One of my favorite spice blends is Caribbean Jerk...at least it was until the other night.
After two bites my mouth was burning.
Half way through the meal my eyes were watering.
By the last bite my cheeks were flushed and my mouth was on fire.
At first I thought it was because they make their Caribbean Jerk spices hotter than normal but The Fiancee took a bite and didn't think it was hot as I did.
Then I thought the reason it burned my mouth was because I am getting older and strange things happen when you are getting older.
Some times your knees creak when you get up, and your hair isn't as thick as it use to be and for me I guess I can't eat spicy foods like I did when I was younger.
I have two options; I can either stock up on cottage cheese or I can just suffer the side effects and eat spicy foods.
I love spicy foods and I hate cottage cheese....spicy foods it is.
