Cooking Fool

I don't know what it is about fall, but I have been cooking like a maniac lately. Saturday night, I made a full on dinner for my parents, mostly from scratch (Crock Pot Roast Chicken, cheddar biscuits, roasted brussels sprouts, green beans, garlic mashed potatoes). The chicken, beans and brussels sprouts were scratch. The rest was pre-packaged. Still homey and delicious, though.

We had tons of leftovers from the chicken because it was a whole fryer chicken and we're only three people, so I made chicken and dumplings tonight. Added benefit was that we found rainbow carrots at the store, and they excited me so much that I bought them. It was all so tasty. I wish I had pictures.

Not gonna lie. Only reason I wanted to make it was because I think I'm getting sick, but I didn't want to have soup. Chicken and dumplings is way more comforting to me than soup. It was wonderful. That Rachael Ray knows what she's doing.

So, getting sick. Yeah. Yesterday was my church's "Trunk or Treat," and being on worship team, I was part of the entertainment. It was also freezing, and singing in cold weather is a recipe for a raw throat. I've been drinking tons of tea all day, and got my veggies in today (two whole cups of kale in my smoothie this morning!). I don't know. Ever feel run down and gross, and you know the problem? Eating junk food makes me break out, so I'm praying my skin clears up in the next day or two, and that the tea/water help, too.

I'm thisclose to taking a home remedy from my friend, Denise to knock out a cold. A whole garlic clove, vitamin C and echinacea. Done it before and it works. It's just highly GROSS. She says she has to follow her garlic with a Dr. Pepper chaser. I had to follow it with Diet Coke when I did it.

What are some other home remedies to ready ourselves for Winter?
