Crazy Weekend & Food Poisoning


Food poisoning. Need I say more? I went wine tasting and such with my mother on Saturday. We had some fabulous wine and it was beautiful. And then she wanted to go this little earthy-crunchy, wierdass tea place. Pretty much I don't think they believe in washing anything...especially their hands. I had a tomato basil mozzarella sandwich and some soup and a delicious chai iced tea... twenty minutes into eating, I was in the bathroom.

Here's me, happy as a clam with my iced tea. Even the meal looked good...

But it wasn't. It made me SICK. And my mom got sick too. It was BAD. I felt like crap all weekend. UGH.

Even so, I needed to get things done. I made some healthy pasta bake from my own recipe!
