External sensitivity to allergies.
Powdered Sugar contains corn starch to prevent caking.
So on Saturday, my lovely wife had her lady friends over for their monthly book club meeting, and they had a brunch with many tasty snacks. I went grocery shopping with Andrew at this time. When I came home I helped clean up. I saw on the counter a bit of powdered sugar, and wiped it off with my hand. I did not wash my hands afterwords.
You can guess where this is going. As Corn Starch is very Corny, I had a very bad reaction. My brain exploded and my body still feels like I fought a bear.
It took me a day to figure out what I “ate,” as I didn’t eat anything I shouldn’t have. Then I said “Oh the powdered sugar” and my wife said “that has corn starch in it.” That solved the puzzle.
I do have to say it’s interesting seeing how things effect me now, and in some cases, like the aforementioned, how sensitive to the “bad things” I really am. It was also fairly lame, as it took me out of commission for a good 16 hours.
Last night we had our little Oscar Party, and it was a great time. As a unit, (with Lindsey’s mom in town as our party guest), we made..
Queso, Fried Mac n Cheese Balls, Tiny apple pies, Garlic Flank Steak, Chimi Churri Sauce, Stuffed Peppers, and I have to say, we had a great time. Naturally I stuck to the steak, sauce, and peppers, as all were made “Luke safe.”
We couldn’t have asked for a better night, Teddy was in a great mood, and everyone had a blast, and ate their fill of tasty treats.
Tonight we are having Chicken with Marinara, over something I assume.. I just put the stuff in the crock pot. Costco has nice safe Marinara I can neat.
Side note before I go, Costco also has an amazing salsa that is my new boyfriend. (Melissa is fine with it, she loves the stuff too) (the yellow medium is what she brought home, don’t know if Costco has others.) http://mateossalsa.com/salsas/
I recommend it.
Talk to you later.
