Travel day part 2 - plane food

Writing this up at 5.45am from CBR while everyone else sleeps around me. I've been awake since 4.30am and despite trying, sleep has eluded me so thought I'd put the time to good use.

We were flying economy with Virgin from Manchester and this was the menu we were presented with:

Andy and I chose the chicken curry and the children chose the meatballs. They arrived looking like this:

The curry was really tasty - a hint of coconut, but with some spice - and the chicken was still tender rather than over microwaved chewy. I mixed everything together - chicken and sauce, ride and spinach, and found that worked well. The salad was refreshing and you can't really go wrong with crackers and Boursin. The GU pot was tasty but rich.

The children liked their meatballs, but left the mash and peas. They also ate the crackers (minus cheese) and GU pot. That wasn't really enough for 2 teenagers, so out came the Boots meal deals - ham sandwich with Doritos for Brodie and chicken and stuffing sandwich with plain crisps for Isabelle. No photos of those as they're just standard Boots sandwiches. We also got 2 packs of chicken salad, chicken and bacon and chicken and stuffing sandwiches (love a triple pack on the meal deal!) for me and Andy which both got eaten and enjoyed.

I slept through afternoon tea, but can report from the rest of the family that the sandwiches were 'meh', the crisps okay and the little chocolate bar was lovely.

Once we got to CBR, we stopped at Old Port Royals (OPR) to pick up our refillable mugs (managed to get 4 different coloured ones, but they all have white handles now), some milk to go with cereal that we have brought with us for quick breakfasts in our room, and a cookie and croissant for Izzy and Brodie using snack credits. Sorry, no photos as by that time my body felt like it was past midnight and the last thing on my mind was photographing snacks

Got breakfast and lunch at Be Our Guest today
