Chicken & Artichokes
Do you know that feeling - when you 100% and totally over-indulge? When you eat and eat, and drink and drink? When you wake up and your stomach just aches from all that it has had to endure? Good/bad/ugly? I call it "gut rot" ... and it calls for drastic measures.
An extra long weekend in Orlando will take it's toll: Wednesday started at noon with dirty martinis and buffalo chicken sliders. It moved into a margharita flat bread, lemon basil martini, and a plethora of flavors of wines. (Thursday started with a hangover, and continued with a tea, 2 Pepsis, and an embarassing attempt to eat a prosciutto sandwich).
Skip ahead to Thursday night. The dinner that Eleven puts on is out of this world. A carving station with beef, a pasta station with both marinara, and chicken and penne alfredo (which was seriously, out of this world). Cesar salad, bread sticks. The list goes on. I think I ate every item (and not necessarily a "taste"). Plus 4 mini dirty martinis, and a Bud Lite at the after party. (I was then in bed at 11:30 to make up for the night before).
I think you get the picture... but then you add in sushi (the Reunion's hotel lobby bar has THE best sushi you could have in your lifetime), a bevy of beverages, a double Whopper at 2:00 am, etc. etc. etc., needlesstosay you end up with "gut rot" - Cue: DETOX.
