So maybe you’ve read by now that I took a little trip to the lovely Australian Emergency Room this week… oh you haven’t?
Long story short, this week I’ve been in bed, curled up in a ball gripping my belly for far longer than I care to say. There are some other very un-pretty things going on as well, not worth sharing…
All the ugly symptoms of the stomach flu happened not long after sharing a beautiful meal with Ben at one of our favorite cafés, Goldberg’s, here in Newcastle. I emphasize sharing because we shared all our food and he did not get sick so it wasn’t their food that caused this. Moving on.
I started documenting Sunday in particular for WIAW because the menu of the day included chicken nachos, Argentinian pulled pork, and steak fajitas – a full on day of no shame Spanish eating.
One of the many things I love about Ben is that when he is debating between two menu items they are usually ones I’m deciding between as well; and he doesn’t mind ordering both and splitting down the middle – what a catch!
Lunch was beautiful and filling. We both agreed that lunch at Goldbergs should be an every week thing and nachos/pulled pork our every week order.
Following lunch I took a nap and when I woke up it was all downhill from there. That fajita dinner never stood a chance. Since then only powerade, crackers, baked chicken and lots of sleep. Hopeful to be back to normal for a trip to Sydney this weekend, and be eating cookies on Christmas.
What was your favorite meal this week?
Any favorite easy on the tummy recipes? I’m all ears (or eyes)!
