Mains
- Roast chicken with a creamy wild mushroom risotto and sun blushed tomatoes

Thankyou Slimpy. I agree about the need for a smaller " extra bites " menu on a 7 and a half hour flight !

By the time we have our usual Eggs Benedict in the Clubhouse, followed by an ice cream for me and a fruit salad for my Missus.......then lunch on the flight.....followed by the cheese course.......I will be stuffed by the time we land at Logan !

After settling into our hotel, we will stroll over to Maceys so my Missus can buy a years supply of Clinique make up at Maceys ( it's half the UK price ! ) After 47 years of wedded bliss, I could say that she needs quite alot now....but I won't because that would be rude ! :cool: Then it's a gentle walk around Boston Common to watch the locals walking their pooches followed by a Sam Adams light and a burger at the little Irish Bar opposite our hotel. It's become something of a tradition for us over the years.

Very helpful thanks, I'll be on VS105 in a week's time. Does anyone have the menu for the return by any chance, including VS106?

Thanks

Same menu yesterday on the VS65 - the crab cakes were very popular with almost everyone wanting to try them but, with it being a 747, only 4 portions loaded so most (including me) were disappointed.

Looks like this menu applies to VS15, 27, 49, 29, 57, 31, 87, 89, 97, 33,83, 43, 951, 63, 65, 71, 73, 75, 77, 85, 93, 109, 119, 121, 125, 127, 161 and 163 as well (if my eyesight can be trusted on the small print on the menu!)

I had the tomato and mozzarella starter (fairly tasteless) and the salmon main course (salmon was very nice but, again, the salad was fairly tasteless with negligible orange or feta involved).
