Admiral’s Barge San Diego Holiday Parade of Lights Party

Summertime on the bay is dreamy, but truth be told, it’s the winter months that capture the heart of this sailor’s wife.  Some of my most dearly cherished memories were made on our now retired 1933 Angelman wooden ketch- most especially during the Parade of Lights parties we hosted for family and friends on our perfectly situated mooring ball in the Laurel Street anchorage.  Providence has long since taken her well-deserved rest, but that won’t stop us from recreating the magic of those Christmas boat-parade parties on our ‘new’ 1967 decommissioned Four Star US Navy Admiral’s Barge!  We are delighted to have this opportunity to help you and yours create sweet Christmas memories like ours, that are sure to last a lifetime.

Biscuits.jpg

$75

Most folks know bread can be made via the ancient art of sourdough fermentation, but many are not aware that almost all flour-centered baking can be done utilizing the same technique. By engaging the services of a ‘SCOBY’ or symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast in the form of a ‘starter’ pasta, crackers, pizza & pie dough and more can be achieved the very same way! If gluten sensitivity or intolerance are an issue in your home, join us for this fascinating look at what sourdough can do to reverse this ever-growing epidemic, and allow you and yours to indulge in ‘the staff of life’ once again.
