huuunggggkk- ahem- hhhuuuuuwwhach

That is me dry heaving.

Over what you might ask?
My dinner.
The one I made.
With love for my dear sweet Tony.
One of his favorites, homemade chili over baked (not microwaved) salt crusted potatoes topped with sharp cheddar cheese. I can hear the unmistakable collective mmmmmmmmmm.
When I opened my potato all fancy like down the middle and popped the ends to create a nest of potato-y goodness for the toppings I found this...
and no I don't know for sure what it is.
Maybe a fungus.
Maybe a genetic abnormality, a chimera of sorts.
It looked like a slug.
Inside my potato.
With no visible entry points.
But I am a trooper.
I lopped off a chunk of Tony's and a chunk of Nadia's and I was going to soldier on.
Then I helped Aidan open his potato...

Inside we found what appeared to be a well cooked shelled clam.


Did you know that kids' eat for $0.99 at Applebees on Wednesdays?

Did you also know that a grilled portabella mushroom looks remarkably like a slug?

Both of those pictures are straight up nasty! I'd have been hitting Applebee's too. Luckily it was Wednesday. And I've had the portabella's there...never again. Better luck next time!
