Pantry Recipe of the Week
Each week we present a recipe that calls for no fresh ingredients at all. Emergencies happen. We recommend an ample pantry even for day sails.
Ham and Cheese Chowder
Condensed soups are a gift to the emergency pantry. They save space yet don’t require long cook times.
4 cups water
1 can condensed cream of potato soup
Small can chunk ham (6 to 10 ounces)
2 cans diced potatoes, drained (and rinsed if possible) OR
2 ½ cups rehydrated dried potatoes
1/3 cup dried, diced onion
8-ounce package process American cheese (e.g. Velveeta), cut in small dice
12-ounce can evaporated milk
In a saucepan combine the water, soup, ham, potatoes and onion. Cook gently until onions and potatoes are tender. Stir in canned milk and diced cheese until cheese melts. Do not boil. Serves 4 as a hearty main dish.

Galley Recipe of the Week
Cut this sweetie in wedges and serve for dessert or a snack. It's rich, so keep portions modest.
2 cups biscuit mix
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla or rum flavoring
1 cup coarsely chopped nuts
1/4 cup vegetable oil
Lightly grease a 12-inch skillet. In a bowl, whip the eggs with a fork until they are well mixed, then stir in biscuit mix, sugar, flavoring, a cup of nuts and the oil. Spread this mixture evenly in the cold skillet to form a crust. Set aside.
8-ounce package cream cheese, softened at “room” temperature
16-ounce box or bag of powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla, butter, lemon or rum flavoring
If you have a an electric mixer use it now. If not, mash the egg and cream cheese until well mixed and work in powdered sugar. Add flavoring and spread over the crust. Cover pan tightly and place over a medium/low burner. Use a flame tamer or heat spreader if necessary to keep heat even and to prevent burning on the bottom.
It’s done when crust is golden around the edges, pulling lightly away from the pan, and top is smooth and set. Let cool completely in the pan before cutting.
Oven method: Assemble as above in a greased 9 X 13-inch baking pan and bake 35 to 40 minutes at 350 degrees.
