I’ll Pass on the Airplane Food
Last night I stayed in with my boyfriend and watched the very well-reviewed film, “Up in the Air.” Filled with humor and emotion that wasn’t too outrageous, and led by some fab actors, I have to admit that it’s definitely one of the best films I’ve seen so far in 2010. Even though the film really has nothing to do with cooking, I got to thinking about a particular kind of food. The wonderful cuisine served on an airplane. Note my sarcasm.
Airplane food, at least in the United States, makes me cringe, gag and wrinkle my nose all at the same time. I’m not a regular airplane flier like George Clooney’s character in the movie, but I’m on a plane at least a couple times a year. How do I avoid those meals? I find a filling snack recipe from Recipe4Living, cook it and pack it up for the car ride to the airport. You’ll have to get rid of it before you hit security, but it’s better than what you’ll probably get on the plane.
Here are a few good snack recipes:
I’m pretty open to most new food experiences, but not when it comes to airplane food. There’s just something that severely bothers me about the food being packaged together in a little tray, especially the amazingly leather-like meat. Even though you can usually choose a meat or veggie meal, I still feel at odds. I just want some bread and butter or peanuts or maybe a cookie.
Are you a fan of airplane food? My dad sure is. He’ll devour all of his food and mine. I don’t know if he just gets really hungry or enjoys it. Blah!
