Pure genius! Well done!

Hi Barb - For a good space saver, keep good quality tomato paste on hand (Contadina) . You can reconstitute it with water, add a few dry seasonings and viola - decent pizza or pasta sauce.


excellent post ! thanks for shareing the good info.


LOL, I just noticed the can of Spam in the pict. Excellent long term survival food. Spam rules !

Barbara Hart

Thanks for the idea, Howie. I have never thought of that. Blonde. Really Blonde.

Barbara Hart

Thank you for the comments, Ray. Glad you caught the Spam. EW threatens to serve it and I threaten him with Vienna Sausages. I still can't believe that I'm eating Valveeta - plastic cheese.

Mark Brown

That's ingenious and space saving. I have a question though, does this kind of storage lengthen the shelf life of food? And yes, I do think that's spam.

  • Troubadour
    These friends just completed a major haul out in Grenada -- unplanned. Read their past posts to find out why and their current to follow in their wake and hear a bit of Jimmy Buffet.
  • The Everywhereist | travel advice, tips, and stories
    One of the few non-sailors I follow, Geraldine became a travel writer when she was laid off and decided to join her husband on his business trips. He has a lot of trips to far-flung places, so she now travels with him and writes about it. She's funny. She's certainly well-traveled. I'm not sure whether she is following her dream or making lemonade out of lemons -- either way, she does it beautifully.
  • Silverheels III
    Ken and Lynn from Canada - others who lived aboard through a few winters who are now in the Caribbean. We can relate.
  • Shilo
    Two people, one a writer and one a photographer on a catamaran. Not to be missed.
  • One White Tree
    Ross and Diana -- forever friends we met in Grenada -- are sailing west as we are sailing east. We've shared excellent times and fun stories and look forward to following them as they sail the Pacific.
  • Coconut Connection | Pacific Hwy
    We met Bruce and Laura in Grenada in 2011 when they were living aboard and working on the catamaran Puma. Now they are on their own monohull, crossing the Pacific. They are former charter captain and crew and Laura is an outstanding chef.
  • Ceilydh Sets Sail
    A family of three - and a cat sailing the Pacific. Homeschooling, writing, boat repair, catamarans, local information and more.
