An International Incident


An international incident of my own making.   I never learn.  Once a year my church hosts an International Food Fair.  I look forward to it all year.  It was today and now I am suffering.   There were 11 countries represented.  You bought tickets and got to sample the most delicious foods. 

I had every intention of taking more pictures but you know how it is - eating, talking, socializing and you forget.  I'm such a bad blogger that way.  This was my first sample plate and the only photo I took.


I managed to hit 8 out of 11 countries before I quit.  The food was amazing and I was stuffed. But not long after I was home, my stomach started to rebel.  A little international war within.  The Bangladesh nuggets were fighting with the Korean pancakes.  And the Singapore noodles were putting up a fuss too.  Uugghhh, I layed on the sofa for most of the afternoon.   Next year I think I need to exercise a little more self restraint. Lol.    In my defense I was being prodded by my table mates who kept saying how good this or that was so naturally I had to try it.  


About the gingerbread Oreos I posted about yesterday......I should have tasted them before I posted. They are not Oreos best work.  Kind of disappointing because who doesn't love Oreos?

  3. I'm a bit behind in commenting so I went back to see about the Oreos...I've never seen them in the stores, but now I know to keep on going if they show up! Hope you're feeling better and have a good weekend!

  4. I've eaten many different dishes from different countries and some are rather heavy on the stomach but so yummy. No one can blame you, the food is there to try. They should make the samples in smaller portions like finger food.

    Sorry about your tummy upset, I bet you are not the only one. I hope that you are feeling better. At least you have the long weekend to recuperate.
    About the Oreos, sorry that they were disappointing. When they have a great cookie, they should stick with it. It's hard to make a choice now with so much to choose from.

    Happy long weekend.
    Hugs,
