chopping veggies and baking cookies and keeping the crew happy. They've brought some interesting ideas to the table, and a few things that I liked so much that I'll make for the next crew and continue the legacy of S-267 good eats.  Most notably are the mayonnaise biscuits (I had my doubts too!), the cherry pie bars (what a good use of cherry pie filling!), and the sweetened condensed milk filled chocolate cookie bars.  WOW.  

Don't worry, we do eat more than just baked goods onboard, even though fresh provisions are starting to stretch a little thin. One of the school groups that toured our boat in Kiritimati gifted us 30 fresh coconuts, and we chopped them up after a very sweaty but productive field day yesterday and drank the goodness that is fresh coconut water.  Thank you SPIVY school! Time to jump in and serve dinner, thanks for reading!

Peace and chicken grease,

Thanks Lauren for feeding our kids do well over the past few weeks!  Many of the blogs have touched on your expert culinary skills ... even my own daughter said she didn’t miss my cooking haha
