Impromptu picnic

British Airways and Gate Gourmet, are holding fresh talks today aimed at thrashing out the terms of a new and improved contract, ahead of a deadline of 5pm tomorrow that will see the caterer file for administration unless the two can reach agreement.

Gate Gourmet, which has made clear that it can't survive without reforms to working practices, has agreed to reinstate some of the workers but will not rehire the "militant" staff who it believes spearheaded the unofficial action.

Well, I say, stuff Gate Gourmet and the TGWU and lets go for the impromptu picnic.

Back in 1998, I used to travel BA between the USA and the UK on a regular basis. I used to dread the 8 hour flight to San Francisco for two reasons. I am a smoker and I hate shit food.

Solution: nicotine patches, a good book and my own picnic.

Dijon Ham Salad Sandwiches

1-1/2 cups diced baked ham
1/2 cup sliced celery
2 green onions, sliced with tops
3 Tbs. mayonnaise
1 Tbs. Dijon-style mustard
1/2 tsp. dried savoury or 1/4 tsp. dried dill
Fresh baby spinach leaves, frilly leaf lettuce
1 tomato, thinly sliced (yellow, if available)
4 croissants, split


Combine finely diced baked ham, celery, green onions, mayo, mustard and herb. Toss well to coat ham. Layer spinach and lettuce leaves on bottom halves of croissants. Top with ham salad, tomato and top halves of croissants.

Anchor sandwiches for travelling by pushing in two picks for each one. Top picks with stuffed olives.

Lets have a ban of the eating of prepacked, by union workers, food in public places

Now that would be a 'GOOD ONE'
