life on a boat: dinner

Now that we have an easy internet connection, I will be doing a series of posts that give a little bit of a description of "life on the boat."  Tonight's post is about our dinner.

Even though we had our first significant cold front passage last night, the temperature was only in the low 50's this evening.  As our Lubbock friends would point out, that hardly qualifies as a cold spell.  It was easily warm enough for grilling in the boat cockpit.  

At the beginning of the summer, we bought a small LP grill at Home Depot for $20.  That has turned out to be the best money that we have spent so far.  Tonight we had grilled jalapeno salmon burgers with sweet potato slices and steamed broccoli with the best malbec that you can find in a box.  All very tasty.

Pardon the blurry picture, the light was low.  This is our dinette table or rather half of it.  The two sides fold down.  Note the fiddle (lip) on the edge of the table.  That is to hold the dishes on the table if table is is tilting to the starboard (right).  If the boat was tilting to the port (left), we would eat on the other side of the table, which also has a fiddle.  Sailors are very clever about these things.

Those sailors were pretty sharp! Did they put an edge like that on the deck to keep fools like me from falling off? Lol supper looks GOOD!
