Sailing to Suriname day 14

We're starting to run low on fresh fruits and veggies; which means it's time to get clever with cabbage. We're not doing too terribly though considering the last truly well-stocked and affordable grocery store was in Port Owen in March. It helps that this is such an easy trip. It's complicated coming up with meals in rough conditions which go beyond 2 tins + 1 bag or box = dinner. Instead we have things like veggie burgers made from butternut squash and feta cheese or sweet and sour coleslaw with cabbage and beets. It really is all about food out here. We're now less than 800 from Suriname. We crossed the equator for the forth and final time a few days ago and changed times on the clock for about the 30th time since leaving home. What we haven't had to do on this passage is raise the mainsail, though we have changed foresail configurations multiple times. Mostly though we spend our days reading and pondering what to make with our diminished stores. Soon enough though there will be a new country and new cuisine.
