Living on the ghetto dock, we have no shore power, so food options that don't require refrigeration and nuking are our standard. The icebox is for the necessities, beer and mix for the rum, not space to be wasted on perishable food.
We buy fresh vegetables as we need them, and consume within 48 hours.
We always have a selection of snacks aboard- chips, peanuts, cashews.
Cans of Stagg Chili.
Cans of solid tuna
A bottle of EVOO,
A bottle of balsamic vinegar,
A dozen or so SMALL bottles of spices all stored in an airtight box with a couple of packages of silica gel.- five spice powder, oregano, celery salt, thyme, curry powder, various rubs, basil, salt, pepper, lemon pepper, chili powder.
A hanging bag of garlic cloves.
A dry salami
Bags of Goldfish
A jar of popcorn for popping the old fashioned way.
A big honking jar of garlic dill pickles.
Got guests on short notice?
A can of tuna, laid out on a plate with a little olive oil, soy sauce and five spice powder on top and a few chunks of aged salami alongside served with crackers is quick, cheap, easy and looks fancy.
