Since Dave made pizza yesterday, he has the “bread bug” to make something else. Today, he tried soda bread with raisins. He improvised with the ingredients to take advantage our “Tin Can Galley”. He used our Nido powdered milk and Media Crema for the sour cream. You can add vinegar to the Media Crema to make sour cream. We had gotten tired of the taste and started buying sour cream. But after trying it again today, it wasn’t so bad. So we’ll have to use up our last 3 cans instead of buying sour cream. He also used the last of our raisins, but that was ok, because the end result was fantastic. He thought it would stay in a loaf shape in a cake pan, but it spread out and filled the pan like a cake. So we immediately froze half of it.
By today, our towels in the “24 hour rinse cycle” were smelling a little rough. So we put them in fresh water with some ammonia. Scented laundry soaps and softeners bother Dave’s sinuses. This really worked to remove any smell and didn’t leave any ammonia odor. Actually, we had read that it will help your clothes dry faster because it evaporates faster than water. In this case, I don’t think it made a difference because it was diluted.
Maintenance days: I cleaned heads and floors. Dave filled fuel tanks from the jerry cans and cleaned the outside of the boat. I decided to take a photo of the cabinetry in our head. It’s amazing how you can get used to such a small space. We keep products that are used less often in our v-berth. And we have refills stored even deeper. So it works. I empty the shelves to wipe them and every bottle, etc on the shelves. Otherwise you see mildew over time.
