I was given a box of phyllo pastry at an event I went to last year. I usually make my own and left this in the freezer until I had a recipe in mind. When I got zucchini blossoms I knew the perfect snack to make using them. These mini zucchini quiches were the result.
When I first realized I was sucrose intolerant I had a lot of changes to make. One of them was ordering diabetic meals when we flew. This meant I got my food first. But because Dave and I like to eat together, I would wait for his meal to be served. The dessert on these meals is never appealing or sugar-free for that matter. I tended to leave that part of the meal most flights. Dave suggested that as I was not eating the dessert I should not bother ordering this option. Also, the meals have been uninspiring, with fish being the order of the day. Sometimes for breakfast as well as dinner! I stopped ordering this special meal about 5 years ago. Then, last October on our way to Johannesburg on SAA I was offered a diabetic snack. I let the air steward know I had not ordered it.
She took one look and said she would not eat it! It was a rice cracker sandwich that looked awful. Thankfully there was a spare standard snack and I thought that was it. Especially as on the onward flight to London I was given an ordinary meal. I checked my profile and it did not have the diabetic meal selected so I left it at that. But for some reason, on our next 3 regional flights I was presented with this meal. I decided there was a conspiracy when it happened on BA. I have never had a diabetic meal on British Airways and wondered how on earth they made the connection? Thankfully I have not had to endure any of these options as they have become uninspiring to say the least. And I cannot understand why? Surely something as simple as mini zucchini quiches would be more appealing?
