By the time the flight attendant reached our seats they were out of the vegetarian meal option (my typical best bet). Adam had the insipid “chicken” with polenta and spinach in a “tomato” sauce. It was totally inedible. The sauce was sickeningly sweet and oddly fruity. Terrible. The chicken was a mushy bit of over-chewed bubble gum. Horrifying.
Luckily, the flight attendant offered me a Muslim Halal meal that was intended for a passenger that apparently missed his flight- Lamb vindaloo with rice and green beans. It was actually quite good. I generally love Indian food. Although it wasn’t the best, the spices were aggressive and the rice was amazingly good. I was kind to my poor husband. We shared my meal 🙂
