It's been tummy bug all round here since last Wednesday.  All four children and Dan fell ill the same day.

After cleaning our bathrooms three times, cooking Thanksgiving dinner, and working my way through innumerable stacks of laundry, I succumbed early this morning.


Feeling lots better now, and considering climbing out of bed after writing a few Christmas cards to trot downstairs for the purpose of trying a curative or two.  One, peppermint and nettle tea.  Two, lassi made with Yeo Valley natural plain yoghurt.  Lassi is an Indian drink of natural yoghurt blended with ice cubes and a bit of something sweet.  I usually sweeten it with agave syrup.  Natural yoghurt is the first thing we eat after a tummy bug.

No chance of drinking coffee yet!  But I was thinking about a hot, steaming cup this afternoon.  The worst thing of having a tummy bug, for me, is no coffee.

    In Bulgaria I drank yogurt with water quite a bit. It was just natural plain yogurt, no sweetner, thinned with plain water. I was surprised at how refreshing it was. Of course, we ate it with about everything else as well. Very smooth and light. The bacteria comes from the ground so it's already to go in the milk. Pretty neat, huh?
