Serves Me Right

Last night I was too lazy to cook a meal from scratch so I  cheated...again.

There was some leftover chicken from Sunday's roast which I put in the pot with a pack of rice and mixed veg from the freezer and added a jar of Thai green curry paste.

It tasted fine but at 2 a.m. I awoke suddenly with a very painful attack of heartburn, I suspect from the curry paste.

That'll teach me not to cheat.

  1. A meal like that is unlikely to earn you your own TV cooking show. Did Lord Peregrine have heartburn too? I wonder what theme music you would pick for your cooking show?

    1. My TV show would be called "Just Bung It In The Pot". I understand that there is a song called "Toxic" by a Miss Spears that would seem to be an appropriate choice for a theme tune.
      Thankfully, Lord P has a cast iron stomach so usually suffers no ill effects from my offerings.

  2. I would have some more just to confirm... not really!

  3. I would suggest washing it all down with a few pints of beer. Always works for me. My friend went to the doctor and he said: " Your supposed to have eleven pints a week. Not every night."šŸ˜Š

  4. Heartburn in a scourge, I get it all the time and a bottle of Gaviscone is always on hand.

    1. I suffer occasionally but I should have learned by now to avoid the curries šŸ›

  5. I sympathise. I have had reflux for some time following a stomach tumour op 5 years ago. I was recently diagnosed with a sliding hiatus hernia. I find it I take something like Peptac or Gaviscon before bedtime it certainly helps particularly if I know I have eaten something a bit spicy.

    1. Oh dear. An occasional attack seems bad enough to me. Your situation sounds tough x

  7. That doesn't sound like cheating to me, just good home economy! I agree with ADDY above, if I feel that I've either over-eaten, or had something too rich, I have an Antacid pill before bed. It always does the job, but also makes me thirsty during the night.

  8. That sounds like good wholesome fast food to me but then I also have a cast iron stomach. I hope you're better this morning.

    1. Thank you Graham. I was fine by the morning, just very tired after a sleepless night.

  9. I too get heartburn sometimes but know what triggers it and try to avoid those things, eat them again and the heartburn is back !!!! I did read somewhere that we shouldn’t use antacids as our stomach needs acid and over use of them makes for a viscous circle ! It’s always around 2.00 am as well ! I chew a liquorice tablet which helps. XXXX

  12. Just try half a jar of green curry paste next time, and some coconut milk or something. Tigger says you must NEVER waste leftover roast chicken....
