Stomach buggers

Food poisoning or stomach bug can kiss my fat bootay! T and I had something awful this past weekend, and mine hit right before we were about to see Contagion. I honestly didn't see the irony in that until my friend pointed it out. Yes, I can laugh now, but I wasn't laughing when I had to run to the toilet AFTER buying our tickets to the movie. TMI.. I had the worst stomach pains and was doubled over for what seemed like eternity and then had to take a cab home. I'm not sure what's more upsetting, missing the movie, or having to lie in bed for the afternoon. Thankfully, it was only a 24-hour bug. At least, I hope that's just what it was. T had a similar experience, although he describes his stomach pain as not being as bad as mine. (I was wishing for my life to end, NO JOKE!!)

We can't seem to catch a break these days. :( On the flip side, I'm hoping we receive great news later this week, and for that, all this is worth it!
T made us a chicken and veggie omelete for breakfast on that fateful Saturday morning.
the day started out just like any other..

but I was on the couch all night afterwards.. I'm not sure why having the stomach bug makes me want to eat more, but I asked T to make me a plate full of pasta after I had seemingly recovered.
and then he made me some chicken noodle soup with mushrooms and onions later that night.
Sunday wasn't as eventful since T was sick and I was still recovering on the couch. We had made plans for T's birthday dinner on Saturday night and also to meet T's mom on Sunday night, but needless to say, we didn't make any of those scheduled plans!

Yesterday's eats:
I started baking a sweet potato in the oven yesterday, but in the middle of the process, got impatient and ended up cooking the rest in the microwave.
sprinkled with cinnamon, nutmeg, and brown sugar- t'was delicious!
Lunch was an oven baked pork chop rubbed in evoo, sea salt, pepper, and bbq sauce.
the pork was complemented with brown rice, seaweed, steamed kale, and kimchi.
T made us a delicious SHRIMP. FRIED. RICE! for dinner
and some salmon that was marinated in Korean spices.

Exciting news: T enlisted the help of his friend to help me organize and spice up this blog. I can't wait! I'm so tired of not having any sort of organization to this blog- my posts are seriously everywhere!
