Is what I wish someone had said to me last night.
I signed up to receive healthy recipes via email so (a) I could learn to cook outside my go to norms of chili and spaghetti and (b) I could eat better.
Last night I tried my hand at making Shrimp Scampi.
Those who know me know that I do not eat fish or seafood.
Every now and again I will eat shrimp.
After last night, it might be a while before mama ever goes there again!
I went shopping, even bought the fresh shrimp from the seafood counter getting all into Chef Lisa mode oh la la.
It tasted fine too. Actually it was pretty good! Shrimp scampi over pasta with a salad.
And then in the middle of the night, yuck.
I was quite ill.
And now even the thought of shrimp makes me gag.
If that wasn’t bad enough, I missed work today too.
BECAUSE OF MY OWN COOKING!
How sad is that?
So much for getting my Chef hat on.
It was so not cool missing today since my bosses just paid for the firm to experience a Go Ape adventure this past Friday.
I put it together. I was there. I had fun.
And then Monday, um, I am sorry…I cannot cook and will need to be out today because I’ll be spending the day in the bathroom.
I am a decent cook. I am not really sure what happened.
I did google it though.
“Can eating shrimp make you sick?”
Cuz it is the only thing I did different.
I did find that you can get sick from shrimp due to bacteria.
Who the hell knows?
I did lose 10 pounds from this experience.
Not really. I wish.
But it sure did feel like it!
All I know is, I will not be having shrimp anytime soon and I sure as heck will not be eating any shrimp I personally cook!
This little bugger did me in and took me down for a day….
“I WILL NEVER FORGIVE YOU!!”
That is how I currently feel about shrimp and future shrimp cooking projects.
