The Capaz crew worked hard in the galley today.
It started this morning with Bryce making breakfast for us all. There were directions to be read and improved upon and a new stove to learn how to use. (Bryce figured out Grammy-Sue's stove in Portland last week.) I think Bryce has been secretly studying his G-pa's technique for years. Anyway, he prepared scrumptious blueberry pancakes and grapefruit halves getting Brad out the hatch in plenty of time to make his 10 am showing this morning. Bryce has discovered that the flipping thing might be easier than it looks, but he is willing to try again to get more practice. This could work out well for the parents who actually love to sleep in.
After a quick laundry run to the house I made it back home in time to take enjoy Austin's tuna salad sandwiches at lunch time. It is his favorite meal and he feels that it just doesn't come his way often enough. So today, he took matters into his own hands. He located the ingredients and so carefully (for his mother's sanity) chopped up the celery and onions using the really big sharp knife. Austin served up everyone a semi-custom order (Mom likes a pickle slice on the side, Bryce likes only the barest of minimums of mayo and Dad eats pretty much anything you put in front of him). Austin even made himself and Brad seconds on the sandwiches. I can tell now that the boys are going to be great helpers when we are cruising.
The last meal of the day was cooked by Mom. Nothing new there, but I sure appreciated that I didn't have to really go into the galley (except for a little advice, when asked here and there) until almost 6:00PM!
