Airport Eating

Posted on January 28, 2012. Filed under: Uncategorized |

I had to go to Jacksonville for one night on Thursday.  My flight was at 8 pm out of National Airport so I left work promptly at 6 pm to take the metro to the airport.  I arrive early most places and the airport is no exception. The anxiety of sitting on the metro knowing I could be late is more than I can bear. I also have a routine at the airport and hate being rushed.  I need to buy water, mints and like to use the bathroom all before sitting down at the gate waiting to board.  When I’m flying during a meal time, I also need to make sure I eat enough.  The idea of being hungry on the plane also brings on a small amount of anxiety.

I wasn’t even all that hungry when I got to the airport, but knew I would be hungry as soon as we took off.  I was very tempted by Five Guys, but instead opted for California Tortilla.  I got a salad, but I couldn’t resist the chips and queso option as well.

No reason to take a picture of the queso, it wouldn’t photograph well.

After I ate the salad and chips – I wanted something sweet.  Enter, Skittles Riddles.

I never tried these before, but I guess the idea is that the color of the skittle doesn’t taste like you think it would.  I didn’t even notice, I just ate them as quickly as possible and proceeded to not feel great after that!

I guess you could say I was satisfied with my airport food. I was glad I got some dinner in me, since I wasn’t going to land until 10 pm and probably would have opted for fast food at that point.

We are about to go meet friends from out of town for lunch at District Commons. Stephanie went there a few weeks ago and thought it was great, so I’m excited to try it.  I will try to remember to take some photos.
