Re: The definition of I can cook

I think that I can cook. While I like to take a lot of time to research and create new recipes, I would say that maybe my best skill is cooking up a delicious and nutritious meal using what I've got. In preparation for sailing across oceans, I am learning to grow sprouts and make cheese. I love the idea of having fresh crunchy greens every few days, and I think that out in the middle of the ocean, a week away from land, would be an ideal place to make fresh mozzarella and ricotta cheeses to construct a wonderful lasagne dinner for the crew. I'm not prone to seasickness and have medical skills too. Our first meal that I cooked on our boat was angel hair pasta with bolognese sauce topped with fresh-grated parmigianno reggiano, served with garlic bread and steamed green beans with slivered almonds. This was paired with a bottle of red wine and dessert was tarte tatin.
