What up peeps, creeps, and awesome foodies! I know it’s been a while since my last blog post, but life threw me a few lemons and the Fat Girl had to make some lemonade! What brings me here today is my first and I do mean my very first allergic reaction to food! 😰
I was offsite working for the past 2 days and upon completion of my work day yesterday, I told myself that I would get food on the way home. Wasn’t in the mood for anything specific, so I went to West Wing Café in Northwest DC. Typical sandwich shop with hoagies, wraps, clubs, panini’s etc., and since it was so much to choose from I asked my favorite question; “What’s good?” The employee told me his favorites one of which was the Cajun Chicken Panini (Cajun chicken, lettuce, tomato, avocado, Basil Pesto). Instead of the panini, I asked for a spinach wrap.
Paid, called the uber, and went cruising home chatting with Ezy. After settling in the house, I bit into the wrap. YUCK!!! What the hell is this? The seasoning was not “Cajun” to me on the chicken or at least in my mind it wasn’t. I opened the wrap and the seasoning didn’t look too appetizing to me, so I immediately trashed it and was pissed! What to eat now? I don’t want to cook? UberEats . . . NO! Carryout . . . NO! Spend more money . . . HELL TO THE NO! LOL, I pouted like a baby and went to lay down. Fifteen minutes later I vomited and after taking my clothes off, I discovered a rash on my inner thigh. 😡😡😡
Nurse Bri to the rescue . . . called my sandbox boo in a panic and she immediately told me what to do. Sent her the pic and she was like . . . “YIKES – where’s the Benadryl!” Girl bye! I don’t have any of that and if I do its expired. Luckily, I found hydrocortisone. I’m saying all this to say that it was so weird that I had an allergic reaction after partaking in what I love the most in this world . . . EATING! I was disappointed, sad, hungry, and annoyed at the same time. After taking a hot shower and calming my nerves, I called West Wing Cafe to inquire about the ingredients. Why did I even bother wasting my time; after explaining what happened all he could say was “Oh I’m so sorry.”
I guess with growing pains comes change and I plan to find out soon. Needless to say you don’t have to worry about me going back to that establishment again!!! T-Mac is going to the doctor however, to get an allergy test. Time to add Benadryl to my emergency stash along with more Pepto-Bismol tablets (tmi I know lol).
See ya on the 26th at 10:06 am sharp . . . HAPPY EATING! 😋😘
