That Time I Went to Nassau, Bahamas...

The last stop on my cruise last month was to Nassau, Bahamas. It was drizzle-y the whole day so it's hard to review, per se, but here's how we spent the day.


First I took a bunch of photos from the ship. They would have been prettier if it wasn't raining... I'm pretty sure.

My list of things I wanted to do happened to include 3 indoor things which worked out great given the weather: Pirate Republic Brewery, Senior Frogs (for lunch), Pirate Museum, and beach...

That Time I Made Mushroom Soup...


I made this recipe using some recipe I found online but when it was done I was not impressed. That's what I get for picking something cause it's simple. First it was not so much soup as much as it was glop. Also it just sorta tasted like mashed up raw mushrooms if they could be raw and hot at the same time. So I added some stuff till it was way better. If you hate it though, I take no responsibility for it.


Cream of Mushroom  Soup

Ingredients:
5 c. sliced fresh mushrooms
2 c. + 1 c. chicken stock
1/2 c chopped onion
pinch dried thyme
3 TBS. butter
3 TBS. flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
1 c. half and half*
1/4 c. Marsala wine**

That Time I Made Chicken Marsala...

I decided to bring back an old feature, and only some weeks. I stopped using my recipe blog, so why not post some food stuffs here sometimes?

This recipe is easier than you think, it's super-duper yummy, and it's one of my favorites. Yes, I just said 'super-duper.' Anyway, like in all my recipes calling for some kind of wine, I use grocery store cooking wine so feel free to do the same if you don't feel like hitting up a liquor store.

Chicken Marsala

Ingredients:

3 boneless chicken breasts
1/4 c flour
1/2 tsp salt
pinch ground pepper
1/2 tsp oregano
4 Tbsp olive oil
4 Tbsp butter
8oz fresh, sliced mushrooms
1/2-3/4 c Marsala wine

That Time I Went to Great Stirrup Cay...

One of the stops on my recent cruise was at Great Stirrup Cay (pronounced "key"... look it up).

GSC is owned by Norwegian cruise line so the only way to visit it is to cruise there (specifically on NCL)...

That Time I Rode a Bike...

Recently my campus got a ride share program called Zagster.

I was interested in it as it is sometimes difficult to get from point A to point B in a timely manner. I signed up for an account right away and finally gave it a try today....

That Time I Cruised The NCL Breakaway...

After much anticipation I have completed my first NCL cruise! So. Much. Fun. And that is saying a lot because going in and out of NYC in late October, it was too cold to spend time outside on days 1, 2, and 7.

I realized about 3/4 of the way into this post that I didn't even mention the ports of call. Since this post is already long enough, I decided to write separate posts about them. We satayed on the boat in Cape Canaveral, and visited Great Stirrup Cay (NCL's private island in the Bahamas), and Nassau,  Bahamas...
