Very icy out today. I need to go do chores and get ready for my day. Trying to decide if I am going to order a basket. I need to call vizio too about our tv that keeps loading in the middle of programs.
I do...do you think it'd work as well with ground ginger. I dont have any fresh in at the moment. Heiner might be able to get me some later though.

Take care outside on the ice.

Re: Basically it's Monday

Morning mamacitas. Snow day today, dense fog, all the snow is turning to slush and ice. Very scary out there.

Cecelia, I am sorry for your loss. I will pray for your family.

Janine, we use honey and ground ginger here for sore throats and cough and it works fine. Fresh would probably be better, but it still works.

Last night I was Grumpy Old Man about Monopoly Jr and said in my day, we played the REAL monopoly as children, were cutthroat and and brutal, and we liked it, dagnabit! None of this "Go to Lunch" and you have to buy a property you land on and automatically get a ticketbooth nonsense. So of course, yes, I set myself up. They now all want to learn the real version. And I said sure, some day when we have lots of time I will teach you because it is a long game to begin with and longer with people learning. And today is a snow day...

I think fresh would be more potent, but as long as it is real ginger and not powdered ginger tasting stuff it should be good. I also have a jar in my fridge with thinly sliced lemons layered with raw honey that I scoop honey/liquid out of and poor hot water on. That really helps my throat. I put ginger in it too I am in from chores, waiting to see if BBFC can tempt me today. I know they are offering marmalade oranges and I am not a fan, so I can skip that. If all I want is a basket and bread I will have my mom order bread and skip the rest.

Re: Basically it's Monday

Heiner's gone shopping and left me with the kids...which isn't so bad but Fynn's really grumpy tonight.

He's picking my up this chair too. So I have somewhere to sit. The sofa is no good for my back and the chair I have at my desk is broken. So either I'm lying down or trying balance on the edge of the chair and not hurt myself more.

He forgot my sick-note though which is a PITA but not the end of the world.

My chopping board is nice and high so I could make the bread. I made 3 baguettes (one plain, one chocolate from the chocolate tasting they went to on Sunday, and one roasted hazelnut), and a large loaf with chocolate chips and roasted hazelnuts.

I hope they turn out ok.

I made up a jar of Lemon-Ginger-Honey back when you posted that link.

Re: Basically it's Monday

It's annoying that I need a new chair at all. I mean this one is only really 6 weeks old...but it's past the time of being able to send it back.

No chair today after all. The local shop doesn't have it.

Aaaannnddd now we have flood watch. It's only going to rain 1-2 inches, but the 6 inches of snow is also going to melt and the ground is still frozen. Greeeeeeeeaaaaaat. Did I mention the fog is as thick as pea soup out there? Ugh.
