Happy spring. I'm sick.

I'm sick, kids. I have some sort of bronchial-something-or-other. I'm only on day 2 of the antibiotics, so hopefully I'll be back to normal by the weekend. I sure hope so because A.) I can't talk. Me. Unable to speak. TORTURE. And B.) it is absolutely GORGEOUS here in Nashville and the worst is being sick on a beautiful Spring day. I was so pissed today. Everyone had their tops down and sunglasses on, lookin' all Malibu Barbie. And here I am, wool scarf around my neck.... shivering....with Halls menthol lyptus breath. UGH squared.
Anyway, dinner tonight was my magical & famous un-chicken noodle soup. I was gonna post the recipe with a pic of the deliciousness, but I'm sick and lazy. Lo siento. I'll give you the Cliff's Notes version. Basically, you'll need lots of garlic (it's a natural antibiotic), chili peppers (capsicum), fresh ginger (warms tummy and lungs) black pepper & cinnamon (makes ya sweat the toxins out), onions (antiviral chemicals), and aniseed (it's a natural expectorant for getting rid of gross phlegm.) I'll post my recipe on my food site soon, but I use soy 'chicken' and tons of fresh kale also. I'm telling you - it works. And there's something so special about sitting on the couch with a warm bowl of homemade goodness when you're feeling crap-tastic. Sometimes my little dude will do a fake cough and say "I need some of that soup". Scammer!
Hope ya'll are enjoying Spring and remembering to stop and smell every newborn flower you see. For real.

love & xo's.

p.s Is this not THE quintessential spring song? LOVE him. In my top 20 fav songs of all time. (Plus I love the irony of watch-list-Yusuf singing a Christian hymn. teehee)
