Adventures in Cooking. (tag Sadie)

Yes, the Captain is cooking. Try not to faint. Cooking as in the galley is smelling rather like burnt cabbage and cursing can be heard mumbled as the slamming of the pot lids gets louder. (Sorry Sadie)

We are sure he'll calm down if she enters the galley.

The pot starts to boil over....

Ok, make that a Maybe.....


"How...." She puts a finger to her forehead and thanks. "How does the worm be meat? How do I make the worm be meat?"

Lots of words!
"OH!" he says stepping closer and moving to help her lay the worm on the cutting board. "Well, first ya got t'cut it." he states opening a drawer and pulling out a knife. He places the knife in Sadie's hand and with his hand over hers he cuts the head off the worm.

"That's meat." he says pointing with the knife tip inside the worm.
She studies it thoughtfully, her antennae quivering as she reads its very molecular composition, then nods. "Okay. We... broke the worm."
A smile. "In a manner of speakin'." he states moving to grab a pan and place it on the stove before he turns on the heat.
"Noo." She took the pan back off and shook her head at him. "Fix the worm and the...." Much thought as she put new words to pictures. "Bok choy, carrot, and shallot, first."
"Huh." he grunts watching her work. "Seems like some things are comin' back." he continues thoughtfully.
Sadie paused and looked around. "Vegetables? Um... where? And...." She picked up the dead worm and brushed the cut end with her antennae, then shuddered and set it down. "Okay, little... little... um...."

It still needed to be cleaned, and she couldn't remember the words to say it needed to be in little pieces or that she didn't know where the veggies were, but she was trying.
