Hot Tea and Chicken Broth on the Menu (and this is not an April Fools Joke!)

Nothing but hot tea and chicken broth has been on the menu at my house!

It's April 1, and if I wasn't incredibly sick with a terrible cough, body aches, a fever, and chest congestion, I'd be posting the Phase One Recipes Round-Up for March 2012 today.  I actually worked on it yesterday for a couple of hours before I gave up, called my gorgeous niece Alyson to bring me cough medicine, and then retired to the chair.  And last night I finally gave in and went to First Med, so hopefully I will soon be on the mend.  I'll be back as soon as I can!

  1. Feel better! I was woken up by kid 1 telling me kid 2 was by the toilet, waiting to vomit. And this was not an April Fools joke. I was planning on making a kitty litter cake today--now I am unsure.

  18. Hi Kalyn - throw a little cooked rice in that broth and cook it to death - you'll have "jook" - what Chinese people eat when they are sick. It is a miracle soup! Hope you get better soon!
