It sure is nice to be home again. Don’t get me wrong, I love Maui and spending time with my family but air travel with kids is the pits. There is nothing worse than leaving paradise – except the messed up experience of being herded through airport security and then the agriculture checkpoint with two cranky kids and a ton of carry-on luggage. It’s like having Gilbert Gottfried scream in your face, “HA! HA! VACATION IS OVER!”
To gird ourselves for our long flight, we stopped at the Whole Paycheck to pick up some take out to eat on the plane.
We got a pound of carnitas:
Mmmm mmmm mmmm. Very tasty and well-seasoned. It did taste more like kahlua pig than carnitas, though.
A medium container of roasted squash (winter and summer) with sage:
This dish was way too heavy on the sage and oil. I wouldn’t order it again.
A small container of curried broccoli salad:
The salad was tasty but not really Paleo because it has canola oil based mayo and sugar in the ingredients.
Despite the squash snafu, this was a nice meal for the plane ride home. Since the Whole Paycheck is near the airport, we’re definitely going to stock up here the next time we arrive in Maui and pick up to-go goodies when we depart.1
