Not a fail

Last evenings dinner was not a total hit. The black bean salsa I had in my mind to be more of a salad but the flavor was not sharp enough. Not enough garlic is my thought. We had it today for lunch with chips and it was better but still there was a flavor layer missing. 

I used some of my homemade yogurt for a subsitute for cream in the mushroom sauce. That was a hit. It has a really nice buttery flavor. I made it using boxed whole milk and plain greek yogurt for a starter. It has thickened up as it has "aged" in the fridge. I will be making more aboard soon and I will be attempting some oat scones.

Tonight on the menu is sauteed shrimp with peppers tomatoes and arugula and fingerling potatoes. I have an abundance of potatoes, mushrooms and peppers aboard. Not sure why I purchased so many.  I am really thankful we have had cooler temperatures so that these items have survived the pantry!


  1. We LOVE scrabble.. We also have a set we keep on board, however it is the "diamond" edition with built in wheels for turning, recessed letter areas to keep the letters from shifting, and little drawers for storing everything.

    It was $30 and well worth it.

  2. Thanks for adding us to the blog roll. Look forward to a future game of scrabble with you and Tate.
