A Story

We had just moved to South Dakota and one day while shopping we stopped and got a couple of burritoes to go. I was starving and couldn't wait to unwrap my food.
At first I did smell something "off" but like I said, I was starving and took a huge mouthful. Oh my sweet Jesus! This ungodly taste filled my mouth, throat and even my nostrils! I couldn't breathe, I couldn't chew! I spit it back into the wrapper and just about died in a fit of coughing and gagging. It took about 30 minutes before I was able to breathe normally.
Finally hubby explained that the burrito wasn't tainted. No I was not going to die. It was the cilantro I was tasting.
Since that day I have found it in quite a few foods. Now I am on the lookout for that evil green weed and will do a complete check before taking a bite.
Seriously, how can anyone eat that crap??? Seriously???
