What's On Your Table - Tuesday.

Little pretties from my garden to brighten my Tuesday table.

Good morning to all my lovely friends. I have missed keeping in touch with you all these last few days, I feel very much quarantined from the planet at the moment.

Thank you for all your lovely comments and thoughts for me and my house of sick. I have finally acknowledged defeat, and have a Dr's appointment this morning. I don't want drugs, I know it's viral and drugs won't work, however, today is day 5 and that's 4.5 days too many. I just need my left ear, left nostril, and left sinus removed and I reckon I will be just fine thank you. While I am there he may as well take my left eye too, just in case. I figure the sooner these are removed, the less chance of infection leaking to the right side will occur.

Moving right along now, let's forget about the *ugg* for a moment, I found a lovely recipe that I would like to share with you all. It's mega super easy and ultra mega super yum, as voted by all of the family, which is a rarity. Chicken & Ginger Broth Luckily I doubled the recipe, as I thought it would do us two nights to save me cooking tonight. lol, Well ummmm, it was that good that we went back for seconds and thirds. There is now only enough left for one large serve or two smaller serves for tonight. Normally I prefer to cook from scratch, however, this is a great meal to cook when feeling *ugg*. Also, where it says discard the ginger, *ahem* I don't think so, I put the ginger in my sieve and ran it under cold water to rinse. It is now in a container in the fridge ready for my ginger and lemon tea for today. *Yikes* discard ginger - how dare!!

To those of you feeling *ugg* perhaps print out this recipe and place it where your family can see it and make it for you. It's so easy to make, and there is very little clean up involved for them.

So tell me, what is on your table this Tuesday? I would love to know.

Glad you are seeing the doc and hope all goes well. Thanks for the recipe-it looks great. Make lots of soups here, freeze them in individual portions and pop them in the microwave for a quick meal with a salad or bread.

Hi Clara, Alice and Mrs Twins, thank you for your get well wishes. I have ear infection, so am now on drugs to clear that up, hopefully by Saturday the sun won't seem so bright. We love this soup Clara, its a keeper at our place, let me know if you like it. I love sharing a good recipe when I find it. Thanks Alice, I have been using my crystals too, the poor things, I cleanse them each day, cause I don't want them getting sick like me. They must feel they have a huge job to do.
Mrs Twins, I so hope you manage to keep away from this bug at your place. I have to say, I have not been knocked down like this for so long before. My hubbie (you know, being a man and all) has also never been so sick for so long, it's really knocked him about as well.
Thank you for your loving thoughts, it makes me feel so much better just knowing you are in my little world. xx
