Love Hurts

I love, love, love spicy food! The spicier the better! However, recently I have discovered that I'm not as invincible as I once thought I was! Our Korean students wanted a Korean meal, so we had a soup similar to Japanese miso soup, two meat dishes with gochujang- the hot pepper sauce, rice, lettuce, and lots of Korean side dishes (two types of kimchi, sliced jalapeno peppers, etc). Hubby and the boys were eating those peppers straight...just popped them in their mouths. I had one! One!! Oh, and that just about did me in! I was sweating, I had tears streaming from my eyes, and my nose was running! I simply cannot do this to myself any longer. The only problem is that everything tastes sooooooo good!!

Dad always said to be careful of spicy food. It burns you twice (if you know what I mean).
These are not my photos. I nabbed them off of Google Images :( Our meal did look a lot similar to the pics though!

Have you heard of "The Source"? Apparently it was the molasses of hottest spice in the world... yes, I said molasses - apparently it is so hot that you need to take it under supervision. I saw it on FoodNetwork one day and they had paramedics on call in this food show and ask volunteers to taste it.

Needless to say, there were a lot of red-faced men afterwards. Oh, and tears too.

Only two blog comments? LOL! I have come to the conclusion that my blog readers prefer reading about poo and crazy brides! :)

I'm English, the closest to spicy I'll get is my chicken korma and delicious Indian curries. Or Japanese wasabi, if that qualifies as spicy!

Miss Moneypenny! So glad you have returned! Quit straying like you do! Keep visiting and keep posting! We (or I in particular!) miss your lovely, warm presence! Oh, don't worry! I'm not a complete tosser!

Dina, I really miss going for Korean food with you! I really, really miss the conversations and the yummy food! When I come to Toronto, we're going to have to decide between Indian, Thai and Korean!!! Decisions, decisions! :)
