Hi all! Yours truly was one of the people sickened by the Hummus Shirazi at Taste of Chicago (and yes I did report it to the Health Department). You can read about the samonella outbreak in this Chicago Tribune article. In additional to the stomach trouble, I had the worst case of chills in my entire life. Rob wanted to take me to the doctor but as you know, I have an aversion to doctors. Since I had already been to a doctor once this year for a sinus infection, I didn’t want to go again! I did agree that if I didn’t feel well enough to go to work that I would go to the doctor. I wasn’t feeling great but I felt well enough to go to work. Luckily in this case, I sit at a desk for most of my day and I’m not too far from the bathrooms. I stealthily chugged generic Pepto at work too. What a charming co-worker I must be. LOL
Rob felt fine because he only had a taste of the taste portion. Yes, I ate more than my fair share and boy did I pay royally for it. Rob wanted to buy more tickets and get a full size portion but being the cheap (I prefer frugal) person that I am, I said we’re out of our discounted tickets and we are not buying more.
Other than being betrayed by hummus, things are going fine. I’ve just been really busy and spending a lot of time tending to my garden in the evening. I have some garden bounty pics that I have to upload. I’ve already picked a bunch of zucchini, yellow ball squash, yellow squash, grape tomatoes, radishes, and cucumbers. I even had a few Roma tomatoes that are ripe and I picked one eggplant too.
I hope all is well with you and I hope to get my backlog of pics and posts up very soon. Thanks for all of your great comments. I will be visiting and commenting on your blogs very soon. Take Care!!! 🙂
