Well, as most of you know (either by relations to me, reading my previous post, or being psychic), I was horribly sick a few days ago. Since then, I have been weaning the pain and sickness off by sticking to a pretty bland, low-acid diet. I’m no doctor, but I’m pretty sure I aggravated the lining of my stomach that day, as it has been voicing it’s anger at me ever since.
Today was the first day I didn’t feel completely bonkers when I woke up, and so I decided that it was a good day to update y’all with a new blog post! I wanted to share with you my random Dallas find on that sick day.
I couldn’t keep anything down on Thursday. Not only was I sick to my stomach, but towards the middle of the afternoon I was also starving and dehydrated. When speaking with my mom on the phone, she suggested I get some sort of soup, and while that seemed like a great idea, I knew there was no way I would make it to my car, let alone a grocery store or restaurant. My kind, wonderful boyfriend suggested I get take out, and offered to pay for a place if I could find one.
After trial and error, I came across Grub Hub (GH) through an internet search and my prayers were answered! For only a $2 delivery fee, they were able to bring me egg-drop soup from The Wok in Dallas. Talk about delicious Chinese food for such a steal! While GH requires a minimum of $10 purchase from The Wok, the soup was only $1.50. I decided to order a second soup for my boyfriend, a Sprite soda for $1.00 in case my stomach needed more calming, a single order of an egg roll for $1.00, and a Cantonese meal plate for my boyfriend for all of his hard work at calming me during my sickness. He picked out the “Chicken Lo Mein” for just $7.95.
After tax, delivery fee, and tip, my total came out to just over $18, and I was able to purchase this all online from the comfort of my bed. The best part? Not only was I able to keep the soup down and finally get some nourishment, but the Chicken Lo Mein was so large, it fed both my boyfriend and I for the whole next day! We were so impressed, we both agreed I needed to share this find with my fellow Texas bloggers (although we were much too ravenous and began eating the food before we got the chance to grab a decent picture for blogging purposes, sorry!).
If any of y’all are ever in a situation where you can’t move from the house for whatever reason but need food, I strongly suggest Grub Hub and The Wok restaurant. It was that much-needed, small little light at the end of the tunnel from a crappy, sick day. It should help you feel better, too. Bon Appetit, Dallas!
