flu and its comforts


Back to school and the turning season seems to have a side effect on me - I catch a bug every time.

There were supposed to be some nice posts up this week, but instead of composing sentences and editing I was coming down with the flu. It's quite clear that this weekend will be spent with recovering from it, but hey at least I have my flu comforts to which I can turn.

I have a very nice camphor cream to help me breath and prevent that painful tissue-rubbed nose, there's of course Masterchef to watch, and I can slurp my hot pho or its lazy version the clear soup while trying to imagine the flavour combinations the competing chefs come up with during the program.

Hopefully I'll have some energy during the next couple of days to prepare some blogposts as well as a lot of clear soup...

I hope most of you don't have a bug to battle with this weekend but just in case you do, here is this super simple soup in recipe form to help you along.

  1. Love those little snippets of your home - and I have to say I really enjoy watching Masterchef, my husband doesn't really understand how I haven't grown bored of it after all these years..
    I hope you feel better very soon!

    1. masterchef is such a good show - there are so many aspects to it that makes it non-boring. i only enjoy the uk one though, there's a finnish one here but we don't watch that, because it's nothing like the original.

  3. Oh no, that sucks! Hope you're feeling better soon! :-) When I am sick I love watching crappy television (because reading is just too exhausting) and then spend the rest of the day complaining about all that crappy television.

    1. it's sometimes so good to just watch tv - and every once in a while we even get lucky and catch a really good show :) i'm quite addicted to watching Bargain Hunt too, do you know it? it's about two teams trying to find good stuff at carboot sales and antique fairs and then make some money with the finds at auctions... i only complain if it's not on ;)

  5. get well soon! I received your gift awhile ago, so lovely. <3 thank you again! :) I used to catch a flu every single time there was a chance. but my immune system is much stronger since I started to run regularly, drink lots of smoothies and eating more veggies. :) thanks for the recipe, chili makes (almost) everything better. :)
