Galley blitz

Wednesday 10 May

A day that began full of good intentions that evaporated with the breeze, overtaken by a galley session including griddled halloumi and Mediterranean vegetables, steak casserole and two loaves of bread. Supper ran to clearing a few more items from the store cupboard, to conjure up vegetarian sausages with gluten free gnocchi and ratatouille – probably more tasty than it sounds. Beautiful sunshine was followed by a full moon, but the barometer was noted to be dropping slightly, perhaps a portent of coming change in the weather.
