How to Provision Home Cooked Dinners for 6 days Offshore in 1 hour

Sunday we head off on an adventure but this time we are leaving Scruffy and Persistence behind. Brandon and I are racing in the Marblehead to Halifax Race but on separate boats.  He will be on Verissimo, a 62-foot custom yacht, which is the same boat he raced with for Bermuda. (Poor guy…)

I will be sailing with my dad and friend Morgan on his Catalina 36, Pau Hana. Needless to say, Brandon will get to Canada before me. Morgan and I are in charge of provisioning so we divided that she get all the snacks and stuff to make Breakfast and Lunches. I took on all the dinners to get us to Halifax and then onto Maine after the race.

I am a little stressed with all the “real work” I need to get done before I go so I took the speedy approach to getting this done. One pan meals that each combine a starch, veggies, and a meat.

  1. Lasagna made with Raviolis and Chicken Sausage
  2. Chili with Sausage, Onions, Peppers, Tomato Paste, and Beans
  3. Beef Stir Fry with Veggies in a Teriyaki Sauce
  4. Chicken Korma inspired dish with rice and veggies
  5. Buffalo Mac and Cheese
  6. Beef Stew with Potatoes, Carrots, and Celery

By using a grill to cook all the meat at once and then utilizing the 4 burners to cook the rest of the ingredients. I was able to prepare 6 dinners in just under an hour.


Then it took me an hour to clean up…
