Butifarra, Pasta Swirls & Fine Green Beans.

Saturday 23rd July 2011

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. 😉

    So did you take the picture last night? And what did Z eat on the plane?

    I also bring lunches with me when we travel by air; only I make mine cold, so as to avoid the whole ‘need-to-find-someone-to-heat-this-up’ hassle.

    It looks really tasty and fun! Bummer. 😦

    • Yeah, I took the photo the night trying to be super-organised.

      Luckily, I had also made a sandwich & a pot of grapes. He was as happy as Larry watching a movie on my phone and eating his picnic.

      It was a pretty good excuse for my blog post too. 😉

    Oh – and where are you flying to? How long will you be gone? All 3 of you, I imagine?

  3. How frustrating for you. I don’t envy the person who first opens the microwave when you get home.
