Originally, when I agreed to blog here, I agreed to blog once a month. But then, I had an idea: what if I blogged twice a month and one of those posts was more of a question or resource center? Of course, this idea will only work if you all participate!
Then, I watched Pres. Obama’s inauguration speech yesterday. I thought it was serendipitous and would be a great start to these question posts. I thought, hey, why don’t we all share great drink recipes to celebrate?
Today, as I sit to write the post, I am listening to my daughter snore and wheeze, her cold having gotten the better of her. I hate when she is sick– the feeling helpless and hopeless, the not being able to wave a wand and magically fix everything, the way it lasts so long (at least in my head). So, instead, I am asking everyone, in the comments section, to share a favorite recipe for sick kids. What do you give your little ones to make them better? How can I replicate it in my home?
Still nervous? Not sure what to share? Planning to just move on and read the next post? Here, I’ll get us started. When we get sick I force-feed the whole family Cinnamon-Ginger-Apple smoothies.
Clare’s Get-Well Cinnamon-Ginger-Apple Smoothies
1 cup apple juice
1-2 cm fresh ginger (peeled)
Dash of cinnamon
2 ice cubes
Put all ingredients in a blender. Blend. Serve with a silly straw. Repeat as needed. Get better.
