No Cooking

There won't be much cooking around here for a while. Today, with only a few hours notice, the countertop guys came and ripped out much of the kitchen. Now there's no water, sink or stove. They have been amazing at trying to work with my upcoming travel and treatment schedule so that I won't have to be without a kitchen any longer than necessary. This way it will only be a few days. It sure will be nice to have a fresh face on a tired kitchen.

As far as the upcoming trip, I have no idea what we'll be eating. Eight days of the trip will be spent on a 105 foot sailboat in the Galapagos Islands. Larry thinks it will be camping food. The brochure says they will serve us gourmet Ecuadorian cuisine. Who knows what that is! We recently watched the Anthony Bourdain No Reservations trip to Ecuador and much of what he ate, I would prefer to avoid. Guinea pig is a common main course for special occasions in both Ecuador and Peru. Roasted whole, brown and crispy (fur removed), with those little eyes and ears intact. Tony insisted it was quite tasty. I wonder if there will be a cage of little guinea pigs somewhere below deck. I'll be sure to let you know.
