Cold Tur…erm Chicken

’ve decided that I am giving up chicken. And it kind of sucks.  I was just getting to the point where I was eating chicken on a regular basis and was actually using it as my main source of meat.  But then the evil demon salmonella struck. Again. While it didn’t strike me quite as violently as the last time (thank goodness) it made a rather more extended stay this time around.  I got sick on Tuesday and it’s just in the last 24 hours or so that I’ve felt more or less normal, if not tired. And I have no energy but that’s to be expected as I’ve been living off of white bread, bananas, and club soda.So I’m giving up chicken. Ever since I got sick with it the first time I’ve had problems with it. I figure I’m not going to tempt fate.  Am I giving up chicken forever? Probably not. But the last time I gave up chicken I gave it up for over a year and it was another 5 or 6 years before I ate chicken on a regular basis.

This means that I need another game plan for meals. A lot of the time lately it’s been grab a chicken breast and throw some sauce on it and call it a meal.  I might even have to *gasp* start planning my meals.  At least I know I can make the yummy enchilada casserole with fake chicken strips like Denise did.

I don’t think I’ll be eating chili-lime popcorn any time soon, if ever. I had after my chicken dinner and um…let’s just say I never want to see it again.
