Check out the loot!

We sailed overnight. Best meal for that? Penne pasta and red sauce in a bowl. See photo. I got sea sick in the beginning of our crossing so that was a bummer. I had grand plan for dinner but will have to wait for another night.
So, the reason for our rush to Ft. Pierce is the Saturday farmers market that runs. 8 am to noon. For 37$ I walked away with local and not local food, herbs, spices and grass fed local beef. WOW!
I got long red beans, asparagus, mushrooms, peppers, pink lady apples, honeybells, brussle sprouts, mint plant, garam masala, an eggplant and a pound of grass fed beef for jeff. In Marathon, I went to the publix and granted I did get some frozen foods and cheese but it was $97! I feel like I will be able to really enjoy what ever meals I happen to come up with now!
Oh not pictured is the freshly squeezed oj and loaf of asiago bread and dinner rolls. Yum!
So, good reader, I am thinking of getting a vacuum sealer for the boat. 3 people in my life really love theirs any other folks have opinions?


  1. Farmer's markets are so much fun! Plus you help the local guy out.

    I've never used a vacuum sealer, I use the ole straw in a bag trick for items I put in the freezer, but I imagine it will come in handy when you need items to stay really fresh on a boat.

    Seasickness is no fun, but sailing overnight is quite an accomplishment. We have yet to tackle that one.

  2. Dani, I do have a vacuvin for wine and that works on ziplocks with an special opening just for that but I am leaning towards the electrical one. We shall see.
