Crazy times! As I look out my window in Steamboat into a driving snowstorm, I’m feeling so grateful to be warm, safe and secure. I realize that many of you are dealing with your own storms during this time of the coronavirus pandemic. Hopefully you are all well and managing these new challenges of our world’s predicament.
It has been interesting to watch our friends, family and neighbors adjust to the constraints of being confined to a small space with limited shopping and social interaction…that’s life on a boat! My blog posts on Getting Started with Sourdough Starter and Sourdough Pancakes have been getting a lot of traffic of late. I guess because, like living on a sailboat, you can’t always get good bread or yeast if you are in a remote location.
I have spent the last month giving LifeinTheBoat.com a bit of a facelift. This update included making the recipes more searchable and the whole website easier to read on mobile devices. Check out my latest recipe post for a fabulous, yet easy, Mediterranean dish called Shakshuka. Take a few minutes to check out the updated site and leave a comment below the recipe when you give Shakshuka a try.
Here’s an update of the Snowcat crew
Dean has been teaching college biology at Colorado Mountain College while we are in Steamboat. Lately, he’s been challenged to offer the remainder of this semester’s course online. Jackson is at home and applying for jobs. Perhaps FEMA will be hiring soon! Ben has completed his second year of medical school and has been studying for the “step-one” medical board exam. He was supposed to take the test this week, but testing centers are all closed, so we all hope that he’ll be able to take it in May. I am sewing surgical-style masks for friends and family and conducting meetings for my Brownie troop via Zoom.
The Massey’s are wishing you the very best. Stay well!0
