My Favorite Meal...Ruined

My weekend was ruined, and THIS was the cluprit:
Bourbon chicken and rice from Asain Chao at the food court.

I order this everytime I eat at this particular mall, and have always loved it. Sadly, I fear that I will never be able to eat it again. This brought on the most horrible stomach pains that lasted all day long.

They lasted while I at the movie theater with Mom and Julie to see "All About Steve." (Not a great movie, btw).

I was almost doubled-over in pain on our trip to Hobby Lobby after the movie.

I sat through a (short) wedding with the dull ache in my stomach the whole time.

I suffered through part of a reception as the pain got worse. Surprisingly, I was able to eat the delicious food there without any further pain/sickness.

I attended a girls' night at my cousin's house where we played 2 rounds of Apples to Apples. And laughed a lot. Still feeling kinda yucky at 11:00 when I left.

Watched the end of the Wolverine movie with Luke and his friend Michael while the pain slowly got a little better.

Went to church this morning, went out to eat at Hot Dog Shoppe (our new Sunday lunch tradition), and spent the afternoon with my aunt, cousin, grandma, and new cat Ellie, all with the mild pain still there. About 30 hours after I ate the chicken, I am now feeling basically back to normal, just in time to make a pizza and watch a movie with Luke in a little bit! I love Sunday night chilling :-)

So I have no idea what the deal was with that chicken. It didn't exactly make me nauseous or sick, I just had this strange pain in my stomach and the fear that I WAS going to get sick all through the day and night Saturday. Has this ever happened to anyone? I'm thinking the chicken was just bad or something.

I knew I should have skipped the chicken and ordered this amazing mushroom garlic pizza from Sbarro like Julie did...she let me try a garlicky mushroom and it was amazing. Next time, I'm getting that!


  1. So sorry you had a bad food experience! I remember one time I went to Wendy's (back when I ate meat) and bit into the chicken sandwich and there was a huge vein. So gross! One bad food experience can ruin it forever. I do love Sbarro's Pizza though!

  2. Oh no! Any time I eat something bad, I have that pain, not actual vomiting. I have a tough tummy, so I always think that must be why I don't throw up, I just have pain.

  3. I actually was sick all of this week from food poisoning and it was horrible! So, I feel your pain and I'm glad you are feeling better!

  4. Wow, that's no good. :( I LOVE Chineese food too. Doesn't sound like a great way to spend your weekend. :(

  5. So sorry you felt so yucky from it! Yeah, when I have chinese food it's kind of hit or miss for me. Sometimes I feel ok, and sometimes my stomach kills me too! Glad you're feeling better though :-)

  6. That's so sad! I hate it when good foods get ruined for you - after several months though, maybe you can get it again and not get sick. A long break just might do it, no?


Thanks so much for taking the time to read and comment! I read and appreciate each and every one. Blessings to you!
