Updates, Revisions, and More

Enchilada Upchuck Update: I recently had some of the best cheese enchiladas that I have ever had. They were actually some of my sister's leftovers from the previous night. They were super cheesy. :) I had refried beans and rice with them. Unfortunately, I learned that super gooey cheesy enchiladas can come up as super big gooey globs of cheese that can be difficult to get out. Add to that rice that sticks to your tongue and you have to scrape it off and well, it just isn't very pleasant. I guess that means I vote yellow for super cheesy enchiladas with refried beans and rice. That being said, I went back to the restaurant and had them again only a few days later. Some things are good enough going down that they are worth the risk coming back up.

Granola Bar Update: I had another granola bar experience as well, once again with the sweet and salty peanut granola bars. I chewed them VERY well this time and I think that was worse. It meant scraping the nut fragments off of my tongue. Yuck. I won't change the rating though. I will probably even eat them again.

Breyer's Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream: Not bad coming up, but I was surprised that I didn't taste any of the mint, just chocolate. I am not a big fan of chocolate ice cream, but as far as puke flavors, it isn't bad at all.

Popcorn: Okay, this one should come as no surprise, but it was the first time I had been to a movie theater in 2 1/2 years, how could I not get buttery salty popcorn and eat way too much?

Catching Up

My brother has pointed out that I have not updated for awhile. He also added that baby names are not related to barfing. My husband had pointed that out too. Of course I am going to think about the baby while I am throwing up and I might as well try to come up with some names that are kinder than "the little parasite" or some of the other things I have thought. I do admit I have fallen behind, so here are some new reviews.

Sweet and Salty Peanut Granola Bars: Not the worse thing ever, but I think that in general nuts are something to be avoided.

Nachos: This rating can vary based on what you have on them and what kind of chip you use. Sharp pointy chips can make the rating go red very quickly, especially if you don't choose each bite a million times. There are some nice rounded tortilla chips and some smaller sizes that make the rating more of a blue. Adding anything besides cheese, sour cream, and salsa can drop the rating quite a bit too.

Chili Cheese and Onion Dogs: Suprisingly not as bad coming up as a regular hot dog with ketchup and mustard. Go figure. Still, caution should be used.

Cyrus O'Leary's Kahlua Cream Pie: I realize that the brand is regional, but probably most Kahlua cream pies would receive equally high marks. Yum! You can either eat half as much since you are enjoying it twice, or you can eat twice as much since you lose half of it. Decisions, decisions...

Arby's Roast Beef Sandwich with a TON of Arby's sauce: I think it is impossible to have too much sauce on an Arby's sandwich. I love the sauce so much that I hate it when the bun or meat interferes with the taste of the sauce. When it came back up, I tasted bun and meat. Is it possible that I didn't use enough sauce?

Ground Beef Enchiladas: Do yourself a favor and go for something other than the ground beef. Just does not come up very pretty.

Flavored Carbonated Water: I have tried the brands from Safeway, Albertson's, and Target. All have been most favorable coming up. Much better than plain water, especially on a mostly empty stomach. It helps mask the stomach bile quite well.

Well, that's it for now. I am getting hungry. I think I better have a pre-eating puke though because I am about to blow. I had wheat toast for breakfast and I am guessing it is going to be a blue.
