You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

My guess was - just entering high school . . . makeup, unfortunately, visually changes a 13 year old.

Bruscetta is what you described . . . at least what we call it - great for snacking, as a light brunch or accompanying a meal. I like to slice up some crusty, rustic bread, drizzle both sides with EVOO (extra virgin olive oil) and grill on a very hot ridged grill pan over the cooktop - turning once. Chopped fresh tomatoes (seeded), fresh basil, and fresh grated parmesan cheese are then added to each slice, drizzled with more EVOO - good eats. If I'm feeling ambitious, I'll place it in the oven for a minute, till the cheese melts.

We also use it on a variety of other foods, grilled panini cheese and tomato sandwiches, soups, stews, baked eggplant parmesan (propane oven), pan grilled sliced sausage, onions & bell peppers with olive oil over angel hair pasta, my fresh littleneck clam & mussels zuppa (harvested from the shoreline at low tide), tomato sauce/pasta dishes . . . I could go on & on, but you get the picture. We love basil.

Not quite Bruscetta, no onion and the tomato just sliced not diced but yeah, that's the general idea. Maybe Ms Wombat will have more luck keeping the basil loving caterpillers at bay on board than she does at home.

The Spaniels have a thing where they take a slice of bread toasted on one side only then you pour some olive oil (evoo of course) onto the bread , rub into that some garlic and then some very ripe tomato. Pan con Tomate they call it. With a side order of Jamon (the black foot acorn eating pig type Pata Negro sp ?? not sure) and a plate of freshly grilled or steamed prawns (shrimps to you lot). Whenever I go to Spain, the first thing I do is find a little cafe and get me some of that.

PS to Alex - Portuguese version of Pan con Tomate ?

(edit) suffice it to say whether on TB or the Womboat the TBs and Wombats would be guaranteed a meal to each others liking.

pps - basil is sorted, now find me a 12v juicer (not citrus. carrots, apples and the like) and she will have no more excuses not to buy a bigger boat and move aboard.

Actually that is not a Spanish recepy but a Maltese one, based on and Italian recepy.

The name is Ħobz biz-Zejt , and it dates back to the famous great siege of Malta in 1565 (See here), when the seiged people had nothing more to eat but oil thin bread and a few tomatoes.

They rubbed the tomato on the bread so one tomato could feed many people.

Tha Spanish really...really..never invented anything, other than killing indians, bad weather, bad marriages with portuguese royalty, and plague, disease, and the Miura bull...that's pretty much it.....

Hey TB...if they charge $60 to cut the bristles on your "***** licker" boat cleaner mop, how much would they charge to cut my KING SIZE FAMILY MODEL REAL PEOPLE mail man eater??? (G)





my dogs don't go on the boat...the idiot above jumps in the water and last time he did that I had to get the dinghy in the water and tow him to a beach, to get him of the ocean.

What, you didn't want 100 gallons of sea water on your boat walking around in the shape of a furry four-legged mop???

Nahh..stupid idiot jumped in the water, he then off course couldn't get up, I rigged a few ropes and tried to lift him up with the boom, but he wouldn't stop moving, and altered the center of gravity several times, resulting in dog head first dives...he then got scared of the boom and would swim away from the boat.

I finnally got the dinghy in the water, and motored about 1 mile to the beach in Estoril, towing him behind the dinghy, where I got him in the dinghy, motored back to Giulietta and he got back on the boat thru the transom cut.

I then tied him to the winch.

He's an idiot, but he likes water.

He weighs 65Kg dry, I assume with the wet hair, he weighed around 160lbs..

At least TB's ***** licker is good to pick up with a bucket....

Dream on, old man. My daughter's just 19 and when we're out together we often get confused as a couple. Why, just last year I got carded at an appleby's restaurant (so the light was bad, as my wife keeps bitterly reminding me).

Lots of advantages in looking young for one's age
