My parents noticed before I finished but I'd already eaten two of them. Was sick for a long long time, put the fear of god into me about eating anything for a long long time. Actually took me until I was about 20 to not panic about eating something new and gave me a phobia of throwing up. Over that now, obviously I hate spewing like everyone else but there's no panic attatched anymore.
I've been watching Australia Master Chef Season 3 lately (anyone spoils who wins it for me = I will turkey slap you) and it's gotten me pretty inspired to cook more often. There's like 70 odd episodes! It's crazy. I'm around 40 or so in, it's awesome.
Yeah I nearly always overcook chicken as well due to fear haha.
If the juices run clear, you're OK. That said, I cut every piece of meat I get to make sure that it's done. I don't like medium rare anything.
Finishing a bottle of wine and hoping I get paid this Friday.
