For nearly a week I've been battling this nasty bug. I've been fighting migraine headaches, fever, nausea, vomiting, chills, muscle pain, oh yeah...and I just found out I was pregnant. Add to that the scare of spotting (something that never happened in my first pregnancy). I have not done ANY cooking. Most of this last week was spent curled up in a ball and praying for this virus forged by Satan's right hand and blessed by the 4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse to either take me or be done already. I've been in and out of Doctors appointments, had a trip to the ER, and am now being watched for an ectopic pregnancy. Weeeee!
I am finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel and tonight I will be trying to do something in the kitchen other than just stand in front of the open freezer.
Let me leave you with a half-assed recipe for ginger tea.
