That's Dustin on the right, and his friend Dan on the left in Dustin's buccaneer-class boat "Seeing Red." The Carolina Sailing Club held the annual Governor's Cup regatta last weekend, and Smitty and I shot photos from our little ski boat.
OK, I admit it--there's not much of a connection between baking and sailing, but I was determined to feature my incredible son Dustin on today's blog post, so I found a way. (I am a Girl Scout, after all!)
Once upon a time I took beginner sailing lessons impress a certain cute guy who was an avid sailor. It worked! Thirty years later, Smitty and I have two great kids, and he passed the "sailing bug" on to Dustin when he was a little boy.
Dustin's regattas usually take place two miles offshore in Rhode Island, or somewhere equally inaccessible, so we were thrilled that the Carolina Sailing Club's Governor's Cup regatta was taking place just around the corner at Kerr Lake in Henderson, NC.
So, while the sailors were double-checking their gear, studying the racing rules and making last minute adjustments to their boats, I was making my own preparations for the regatta. I was BAKING!
The picnic menu included sandwiches and also hummus (homemade, of course)...and that meant it was time to make a batch of pitas. Fortunately, I had dough ready in the fridge.
