30 hours sounds about right, 16 of that on the Ferry sailing.
You'll miss Monday's Bouillabaisse (unless you are already on the road)

Shipwreck Pie

Story from a elder neighbor, when the larder is near empty, early Spring, when the new
seed is just being planted, you use up just about anything you have into your big
skillet in layers like a pie.

My up-dated version is using what's in the fridge. Mandoline potato crust. Onions,
any left-over grain. This one I had some lentils and chickpeas from making humus.
Lots of chopped veg, olives, sun-dried toms...baked in the oven, then fresh cod fillet,
back in oven to finish. Cod cooks quick.
Fat blunt end of a skewer should feel resistance, then done when it pushes right through. (checking every couple minutes after the first 10)

Friends are visiting.

Harvested my first sugar baby watermelon off the plant yesterday. It weighs 17 pounds. Oh my gosh I had that thing hanging on a trellis. It's been in the refrigerator getting nice and cold.

I'm making a fruit salad this morning with watermelon the queen of the show, blueberries, seedless green grapes, and walnuts included. I'm cooking sausage, bacon, eggs (scrambled or fried) and some toast. Served with some hot tea and mimosa. Should be a great breakfast this morning.

LOL, yes 17 lbs, and it is so yummy, sweet, juicy. That sucker was heavy and beautiful bright red inside. I don't think they are supposed to be that big. I give my garden mix (Mels mix recipe) and Urban Farms Texas Tomato Food all the credit.

Bower, I have many photos of IrelandsIsle and AnthonyIsle. Been out a few times.
Do feel free to share any pics I post for any family...

This is Anthony where they had their harvest crops. I'm with Clayton Copper, son of
Jim. Elie and Edith Toop, (the kitchen party celebrating her '90th'...) We knew Eli well
but he passed a few yrs ago...
AnthonyIsl just full carpet of BakeApples mid August

Sweet spot, Oakley! Bakeapples . Looks like a good place for mussels too.
Our family friends are Toopes as well. Been many years since they were in Newfoundland, but their kids (in their 50's now) still visit from time to time.
Ninety is a fine birthday! All that good living making it last...
The moose meatballs look yummy. We don't get moose that often, so pretty much go for the traditional taste instead of experimenting.
