I was in the saddle for 5-6 hours yesterday just trying to burn some calories-which was pretty successful. I had eaten a normal breakfast but only had a banana and a pack of crackers during the ride. My wife was ready for supper when I got back so after a quick shower we were off to find some place to eat heartily.
There is a large mall near where we live where there are tons of restaurants. I should have known better but unfortunately everyone else had the same idea we did and lines were out the door just about everywhere. However, I spotted an Indian cuisine restaurant that did not look crowded and much to my wife's surprise I suggested we try it. She's loves the food but I'd never tried it.
I was so hungry I could eat anything.........or so I thought. We had a fish appetizer which was wonderful. It was pretty spicy but just to my liking. I asked the waitress if my entree was as spicy and she said "oh yeah, in fact you will think the entree was mild". I thought I could handle it as I generally like spicy stuff.
Boy was I wrong. Nothing I tried worked. I tried mixing it with tons of rice but that didn't help. I tried killing it with Naan (bread) but that didn't work. I suspect there were other dishes I would have enjoyed but my first experience was very memorable, in the wrong way.
I wound up picking up a cheeseburger on the way home and all was good again.
