Ahoy, Mates!

How is your boating season going so far? Ours has been wonderful. The weather at the Buffalo end of Lake Erie has been almost perfect! Great lake conditions, plenty of warm temps and sun, and lots of good eats! So many of those!  My husband’s shorts are getting tight! …Ok, it’s really mine getting tight… but what’s a girl to do? All the dishes are sooo good!

For example, last weekend our dock mates Capt Rich & Admiral Bonnie invited all of our C-Dock crew out for a cruise. What a spectacular day! Our trip took us up the Niagara River through the lock, all along the Buffalo Harbor, out onto Lake Erie and then back down under the Peace Bridge. From wildlife to battle ships and submarines, we saw it all – with our very excellent Capt. Rich filling in the sights with stories and history of the area. Absolutely wonderful!  Along the way delicious food and drink flowed endlessly for us. And yes, I sacrificed my body for YOU!  Tasting all the goodies, your ever-dedicated servant, doing whatever it takes to bring the yum to you! Hope you enjoy Oars Do Row ~ Admiral Bonnie’s personal galley favorites!

Safe Boating & Delicious Dishes to You!

Polly’s Shrimp Dip

My parents loved entertaining and this was one of my mom's favorite dips to make.  It’s really easy to make ahead of time and take to the boat to serve to friends. Also, if you have a food processer on the boat, or a mixer, you can make it right at the boat!

  • 2 cans Shrimp, drained
  • 1 8oz Cream Cheese
  • 2 Tbsp Horseradish
  • 1 Tbsp Mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbsp Onion, dried chopped or minced

Mix all ingredients together.  Refrigerate overnight.  Serve with crackers.  Enjoy!
