Right back from my early teens I have never slept well on a Sunday night. It used to be because I would sleep in Sunday morning, but I don't do that anymore.
In my twenties and thirties, I either blamed having Asian food on a Sunday night or a roast. What do they have in common? Onions. Many Asian dishes have onions and a roast usually had a roasted onion. Onions don't agree with many people and I thought I was one of the them.
I had a schocker of a night last night. I would wake initially every half hour, bathed in sweat and unbearably hot. I would pull the bedcovers back, cool down and go back to sleep. This happened perhaps six times. About three I finally settled down and slept properly.
In the time I was awake, I tried to work out why. Ok, it is obviouslyan allergic reaction to something. We had a lovely roast lamb, cooked by R, but no onion, so that can't be it. Nothing else different during the day. How can I connect a meal of roast lamb to Asian food and it not be onion?
What was different about last night's roast? Well, there was a mishap with the mint sauce and it seemed foolish to eat mint sauce containing glass. So, I had extra, extra gravy.
I can only conclude that there is something in gravy, Gavox actually, that is also found in Asian, especially Chinese, food and my system does not like it all.
I will do some research. I am sure that there is plenty on the net about food allergies.
