Coffee, margaritas, beer, peanut butter and goldfish crackers and I could probably survive on Gilligans Island for a long time. Ginger would be good too. I keep hearing she is good for seasickness.

Re: Basic Staples ???

Canned tuna, canned tomatoes, canned chili or black beans. For fruit we use those little snack cups made for kid's lunches - applesauce, mandarin oranges, pineapple. (I'm assuming you don't have refrigeration?) Gotta disagree with Brian on the canned mushrooms, to me those taste slimy, and it doesn't take that long to slice the fresh ones or bring them with your cold provisions (meat, cheese, eggs, veggies) that will augment your pantry staples.

Re: Basic Staples ???

Chef boyardee, black beans, cholula and siracha hot sauces both put tobasco to shame. Also bars of some kind I like the nutri grain cereal bars for a quick pick me up or something to tide you over when the anchorage is still a little way off.

Re: Basic Staples ???

Chef boyardee? Do you keep prisoners aboard?

Re: Basic Staples ???

If you have refrigeration, apples will last a very long time and are a great way to have that fresh fruit break. Orchards effectively keep them all winter. For me, canned and dried fruits get tiresome very quickly.

We do use dried fruit to have homemade trailmix aboard. Good staple. We buy the nuts and dried fruits at Sams/Costco/etc. Occassionaly will add M&Ms, but dried pineapple adds about all the sweet one can handle, if you want sweet. Whatever nuts we are using, we only buy one of them salted, the rest are unsalted. That makes just the right sodium content.

I second the Ginger idea, followed by beer...no, put the beer first.

Re: Basic Staples ???

Great suggestions, in addition to the original basic's were adding more spices, jerky, and some soups that can be used as sauces for rice, beans assorted, stews canned, mushrooms, hot sauce, canned meats, corn flour, salad oil.
I bought a 12 VDC cooler to allow for fresh items for longer.

Re: Basic Staples ???

KnottGurl, I'm in the same situation as you. Same cruising grounds and length of time aboard. Ideally, I'd like to set the boat up to be ready to go with just a quick trip to the grocery near the marina, or even grabbing a cooler of produce from the 'fridge at home. SO and I are NOT gourmets. We can get by on pretty simple food. Here is what I plan to keep on board:

Breakfast - flavored oatmeal, dried fruit, coffee, mini moo creamers
Lunch - tuna pouches, crackers, pb&j, mayo in small pouches
Dinner - canned soup, boil in a bag rice, canned chili, noodles, canned beans, pasta sauce
Beverages - plenty of water, gatorade and crystal light powder, 20oz sodas, beer, RUM
Snacks - fruit and applesauce cups, granola bars, more crackers

This is supplemented by some fresh fruit and veg (carrots, tomatoes, onion, apples), bread, maybe some muffins or a coffee cake, and Kraft singles. We also go out to dinner a lot when cruising and I ALWAYS order a salad with my meal for more vegetables.

Here's to a great summer.
