Navigating the Sea of Life
I will say it again–there is no shortage of group activities as a member of the Royal Marsh Harbour Yacht Club. On Super Bowl Sunday those engineer types members set up the big screen and hooked up to a cable tv/internet source to carry the game between the New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles for the whole club to watch together. We didn’t have a favorite team so we were there mostly for the camaraderie and the food. However, the game was very entertaining.
The picnic tables were heavy laden with appetizers at 5:00. This has been the best selection of food since we have arrived. I suggested we start a cook book just for appetizers. No one objected and handed that responsibility over to me–volunteers are always needed!
All boaters were asked to bring a heavy hors d’oeuvres to share before our hot dog dinner. I decided to try my hand at a pizza monkey bread. Something like that cinnamon sugar monkey bread that is baked in a bundt pan but with pizza ingredients. I don’t have a bundt pan on board so I had to compromise. The same recipe can be prepared in a casserole pan. It tastes just as good, but presentation is a little different. There were no leftovers.
After all those appetizers were devoured, a dinner of hot dogs and all the fixings were brought out at halftime. We were also tempted by a nice selection of boat baked goods for dessert.
There were a few interruptions in the streaming of the game–it always seemed to be at a crucial point in plan. No one was too upset…but some of the die-hard fans left at half time to watch the game on their boats. It’s the Bahamas–things don’t always work as we have come to expect in the U.S.
