The floor drain is, at long last, draining. Water ingress has slowed considerably. My tiny shop-vac picked up a lot of it and will see more use later this morning.
With USS Roseholme's leaking bilges almost under control, I was able to get some cooking done: a breakfast hash with seasoned ground pork (curry powder, tarragon, cilantro, marjoram, thyme, garlic powder and dried chives -- I'm out of sage! Black pepper would have been good to add, too), one (1) chorizo sausage, diced potato, fresh mushrooms, red onion, a small zucchini and a large poblano pepper and three eggs, served topped with a little chopped Gruyère cheese, diced raw carrot and garden pesto; salt, pepper and/or Cholula to taste. Yum!
The almost-baby zucchini worked very well. Next time, I'll either skip the mushrooms (too bland) or replace them with an exotic, more flavorful variety and add a few diced serrano peppers. I'm tempted to try scrambling the eggs with the bright-green pesto mixed in, which is almost certain to result in tasty, green eggs.
