Thanks to Laura at orgjunkie.com for hosting menu plan monday.
We tried several new recipes last week. Some of them were OK...one of them was just awful. These soft pretzels, which you see in the 'henhouse bowl' were horrid.
I think there must be a misprint in the instructions for the water bath where they were simmered, because they actually changed to a pale orange in that water bath and they were horribly bitter. Yick.
I'm feeling less adventurous in the meal plan department this week, and I'm sticking with tried and true favorites. Also, Little Bit and I have a sinus infection. I'm going to keep it easy.
When we get any sort of upper respiratory thing with a cough, I make 'hot lemonade'. It's just a mug of hot water, some lemon juice and honey. Simple and very soothing. It clears out a lot of the congestion and eases the cough. I think hot lemonade will be our beverage of choice the next few days, along with plenty of water.
