Day 1 of Las Vegas

My wife is correct in that it seems like this was all a dream.  For our tenth wedding anniversary, my in-laws had not only bought us round trip tickets in first class to fly out to Las Vegas, not only allow us to use their extra condo, just minutes from the Strip, but also take our two little boys on their own vacation for fun.  So, for five days going over our anniversary date, we had an incredible Las Vegas vacation, worry free and child free.

We got in Wednesday evening and that meant that we had a late flight, with First Class seating meaning that we were fed a glorious dinner menu on American Airlines.

Well, this isn't what the normal person gets, considering we had First Class tickets, but this looks pretty good for a dinner of airline food.  This was a baked lemon and pepper chicken, with a rice dish, some vegetables, and a salad with a dinner roll.  My roll didn't arrive yet.  For airplane food, again, it was okay.  I'd give it a 2 and 1/2 out of 5, maybe.  The rice mix was okay, it was a bit al dente, it was salty, it has some spice flavors, it was nice.  The chicken was cooked, it wasn't like rubber and it wasn't solid and there was a lot of lemon pepper on it so it had some flavoring.  There was a lemon and butter sauce, which tasted like the fake and imitation butter we used to cook with at Old Country Buffet.  The vegetables, like the snap peas and carrots were mush.  The salad was made almost entirely of the core of the lettuce and the other inedible parts and the ranch sauce was like pure fatty thick ranch dressing.  The roll was hard on the outside and crumbly on the inside, all a result of heating frozen food. It was better than a pack of nuts or pretzels.  A 2 and 1/2 out of me.
