The Road To Recovery
I'm finally feeling a little better today. Rarely, do I take medication of any kind but I resorted to slurping down some cough syrup yesterday so I could get some sleep. Big mistake. It was a pediatric formula and didn't have dosing guidelines for fat 32 year olds. So, I guesstimated. And then I got dizzy, loopy, sleepy, and still had to go to work. It stopped my hacking temporarily and my runny nose permanently though. Houston is batting down the hatches for our first official winter storm of the year. What did I do in preparation? What I always do. Cook. I made this split pea soup in the crockpot and added a side of more beer bread. The doomsday weather forecasters are running around inciting fear in people, but at La Casa De Infidel, we're chillin. (Our heater broke so I mean chillin quite literally) I restocked the pantry with assorted goodies. Things don't look nearly as bleak when you have Oreo cookie rations. Ahhhh, eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow we may die. At least we'll die happy and full!
