No I didn't punch him ;)

Sexy isn't he? LOL! That would be my husband and that would be his GIANT lip after having an allergic reaction at Chili's. We went to Chili's last week, Chris had a burger that came with onion strings. Turned out the onion strings had been cooked in the same deep fryer as fish products. For those of you who know Chris know that he has serious nut and fish allergies. Thankfully this time around it was nothing more than a swollen lip.

His burger was taken off our bill. Once we got home though and I thought more about it I was a little concerned at the "they must have been cooked in the same fryer as fish" statement. The outcome could have been much worse. If not for Chris, then maybe for someone else. I decided to send an email through Chili's website expressing my concern.

Today someone from Chili's regional office here in MA called me. We had a great conversation and he thanked me over and over for sending the email and bringing to his attention what had happened. Clearly it should not have happened. He also said he would be sending us some gift certificates in the mail tomorrow. Can't complain about that. Chris is still alive and kicking AND we get free food:)

CHIPS AND SALSA FOR EVEY!!! HOLLA!!

Wow. That is intense. But it sounds like it was not too severe, and you got some free food out of it... so YAY! But I hope Chris is OK!!

Unbelievable! And gift cert's to boot! I think I need to have Andrea punch me, then go to Chili's, order that burger and file a complaint!

Wow. That is really scary. I am so glad it didn't get any worse.

And good for you for letting the corporate office know what happened.

The more I thought about it, Chili's should've immediately said, "You guys should just get going to get his medication! Don't worry about your meal!" and comped the whole thing right then and there! Benadryl to the rescue!! Be careful, son :-)

Holy Crap! I guess Chris is now really not going to want to go to Chilis. Maybe that will work out for me because I LOVE their chips and salsa! Tell Chris I hope he is feeling better!

looks like Chris got a little crazy with the Cologen. Not a good look for guys.
Hope you feel better soon...

I know it is not good to laugh but his lip looks pretty funny. Glad Chris is okay but just make sure that when you go there again you don't order something that is not deep fried.:)

Jeez, that's insanity!

Angelina Jolie, eat your heart out. The top one looks kinda funny. The bottom picture looks scary (and painful?) Glad to hear he's ok. Fark!

Stay away from Chili's deep fried stuff. It's evil. No bloomin' onions!
