Weekend Day Sails

Weekend Day Sails

We don’t often do two day sails in one day and when we do I don’t often have to cook for both of them, but this past Saturday I did. Plus, on Sunday we had a Mother’s Day brunch. I spent all day on Friday prepping for these three sails and I still felt slightly behind on all of them. The first was a memorial sail, the client requested heavy appetizers, we worked together to come up with the menu. The second was a private charter and they chose a dinner off of my catering menu, everyone always chooses salmon and my salmon with dill is always the most popular option. For the brunch sail I got to make whatever I wanted, I’ve done fancy dishes with poached eggs in the past, but I opted for something a little easier since I was going to be very busy the day before.
