Bahama Cruise {Two}

Untitled
Ah, day two... the day of feeling the pain of over-doing it. On the first night of the trip, I had, for the first time in years, a red bull and vodka... a really freaking big red-bull and vodka. I woke up bright and early still feeling (not so) nice and jittery and ready to go. Yeah, eight am wake up party, after a two am (plus) dancing party. I left the room, took a picture of the sun to try to convince Laura that the sun was shining, dragged her out of bed, and to the pool deck we went... well after a potato, toast, and stir-fry breakfast (why, oh why was there stir fry and miso soup available of breakfast?? I ask, but I ate it... so thats why). Once we felt brave enough to board the tiny boat, we headed over to the tiny beach island for hours of hammock laying. My red bull hangover came and left and we headed back to the main boat. We showered, put on skirts (our "formal" wear), realized Laura had turned into a lobster, and headed to dinner where we toasted to the birthday man, Laura's dad.

Also? Contrary to what I expected, there were no mass amounts of french fries eaten on the trip... not even one french fry was eaten by the two of us. I don't think I mentioned it, but Laura is vegan too... and we did manage to have more than enough food for the two of us. We got by just fine and with more than enough options placed in front of us. Was it all delicious? No, it's cruise food, but it satisfied our needs, it was all relatively healthy, and it was vegan. But you better believe, I am thrilled to be back home and cooking in my kitchen! I want to make nothing and everything all at the same time. I had no idea what to make for dinner tonight and I think I over did it a bit with: bbq tofu (bbq sauce made from scratch), creamed spinach with chickpeas (first time ever making it. so good), roasted paprika potatoes, and pea/potato/chickpea patties. I'm going to start thinking about tomorrows dinner: NOW. (suggestions welcomed)

  2. Cruise food! So mediocre.

    All I have been wanting to eat is this vegan soup from a thai restaurant by me. All it has in it is a clear vegetable broth and vegetables (broccoli, bamboo shoots, bok choy, baby corn and carrots) but it's so, so good.

  4. I'm such a stinky food snob- I would always prefer to eat at home. And just FYI- you should totally, definitely, absolutely make almond coconut tofu and some steam fried veggies. Dredge your tofu in flour, dip it in coconut milk, roll it in a mix of almond meal/unsweetened coconut/breadcrumbs. Cook them in the skillet! I want them every day. I also have big plans for a zucchini version because seriously.. WHY. NOT. Mmm. I'm hungry now.

  7. I had wondered how you fared in the food department on the ship. I'm glad you had plenty of choices, even if they weren't yummy.

    And I'm with Jennilee, where did that swim suit come from?? It ROCKS!

  8. It looks like you guys had a great time! Garlic Bread soup is always great to make for dinner! I know I can't stop making it for dinner!

  9. I love this! I'm surprised you were able to stay vegan. I feel like a cruise wouldn't have like, any vegan options, so that's awesome! Also, the dinner you made sounds delicious. I'm vegan too, and all of my meals lately have had SOMETHING with chickpeas in it. haha

    Also, I adore your sunglasses!
