Sorry about going missing all day yesterday. I was on the go basically all day. I slept over at my friend’s the night before because we work together so we were just going to have a chill night, go for a walk etc and then go in to work the next morning. Well I got there and her sister insisted on dragging us out to Martini’s(even though we were completely tired and had to work early) for food and, well, martinis. I tried my absolute best to refuse a martini and to refuse half the food they ordered, but her sister practically shoved the stuff down my throat. So I couldn’t really escape it. I have no pictures unfortunately but this place was so neat and so fancy. I hadn’t anticipated going out anywhere that night so I was pretty dressed down but luckily since we went so darn late it wasn’t too busy. Her sister and her sister’s friend even paid the entire bill of over $100. It was a nice treat. I think I would have enjoyed it better though if I knew a bit in advance that we would be going there so I could have tried to eat a later supper or something…
Here’s a list of what was ordered. I basically tried a bit of everything since she put everything on my plate. Haha.
– Wildberry martini
– Bread with oil and herb dipping sauce
– Goat cheese and mushroom tart
– Pig tails with sweet potato frites and three flavoured mayo dipping sauces
– Vanilla Creme Brulee
– A three flavour sorbet dish
Yeah. It was a crapload of food. It all tasted delicious but I seriously tried so hard to say no to her. Oh well though, I had relatively tiny portions of most of the food.
Anyway, this was all Tuesday night. Then I worked all day yesterday. Then I got home and had dinner and suddenly got this absolutely terrible stomach ache. I could hardly stand up straight. And I have no idea what triggered it because I didn’t eat anything out of the ordinary. I lied down for a couple hours and it eased up a little, then my mom got me some Pepto Bismol which seemed to help a bit.
I really wanted to get better because I had planned on going out dancing for Hip Hop Night at one of our local bars with a friend and another guy from work and I didn’t want to bail. So I sucked it up and forced myself to go anyway. The pain was constant so it didn’t go away throughout the entire night of dancing, but it was tame enough that I could dance and somewhat ignore it.
Then I got home, went to bed, slept it off, and now I feel pretty much all better. I’ve had stomach issues before that were way worse than last night so I was really afraid that it would end up much worse than it did. I think I was lucky. I have to go get an abdominal ultrasound soon, I’m pretty sure I already have the appointment booked.
It was just a whole bunch of vegetables cooked in a pan with Dijonnaise, balsamic vinegar, a tiny bit of hot sauce and some vegetable broth, with a little bit of chicken and some whole wheat noodles thrown in, then topped with some goat cheese.
I eat all of these foods on a regular basis so I don’t think any of them really could have triggered the massive stomach attack. Who knows. Sigh.
