I find meals on planes very exciting. They break up the monotony of the journey and provide an excellent excuse to overdose on carbs. Meals are definitely something I miss on budget flights. Todays meal on BA exceeded my expectations. I chose the meze salad with a chocolate and raspberry tart. The salad was light and more than acceptable. It’s nice not to feel like I’m weighted down by a stodgy ready meal. I decided to be slightly unorthodox and put butter on my pitta (this is what happens when you detox for 3 weeks). Oh how I’ve missed butter. And the dessert, well, it was amazing. I’ve ignored the fact that the tart has a life of over a year (seems a tad long to me) I wish I had wandered round the plane mine sweeping tarts.
