Oh boy! Did you get hit by that crazy snow storm? Things here in Washington are chilly, and wet, but I will not complain because at least I can get around! We even had a bonfire Saturday night. Had a few friends over, some good food, and lots of laughs.
Then Sunday came around, and the fun stopped.
You see, last Friday I watched the G-baby, like I do every Friday, but she was sick. I mean like sick sick, coughing, sneezing, boogy face . The poor little thing was so miserable. She would start to play, and have a smile on her face, then all of a sudden start crying. I kept telling her that I wished I knew what she was feeling so I could try to make it all better.
You know when they say "be careful what you wish for because it might come true"?
Sunday I woke up with a wicked sore throat, sneezing, coughing, and my right ear was itching like crazy. That always tells me that I have an ear infection coming on, and sure enough I ended up in the ER that night with a fever and my right ear feeling like someone was stabbing me with a chopstick!
I finally ended up home and in bed by 1 AM soooooooo tired
The next day (or rather later that morning), when we got up, Kevin was coughing and sneezing, and sounded horrible, and today he is home and down for the count right along with me.
So needless to say, my house is tons of fun right now......NOT!!
This morning I woke up craving something a little sweet, and was uber happy that I had a jar of this chutney in my fridge.
You see, ever since I made this the first time, I have gotten hooked on it and want it on just about everything! It is muy delicioso on pork and chicken, but my fave way to eat it is on bread or toast with goat cheese, or cream cheese! I even use it in place of jelly on my PB&J's now. So I guess that makes them PB&C's, but whatever they are, the are ding dang tasty. Even with a sore throat they call my name.
What? Did you hear that? It is coming from my kitchen.
Pardon me while I go sneezing into my kitchen to make another PB&C.
