What’s worse than sitting next to a person eating an onion sandwich on a flight?
Eating one yourself…
Hard to believe we’ve lost a whole day of our lives to travel today. Kinda sad how fast time moves when you’re flying through time zones.
Other than long lines and congestion, we made it to the airport with enough time to grab some snacks for lunch (although I always have bars and fruit in case we don’t!)
Being on an airplane is one of those time I wish I didn’t have to photograph for the blog. Getting a giant camera with a short-frame lens out from under the seat with a tray table down is quite the production. So this trip, I put my jacket down as a tablecloth and took a tablescape photo before we boarded. Sweet!
All you see above is healthy travel food lunch picnic for two.
First off, I mixed a packet of Amazing Grass berry into a water bottle (this is the only time I purchase water bottles – I always have my reusable with me for regular water but it’s hard to get the wheat grass taste out of those)
I don’t really like the way this tastes in a bottle, but it’s mentally pleasing to drink and a good way to feel like you’re getting something green when boxed salads are $10 a piece.
The main part of lunch was a Thai Tofu Wrap. I was going to get a delicious looking spinach and red pepper wrap but at last minute I saw the ingredient list had raw red onion. #fail. So I grabbed this one instead. It sounded good! I did note the cooked veggies, but cooked onions can be eaten around.
Not so much. They were hardly cooked and while I did my best to fork-pick them out and I have had onion breath the ENTIRE flight. Blaaaah. I can’t get rid of it, even with Altoids and fruit!
The wrap (which I shared with Matt) was good other than the onions. The smoked tofu was my favorite!
Also shared was a vanilla bean yogurt with the last of the Frog Hollow Granola which we combined with the fruit cup I had from Starbucks breakfast for a really good parfait!
Annnnnd an apple. It was a good lunch! (That banana is for tomorrow’s breakfast 🙂 Always grab one from the airport if your pantry is empty!)
I also have bars galore and Gina’s Macaroons left! Perhaps these will come into play for dinner or dessert on the next flight?
We’re in Kansas City, MO right now (YAY more free Wifi! The world is becoming more and more blogger friendly!) I think this is the second smallest airport I’ve been in though (the first being Syracuse – where I was for 6 hours on a business trip during my 24th birthday and it sucked). I just went out looking for some dinner and found a brew pub, a Starbucks and some soggy sandwiches. I think I will be having macaroons for dinner after all!
Almost time to begin leg #2 of 3 on our journey to Charlottesville. Don’t forget about the 2.5 hour midnight drive ahead.
Really, really excited about seeing our house again. And doing laundry. I always get nervous that something broke while we were gone, so I hope it’s a happy reunion!
