Scrumptious Meals by Alisa
During my stay, Alisa always had the most wonderful meals planned for Mike, the kids and myself. I felt truly spoiled. She would start the kids, Mike and myself off with a cheese and cracker tray and crack open a bottle of wonderful Australian wine, or make a simple mixed drink for the grown ups. Then she would cook as I sat at the galley table and played with the kids. It was such a treat to watch her, smell the aromas floating through.
Sidenote: (Alisa and my girlfriend, Balika, are two female chefs I highly admire-because they are used to cooking on a boat. This means they can scrounge together whatever is in the fridge to put together an incredible meal. AND cook in a small space with limited utensils. Balika grew up fishing with her mom and I got to appreciate her cooking when we did a boat trip in France with her family in 2010)
