Since Hetta is always boating in places without stores now, I thought I'd share her:
Emergen-Sea Ice Cream Recipe
1 Gallon sized Ziploc
1 Qt. sized Ziploc
Cream or canned milk to fill Qt zip to 3/4 full
OR if feeling ambitious, make french custard mix
ADD: Vanilla to taste
Sugar to taste
Flavoring: Chocolate syrup is great!
Seal qt. bag and place inside gallon bag.
JUST ADD SALT and Ice
Seal gallon bag.
Shake, shake, shake your booty until frozen.
This also acts as an on-board aerobic activity.
Can also serve a slushy Margarita maker with lime juice, salt, sugar, and tequila. Not recommended when underway.
Just Add Salt - Review by Martha A. Cheves, Author of: Stir, Laugh, Repeat; Think With Your Taste Buds; A Book and A Dish
Nothing like a new project or romantic rejection to get my lazy self motivated. So, fired by an emotionally charged combination of excitement and choler, I compiled an extortionate list of demands for my new client... The Trob had given me the basic of the project, so I still was a little scarce on details... Tanuki wanted me to do some major snoopery before they spent too much time and money on this project. Or so they said. My experience was that Japan Incorporated rarely takes the environment too seriouskly, especially the ecosystems of others.
Hetta Coffey along with her friend Jan and their boyfriends Jenks and Lars, had been planning a trip to Mexico on Hetta's boat for some time, so when she finds out that Jenks and Lars are both on a job in Kuwait that will keep them there for some time she decides to take the job offered by Tanuki and go to Mexico without them. She and Jan combined can manage her boat, which is also her full-time home, but Jan insists they hire a captain and so starts the search for a captain that isn't afraid to tread into those waters during hurricane season.
This book is full of adventure as well as humor. I couldn't help but laugh out loud when Lonesome the male whale started 'courting' the boat. Author Jinx Schwartz has given the characters of Hetta and Jan a real sense of humor as well as adventure that keeps you reading to see what they will get into next and how they will get out of it. Can't wait to read Book 3 in this series.
