queenb - You are right. It used to be the mayo that spoiled because it was usually homemade and not necessarily correctly done. The processed, preservative-laden, acidic store-bought mayo is less likely to be the culprit. Now, the potatoes are more likely to be the bacterial breeding-ground, especially if they are not properly cooled and stored, because of their moisture content and pH.
A boiled potato in the fridge doesn't sound to me like the sort of thing that would cause food poisoning. Maybe if it were left out and rolled in a raw chicken breast or something..Originally Posted by Amy Lee;2782571;
That said, and at full risk of being very redundant, from the symptoms you've described, it doesn't sound like your body was trying to PURGE any particular item, rather it sounds like it was reacting to something you ate.
Allergic reactions aren't necessarily the first thing you think of-- when I had mine, the only reason I suspected it was because I'd had an allergy shot the day before. My doctor wasn't even positive it was a reaction, but the stakes are sufficiently high so that she treated it as such, and retrospectively judging by the way I bounced back so quickly from the treatment, we believe it was an allergic reaction.
What's that saying? An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure?
I'm with you advance-preppers. If not for advance preparation, there would be nights where I wouldn't eat until 10 pm.
My money's on allergic reaction -- I've had allergic reactions with similar symptoms. The allergen could be an ingredient, a result of a combination of one or more ingredients (my allergist says that food allergies are tricky this way), or perhaps a tiny bit of early mold growth.

Snow day here. As Vicky RHOOC would say: WOO-HOO!
Let's see, there is laundry to do, grocerys to buy, meals to cook, and a house to clean. And a whole free day to do it in! Isn't it funny what makes moms happy?
DD just got over the flu. We are having a epidemic here in our town. Fever-hers got almost to 103. Cough, dizziness,muscle aches, sore throat. She didn't even get out of bed for almost 2 days. Didn't even get on the phone or facebook either! I know that girly was sick. She is almost back to normal with a boatload of school work to do.
I very much believe in rescuing animals, not buying them.

I posted for the first time yesterday in a RHOOC thread just to come back to post again and see it's no longer possible. A girl can get a real complex.
Is this common to not be able to post in threads once the show is no longer on tv?
It's not you, toodles. That forum had some issues and it was decided to close it for now. A time out, if you will.Originally Posted by toodles;2784247;
It was me. I let the dogs out.
I appreciate your response.
I'm sure I'll find many more threads to post to. It's a little overwhelming with so many though.
I have beef stew in the crock pot for tomorrow night. I'll cook it today when I have time, then let those flavors mix in the fridge until tomorrow, then reheat it.Originally Posted by Missyboxers;2783983;
