Today is a travel day, thus the Tupperware box. We are off on holiday & so I prepared this for Zephy to have for lunch on the plane. You don’t even get a bag of peanuts on the low-cost airlines.
I sourced the butifarra sausage from my local butcher a few days ago. They aren’t cheap at €2.25 each but they are made on site and they aren’t gristly & full of bread crumbs.
I buy this pasta in France. Its funny what different ingredients you can find only 200 miles down the road. I can’t find it in Barcelona. It’s nothing special but it holds a sauce well & it looks fun to eat.
The fine green beans are a guilty pleasure. They are out of season locally but Kenya seems to be able to produce them by the truck load. I don’t see then often but when I do I afford myself a handful. Beside Zephy could them every day of the week. They’re a sure thing.
I put it all together last night so I didn’t have to get up at the crack of dawn, and put it in the fridge.
We had a lunchtime flight so as you can never get anyone at the airport to warm it through I decided to do so at home. In to the micro it went & and unfortunately that’s where it stayed.
It was only when we were heading for the airport in the taxi that I remembered that I’d left behind in the microwave.
So for the second time this week my blog entry is again something that Zephy didn’t eat.
Maybe a name change is in order;
Not quite as catchy. 😉
