Sick Days

DSC00083

We don’t usually get the flu vaccine.  But this year we did.  And it’s been our worst winter ever for viruses.  After almost a month of straight misery, we are finally all on the mend.  It seems many of our friends and family have been been hit by the nasty bugs lately, so I thought I’d share some of my favorite recipes for those miserable days.

Honey Water: Place a couple spoons of honey in a teacup (with a sprinkle of cinnamon if you like).  Pour boiling water into coup and stir to dissolve honey.
Sometimes I add a fresh squeeze of lemon as well.

Jello Water: I know this might sound strange, but I grew up having this when I was a kid.  My mom always made it for us when we were sick, and it always seemed to help!  I still have it sometimes when I’m sick!
Prepare Jello (for some reason we always made the red varieties, like strawberry or raspberry, but any should be fine) by adding boiling water, but add about double the amount of water, and drink while warm.
(You can even just put a spoon of dry jello mix in a cup and pour boiling water over it).

Celery Soup– I make this all the time when we’re sick, and it just seems to help so much.

Chicken and Dumplings

Chicken Noodle Soup
