I start work in about two weeks. Normally, I have no anxiety about work, but this time it is a little different. I have a crazy job for which I feel hopelessly unqualified. I am a cook. On a sailboat. My only qualifications, that I can think of, are that I have FoodSafe (haha.. yay foodsafe) and enjoy cooking. Oh, and I know how to make bread. But I have no idea where to start when it comes to planning meals and purchasing supplies for 30-odd people. Yikes! So I’ve been looking at recipes and evaluating their “boat-worthiness” lately (I have been assistant cook on the boats before… all the fun and none of the prep and planning). Dad and Colleen have been more than willing to try my experiments. Behold the latest creation: Chinese-style dumplings! We learned (partially-the filling and folding only) how to make them when I was in China and so I decided to give it a try. No one has died yet, so that is a good sign!
