nasty sore throat

Sore throat. Beyond sore. Painful to swallow. I can barely talk this morning. Fantastic way to start the day... gonna have to figure out a creative method for managing conversation class. Luckily, it's quiz day, so I won't have to say too much.

Don't make me come over there. Hot tea, honey, lemon, rest. Be compliant, dammit.

Homemade ginger tea works here: a 1-2 inch chunk of ginger cut into thin disks, put in a pot of 1-2 cups of water, a squirt of honey and juice of 1 lemon, boil away until reduced by half. Sip while hot if you can.

I swear by that spicy Thai styled seafood soup, tom yum goong (recipe on my blog somewhere). Spicy, tangy... and all the aromatics (lemongrass, lime, galangal, chile) actually have medicinal properties.
