Last week I had to fly to Melbourne for the day, leaving at 4pm and not getting there until almost 10pm. Knowing it’s pretty slim pickin’s for veggies on flights (the budget airlines, anyway!) I decided to pack a hearty salad for dinner that would see me through, wouldn’t stink out the plane, could stand not being refrigerated, and also wouldn’t get soggy and sad. A fair few hearty ingredients in this salad mean maximum flavour, but also maximum beetroot stain, so is pretty ugly when mixed! Therefore, wasn’t going to share with you. But hey, you’re understanding folk, you won’t mind an ugly salad! Will you?
I’ve also been thinking a little bit about this space for next year, and have decided to pass the Meatless Monday mantle onto someone else from January. If you’re interested, please drop me a line at stacey[@]theveggiemama.com. First in, best dressed!
