wasabi + the flu = nasal discomfort.

I pride myself in my health, it is rare that I get sick. Sure enough, I have some bug. I don't know if it was something I ate or what, but I can't keep anything down. It's not the achiness all over my body, or the uncertainty that I'm going to poop my pants or throw up before reaching the bathroom that bothers me. No, none of those things are causing disease into my day. What gets me the most is that I made a really spicy wasabi-teriyaki stir fry last night and now my nose is paying for it after I heaved most of it up. Wasabi and the flu do not go together.

After class this morning, I came home and crashed. I think Baker is diggin' me as a napping companion. As you all know, he is a semi-pro napper and one of the biggest joys in my life. I'm moving a little too slow and feel too weak to go mix ink for m print making class. I hate missing class, especially when I am sick. I think I'm doing the right thing. Last fall, I saw so many students come to class ill and it would drive me crazy. Sometimes it's hard for me to take my own advice and rest.

Rule #1 to a good nap:
Take up the wholeee couch. Learning from the best!

Nothing sounds good to me. Eating, drinking water, moving - tell it all to wait 'cause I'm not doing any of it! I am forcing myself to sip water, but kind of wish I had an IV to hook myself up to. Baker's Daddy told me he'd pick me up some popsicles on his way home from work. What a sweetie, eh?

I wish I had a new recipe to post or food to talk about rather than my fever and chills. Well, I'll leave you with a lil' recipe. A recipe to cure any ailment- compassion and a lil' love. Take care and enjoy your day!


  1. I am sending you cheer from Minneapolis! Feel better, bug! :)

  2. I'm thinking healthy thoughts your way.

  3. A good excuse to watch some old movies? Being sick never seems like such a big deal until you are sick and then it is the worst thing ever! Hope you're better tomorrow.

  4. Awh, thanks! I slept pretty much all day and am feeling a lot better. I'll be making and posting healthy and delicious food in no time!
