The past couple of days have been jam packed at work. So many changes and great growth within the team. Today was my supervisor’s last day in office, so our director treated us to lunch at Adair Kitchen.
I’ve always been curious about Chicken & Waffles, so I decided to have a stab at it. Plus it’s one of their most popular dishes.
We grabbed a table while we waited and I was facing the widow looking out at the entrance. Something about this place makes me feel at ease, and I’ve only been there twice!
My Chicken & Waffle came and woh, was it intense. I wasn’t sure how to handle it, or myself for that matter. Knife and fork in hand, I cut into the chicken and cut a small portion of the waffle and raised my fork up to my mouth for what would be my very first bite, my very first bite(OH MY GOD).
I suddenly found myself continue. All while I was eating, I looked around at my co-workers’ plates and how their food was much healthier than mine and how much color and life their plates had(does that ever happen to you?) I continued to eat, but kept finding myself eating the chicken and waffle separately- something about eating them together reminded me of a chicken sandwich. I somehow wanted to appreciate them both for their uniqueness.
Once I was halfway, I had to call it quits. I threw in the towel. What, who does that? Who orders Chicken & Waffles and doesn’t finish? But seriously, it’s so filling. I decided to be honest with myself- after all, if something went wrong I would have hell to pay #sensitivestomachproblems. After maybe about 30 minutes to an hour, I no longer felt full. Magical, if I make it to tomorrow in one piece – I will raise a glass or take off my hat to this Adair recipe.
Stay tuned. . .
Update: Wednesday, June 04, 2014
I drank a small cup of milk last night while I ate the last bit of the chicken and had a little tuna after work. I didn’t want to eat a full meal because I knew it would be hard on my tummy if I did. It might sound odd(usually does to most people), but milk settles my stomach- Its some scientific neutralizing stuff(look it up!)
Although, I went to sleep a little scared because my tummy was making all sorts of sounds; I was able to fall asleep and stay asleep until the early morning. I slept well, woke up well rested.
So as promised,
