What is with this year and all the sickies? It’s just terrible, everyone around is sick and last week, it hit home. The little man got sick and a few days later, I got sick. It’s been over a week, the little man and I am barely starting to get better. I’ve been taking lots and lots of medicine to keep myself running through the day and drinking lots of tea. I always have a cup of hot tea in my hand when I am sick.
Occasionally, I have Hot Toddies at night. The first time I heard about Hot Toddy was on the Home Improvement show. Anyone knows what I’m talking about? Remember how much better it made Jill feel? (hehe) They are that good, especially before nap time or bed time. When you are like me, and your life can not stop while you are sick, you need to make to Hot Toddies day time friendly. I have a toddler to run after and loads of school work that doesn’t go away, no matter what. So, I made my own version of Hot Toddy: Mock Citrus Hot Toddy! It is not only delicious, it is cold friendly. Loaded with Vitamin C, honey, ginseng and ginger.
1 bottle of Lipton Diet Green Tea Honey Ginseng
2 slices of orange
2 slices of lemon
1 tsp fresh grated ginger
~Heat up the tea in a pot. Add the citrus slices and ginger.
~Bring to a gentle boil and take off heat.
~Let the tea steep for a few minutes. Pour the tea into the cups through a strainer.
I’ve been having these teas for a week and they are so good! It is also very soothing to a sore throat and stuffy nose. It really helps when I am trying to stay up to read the 100th chapter of the week. I can’t wait for the school to be over and the summer to begin! Not because I love summer, but because I will have time for fun again!
