Re: Meat & Potato Man

I'm smack in the middle of xymotic and denise. Sometimes how we live on land isn't easily (or not at all) transferable to being on a boat for days or weeks at a time. Everyone has to compromise, including your boyfriend.

That said, how about limiting your meat to what you can cook and eat the first week? After that, if you can't restock in a port, you get creative and/or just deal with going without. Alternatively (or in addition to), make meals ahead of time (stews, lasagna, spaghetti sauce) and freeze them. That will save you having to do a lot of prep work, too.

Trust me, not eating meat for a few days or a week won't kill him. If he is an every day meat eater, he may even be healthier at the end of this trip. Also, we've found that we don't eat anywhere near like we eat at home: more grazing of nuts and fruits while underway and fewer heavy meals and we don't miss it at all.
