The attached recipe we have made at anchor many times on propane and alcohol ranges.  Where we did not have an oven, we put a lid on the skillet to melt the Parmesian cheese.  (We do not necessarily use Barcardi Rum, but I got the recipe from them and feel it appropriate to give them credit)

Hope you get to try it.

My "GoTo" recipe is more or less as follows:

1 - Look at stores, make decision on what to use as a 'base' or 'core' or 'main' ingredient.
2 - Look for something to add to that, which should (hopefully) taste good when doing so.
3 - (thru say, 5, or 6...)Repeat Step 2.
"7" - Cook it all.
8 - Eat, and experience gastronomic bliss - or otherwise.
9 - If 'bliss' achieved, add "recipe" to 'mental cookbook' of "Things Which Taste Good When Cooked Together".
10 - If 'otherwise', well, then Crewdog Barque gets "peoplefood" for the night.

For example, night before last, the girl was onboard, and I needed to feed her.
Core ingredient was a pack of teriyaki chicken flavored noodles, yielding 2x 3/4 cup servings when done.
Added canned chicken bits - to be put in after cooking, as they were pre-cooked.
Added package of Oriental Chicken flavored Ramen (circa 2002), as I felt 3/4 cup serving from teriyaki package wouldn't be enough food.
On/during cooking, noticed I had put too much water in pan.
Solution: add 1/2 handful broken-up spaghetti noodles. Solution worked.
Once noodles were all cooked properly (All Dently, that is), pan pulled from stove, chicken bits added to noodle mixture, stirred in to warm appropriately after a few minutes rest.
Served with ground Parmesan/Romano which, after testing, was found to be a good addition to basic recipe.

Gastronomic bliss ensued, recipe considered a Success.

Bonus: due to the eyeball measuring and subsequent overwatering of the noodles in preparation, Barque got to eat some peoplefood in addition to his Just6 kibble.

Little labor intensive but can be cooked in a single pan
10" skillet, heat dry for 2 minutes
Add 1/3 can corn, cook till it begins to pop, move corn into bowl.
2 tsp oil, add 1/2 red onion, 1 clove garlic minced & little bit chili powder, cook till onions soften. Put corn back in, add 1/3 can black beans (mash a bit), little lime juice, salt & pepper, a few minutes later put back in bowl.

Clean pan, reheat, brush one side 8" tortilla with oil toss in pan till it puffs, flip over, put filling from bowl on 1/2 the tortilla, add jalapinos, jack cheese,  fold over, brush with oil, sprinkle with salt. Cook 1-2 minutes, remove from pan, let in cool for couple of minutes while you  make a margarita.  Cut into 3 pies, enjoy.

Adjust recipe, this makes 8-10 before being cut into pie shape.
 In case you haven't figured it out,  I like to eat :)

Sounds like a tasty meal from a minimalist galley. 

We will save some vegetables and meat from an evening meal and prepare it with beaten eggs to make an omelet/fritatta the next morning.  To melt cheese on top, put a lid or plate over the pan.  Almost anything will work, beans, peas, pasta...pretty much anything. 

I am trying to attach a recipe.  If this does not work, I will find another way to get it out.

Not much else to say, except that this is one of the more comprehensive things I've seen on multiple anchor testing in different bottoms with different scope, with actual video of anchors setting, and resetting on reversal. etc.    It's fairly long but well worth watching.

Bladedancer had the onions right, they are a favorite for me too.  Nothing like some onions cooking to whet the appetite.

My cooking is slow, as I use Sterno, so you will find that I don't brown much.

Cube a suitable size potato for the crew on board, put it in a greased/oiled pan or skillet to begin cooking, covered.

Slice or chop an onion half as big as the potato, and add it when the potato begins to soften, and salt and pepper.

Now, decide what the meal is going to be!

Toss in a can of crumbled corned beef.
Spread out and top with an egg for each person, I stir mine in, my son leaves his on top sunny side up, much slower to finish cooking
Drain and dump in any kind of canned tomatoes, from sauce to crushed or stewed.  Save the juice to cook pasta or rice in.
Cube precooked wieners, sausages, pepperoni, whatever you have, and add, serve as soon as they are hot.

There are a lot of other possibilities for that starter meal.

I often make a large portion at breakfast, split it and do the egg version, save the rest for lunch or supper with different additives.

Any kind of fruit, fresh or dried go well to balance out the nutrients, and act as a desert too.

Boat Bits / Useful LED test

    In a blog titled "One More Time Around", the writer explores some LED bulbs, mounting a number of them on a plank and comparing their brightness and current draw.  It's a short read, with two photos.

    Power generation, storage and use is becoming increasingly important, both for lighting & nav uses, and for the many modern technology toys we have or want.   My biggest concern is storage.   Lithium technology is simply not up to a level of simplicity and rugged reliability suitable for use in boats yet in my opinion.   The chargers are too delicate, and are critical to the system, and of course the batteries are too finicky.   The numbers look superb, but the reality doesn't seem to match the numbers, but that's a different topic.  The cheapest and best "battery" is the block of ice, or fresh water made from salt water..... and the "conservation battery", which is to say, systems that use less power.  Of the latter, LED lighting ranks pretty high.
