Confession: I only fly AirTran now because I know they have onboard WiFi.
Yes, I paid $9.95 for internet for a 2 hour flight – don’t judge. 😉 Worth every penny if you ask me!
After the little glitch was fixed in the program I was trying to send my e-blasts out of, the rest of the morning working from home was a breeze. 🙂 I even managed to have a very productive conference call while I was loading my car up with all the junk I’ll need over the next week.
Since the theme for my lunch was ‘eat anything perishable left in the fridge,’ I ended up with quite a random pairing of eats.
First there is the tempeh sloppy joes I made with tempeh, onions, tomatoes, and my special sauce of ketchup, bbq sauce, and spicy mustard.
I served the sloppy joe in an Arnold’s Thin (three cheers for our Healthy Living Summit sponsor!) with a slice of swiss cheese.
I had a random plantain I bought a couple of weeks ago that was just black enough to be made into plantain chips – or at least my version of chips. 🙂 I sliced the plantain and baked the ‘chips’ at 375 for 15 minutes and then flipped before baking an additional 15 minutes.
They came out really well. They were at that stage where the plantains came out savory as opposed to sweet. Yum. 🙂
I also had some carrot fries baking in the oven that I served with ketchup.
The security line at OIA was a NIGHTMARE! In fact, it has been a nightmare the last couple of times I’ve flown. They really need to come up with an organization plan rather than just having the masses fend for themselves while fighting tooth and nail to get through the metal detectors. 🙁
Despite getting to the airport an hour and half before my flight I arrived at my gate just as they were boarding. Any later and they would have been long gone.
Fun fact: This is my first time EVER flying without checking a bag! Keep in mind this is my 4th time on a plane for 2010 and I flew 8 times in 2009! Crazy, right?
I felt like such a grown up actually having a bag to put in the above compartment. 🙂
Another thing I’ve discovered I love about AirTran – XM radio! You know what station I’m currently rocking to. 😉
Once the flight was in the air I dug into my packed snack of Naturally Nutty Peanut Butter and an Apple.
Now it’s time to buckle down and get to work. I’ve found I’m 10x more productive doing blog work on airplanes because I have nothing to distract me. 🙂
Washington D.C. – Here I Come!! 🙂
