Worth the Tummy Trouble?Posted: March 16, 2011
It looks like most of us absolutely hate the dentist! I’m glad I’m not alone on this one 🙂 While the sound of metal tools scraping my teeth and the offensive “dentist aftertaste” were in full swing this afternoon, I actually ended up complimenting my dental hygienist. She didn’t ask me any questions while she was working and she was super fast. Done and done!
Pre-dentist I made a trip to Target (!!!) and a bought cute sundress (it will be making an appearance this weekend) and a pair of sunglasses. I’m so not a sun glasses snob. $16.99? Works for me! If I bought an expensive pair, I know I’d sit on them within the first week. Story of my life. Do you splurge on sun glasses?
Before heading out, I made sure to pack some snacks to keep my hanger at bay 😉
Some H20, a Fuji apple (I am an apple snob. Fuji all the way), some Kashi crackers and a Cinnamon Raisin Gnu Bar. I can’t lose with these things! They’re all so good! You have a couple more hours before I pick a winner for my Gnu Bar GIveaway!
Okay – so for dinner Cory, my Dad and I went to Hard Times Cafe for some excellent chili. Ever since my dad suggested this place on Monday, I had corn bread and chili on the brain.
The menu has several chilies to choose from, so they give each table a little sampler to share. It’s so helpful! (My apologies for the orange-y photos. The lighting was terrible.)
This picture makes them look so gross! But they were all SO tasty. I went with the Terlingua Red Chili and it was on point.
I think the phenomenal corn bread deserves it’s own close up 😉
So the chili was great, but only minutes after eating only a few bites, I knew I made a mistake. I’ve mentioned before that I have Crohn’s, so I am no stranger to tummy troubles. I know there are certain foods that I should avoid (like, say…chili!) but sometimes I can’t help myself.
So my question is, are there any foods that make you feel yucky after eating them – but sometimes you eat them anyway and just accept the fact that you’ll have to deal with the consequences?
As you can imagine, I’m feeling a little less-than-stellar, so I’m going to call it a night! I hope you are having a relaxing evening, friends!
Catch ya in the morning 😉
