Our 2010 Season Starts this Weekend – Bring on the Butter!

Well winter is over and spring is in full swing. Our outfitting is finished and the David B looks fantastic! Our first trip of the season is this weekend for Mothers Day. It has been a fairly warm winter and I’m expecting to see lots of wildflowers in the islands this weekend. I’m also getting excited about another summer of spoiling our passengers with butter and cream, my two favorite ingredients.

Since our first cruise Weekend Getaway in the San Juan Islands falls over Mothers Day, we’ve invited my Mom to be on board and she’s requested Whiskey Crab Soup. This tomato based bisque is rich and delicious with just a touch of lemon. It’s one of my favorite soups and I’m looking forward to making it special for her. I’m also planning on making croissants and pan au chocolat  on this trip. I normally reserve these labor intensive butter-filled treats for our longer cruises, but I can’t resist starting out the season on a buttery note.

We have two spots left on this trip. If you’d like to meet my Mom and come for a relaxing weekend of wildflowers, easy walks, a little kayaking and a lot of good cooking give me a call at 877-670-7863. For more information…
