Thanksgiving is traditional at our house. We get a little more wild with the menu at Christmas and New Year :) I insist on a fried turkey each year - the only way I can eat it. My husband and I have agreed to mashed potatoes for Thanksgiving and twice baked potatoes for Christmas. The green bean casserole is for him alone. We have added this strawberry fluff salad recently and reserve Grandmother's fruit salad for Christmas. Nobody in my family likes pumpkin pie, so we stick with apple. I'd like cherry, but I'd have to eat the whole thing by myself.
Do you do a traditional Thanksgiving? Do you have any recipes to share? If you'd like any of ours, shoot me a comment!
It’s cold and flu season here. Every time I hear that one of my friends has the flu (and I realize I probably seen them during the incubation period), I just cringe. But I do enjoy all of the things I get to do to try and avoid catching germs.
My favorite is Dun dun dun……Hot liquid. My favorite at the moment is Yogi Sweet Tangerine. It supports elevated mood and energy levels. No wonder I’m so positive all the time, lol!!!
I rely on my Neti Pot to keep the germs at bay during our dry Montana winters. The instruction that came with it said to order the saline solution from them, but I don’t. I at ¼ tsp of salt with ¼ tsp of baking soda and feel that this works every bit as good as the packets that came with it.
I once made garlic soup to beat a winter cold. It was soooo gross. I would much rather take a garlic supplement. Echinacea is also a good supplement to combat germs, or you can drink tea. I love the smell of Echinacea tea!!
My least favorite, but I feel it really works is Oregano Oil. Two drops under the tongue during flu season. It tastes so awful, you might not be able to eat all day, either. Added bonus, lol!!
