Since Thursday I've been getting that scratchy feeling in my throat like I'm about to get sick and I have been combating it with everything I got!
I've has PLENTY of greens and citrus. I've even picked up some horrible tasting Airborne. The sickness has not quite gone away yet thus today I'm pulling out the BIG GUNS.


I was fortunate enough to receive Nava Atlas' new book a couple of weeks ago (Thank you Nava!). As I customarily do, I've been reading it- not using it just yet. Today is the day that I will start to cook! Not sure which recipe I fancy but that'll be the surprise of the next post :)

Wish me luck on this cooking adventure!


PS- I just want to point out that I don't just eat soup when I'm sick. I happen to crave it like a mad woman then though:)

Oh, I hope you feel better soon! Soup will feel excellent on your throat--I can't stay away from it when I'm sick! Take care of yourself!

Hey Teddy!

I'm sorry you're sick - I think all the bloggers have got the croup - me included. I actually had to go to the doctor and get the antibiotics - eck.

I received Nava's books as well! I've got plans to cook the curried red lentil soup tomorrow. I want something spicy and it calls for sweet potatoes - my favorite. I'm excited to see what you choose.

Again - I hope you get better. Happy cooking!

i just received my copy 2 days ago! the first recipe I tried was the baked onion soup. it was good but i felt the need to alter it quite a bit. i love the set-up of the book (by season) and the section of quick breads at the back. fabulous! can't wait to see what you try!

I hope you are feeling better. Garlic and Ginger are also excellent and great immune boosters.
