Missed you! Believe me, I KNOW perfectly well how those things GO! No fun. Sorry you wanted to trust someone and had to pay for it the hard way. Just thankful you are starting to feel like keeping in touch. Seems all the incentive and joy leaves when you experience something like this. With time you will be your old self. Good thing you have been member of this site and know that before this you attempted to prepare meals that were nourishing and protected your body from any kind of trauma. As I said, it will take time for your body to get back to normal. Just keep the fluids flowing.

Looking for your input in the days to come and wishing you and DH good health and better days again.

Glad you're feeling better, Karen.

nothing quite as awful as food poisoning!

Glad you are feeling better.
Wine is the food that completes the meal.

You are all such good friends! Thanks so much for your good wishes. We are actually planning to eat some dinner tonight for the first time in many days. I simmered some chicken earlier today in water with seasonings, onions and garlic. I'll add some celery and carrots to the broth and also some noodles. Nice light dinner.

Dina - Muchas gracias, amiga. No problema. Nos sentimos mucho mejores hoy. No mas queso malo! (Disculpame - mi espanol es no bueno).
Saludos, Karen

Karen - Glad you are back - Very sorry to hear about being sick. Bad food can make the worst kind of sick. Got on the wrong side of a Hot Pastrami sandwitch in a famous NYC deli one night. Haven't had one since.

Best wishes for a full andspeedy recovery.


I guess that it had to happen - When I was in Mexico, I was introduced to Microban and told to use it on all veggies. Iwas just in Virginia for a week and saw it advertised there now. I guess as a follow on to the tomato / jalapeno thing.

Wow, we just ate some dinner and are feeling SO much better. Tomorrow, we're having company for brunch, so good thing we are feeling like human beings again. The culprit was some absolutely beautiful and delicious homemade queso panela, I think. We are usually pretty careful about what we eat and I am a bit OCD about cleanliness in food prep (degree in public health many moons ago). Another of the problems here is uncertain refrigeration history of items bought in stores, especially this time of year, when we have big storms and sporadic electrical outages. Ah well, paradise does have a few downsides...thanks again for all your kind words and good wishes.

Saludos, Karen
