Christmas Tree on a Boat

When you live on a boat like we do, there is not enough
room for a Christmas tree...and you certainly don't want it tipping
over when the boat rocks! So instead of a tree we decorate the part of
our mast that comes into the boat. Doesn't take up any space at all!
My siblings and I have a tradition of exchanging Christmas ornaments every year...we get a lot of mermaid and diver ornaments!
did pretty well on the budget this week- $105 for food and drink,
breakfast and dinner- we were able to put $26 into vacation fund. I was
so inspired by my homemade pita breads last week (see last post) that I
tried hamburger buns this week. I used the Hamburger or Hot Dog Buns
recipe from AR. It makes a ton of buns!
it makes 12, but I have never had luck with scaling bread recipes, so I
made all twelve and gave some to the neighbors. They turned out really
well, though a bit biscuit-tasting. I did the same thing I did to the
pitas, after they came out of the oven I put them between damp paper
towels, then between 2 paper plates, and the whole stack sealed in a
plastic bag. This is to keep them soft- I ate the last one this
morning, and it was still soft after 4 days!
So the menu for the week was: Sunday- Veggie Burgers with potato salad;
Monday- Felafel on pitas with cucumber salad; Tuesday- Pasta with
peas, goat cheese, and chicken; Wednesday- Fried egg and vegetable
sandwiches ; Thursday we had dinner at a friend's house- grilled Mahi that Husband caught- and I brought
crackers and a garlic potato dip for an appetizer; Friday- Veggie
burgers with french fries; Saturday- Pizza.
Hope everyone has a great week!
