Starve a fever/feed a cold?
Is this even a real thing? (Don’t worry. I also asked Google this sixty seven times over the weekend.)(And I still don’t know.)
However, I know this. Being an adult is hard work…especially near tax season. Being a sick adult, with a sick husband and a sick dog? Game over. I definitely forfeit.
On Friday, when I felt the flu starting, I disinfected everything in my house and browned butter. I know…I should have just gone to bed. But browned butter blueberry muffins and a cup of tea felt like the best idea ever.
I added a heaping teaspoon of coconut oil, in its solid state to one mug of tea, and let it melt itself in. No stirring. Just patience. (Really. This is the recipe.)
Guess what? This flu came with zero sore throat.
Coincidence? Maybe. But I’m now obsessed with this tea trick/praying I don’t have to try it again this season. Because I have bigger plans for my kitchen (fine…weekend life) than browned butter muffins.
I seriously hope this sickness doesn’t come at you. But if it does, make this tea.
This is all.
Except…I’m finally on the other side of this flu. And there’s 60 degree walks, homemade granola and the rest of the ginger ale combined with honey bourbon involved. (Also…drink this.)
