    Getting all artsy-fartsy with a chicken salad.

    Nothing to it. Some salad greens, red onion, a pink grapefruit, grilled chicken and an orange juice and vegetable oil dressing with a splash of red wine vinegar for zing. Chilli to taste and garnish.

    Seemingly simple, this plate was a real **** to turn out. Reminder to self... Never try and cook with filo in a lumpy sea state on a BBQ.

    I'll perfect the recipe and post details then.

    Not one for deserts, it's been VERY cold in Melbourne lately, so poaching pears in white wine, spices and sugar syrup is the perfectly plausible by-product of heating the cabin.

    Decided to cook the pork whole-ish instead:

    I took two pork tenderloins and sliced them like you would rotary peel a log for veneers... about 3/8" thick. I then re-wrapped it back with a couple of bacon slices inside...like a jelly roll and placed one on top (to finish off the pack). Then I put them in my electric roaster with baby white potatoes and yellow carrots and big chunks of yellow onion. I sprinkled the whole shebang with some rubbed sage and some powdered sage, along with sea salt, black pepper and some onion powder and poured some sherry over the meat and some white wine over the veggies surrounding it. I cooked this at 375 for about 1.5 hours but it should have been more. A few of the larger potatoes right alongside the meat didn't get done enough although the meat did??? I did up a couple of packages of pork gravy subbing most of the water with the juices from the pan and some more white wine...

    Pretty darn good if I do say so my self.

    Try boiling the potatoes for a short time before putting them in with the pork. They will be more done.

    Wow, things are looking up... Just got a cheque in the mail this afternoon.

    You'll be finding my recipes in the American Cruising Outpost magazine as well as the Australian Cruising Helmsman magazine.

    Now I just have to add an English or a continental European magazine to sign up and I'll be the freakin celebrity chef of the seas.
