Grilled cheese sammich (fried in bacon grease of course) with sriracha, and chili miso soup with sriracha too. Gotta have a cold Dr. pepper with the sore throat too...


Talkin to Rusty last night trying to figure out how/if I could make it down, I am sure my voice sounded about like a dying goose. :grin

    Good start to recovery, keep going...finish the sauce and 5 bowls and 5 cheese sandwitches and the lame cold will be gone. Dead goose sounds mean take 10 hot showers or swim/hotub.

    Repeat if nessary.

    Hot shower and salt water gargle helped the throat/voice this morning.

    That grilled cheese looks like it was heated with butter.

    Where did you get the miso?

    I had a breakfast burrito (cheeze, egg white, siracha). .

    Tall collins glass and a teaspoon.

    Pour a stiff shot of whiskey into the glass. At least two fingers worth.
    Put in a teaspoon of sugar, or honey if you prefer. Stir until well mixed into the whiskey.
    Add in a half dozen cloves.
    Put the spoon in the glass, resting it on the side.
    Pour in boiling water to fill the glass to two thirds.
    Stir it all together.
    Sniff the drink until cool enogh to drink.

    Add less water for a stronger drink.
    Maybe if we tell people that the brain is an App, they will start using it.

    I do hot jasmine tea with bourbon/lemon/honey.

    Boil water in pot and add jasmine leaves. Seep until dark in colour. Pour into mug 3/4 way, add a tablespoon of honey, a good squirt of lemon, and top off with bourbon. Breathe in vapors through nostril until tea is warm. Drank before it cools. Always have 2, but sometimes a third is required.

    If the nose won't stop running, I take water hot to the touch from the tap and fill up a mug halfway, add enough salt until it tastes like the ocean, maybe a bit saltier. Then dip a paper towel in it and while head is over sink, squeeze the paper towel and snort it up the nostril until it passes through to the throat, spitting excess out. Repeat with other nostril. Gargle with remaining salt water.
