You might need these 2 go to recipes to help you go through a cold.
1st one: Onion Juice.
Now we call it onion juice but it is more onion broth. You take 2 onions, cut them in half and place them in a medium casserole, cover them with water , bring to a boil and simmer gently about 30 min.
Now I don't even bother to put this in the fridge. The onion halves will continue to steep in it and in a maximun of 2 days you will have drunk it all. It is great if you feel you have chest or sinus congestion. It will clean you out too.
Now for the second one: Onion and garlic syrup
You take a Mason jar and you fill it with chopped onion and garlic. I took a 2 cups (500ml ) jar for this. After you drizzle honey in it; it will take at least one cup to have everything covered. Let it steep on the counter overnight. In the morning, strain and keep in a jar in the fridge. You need to take one to two tablespoons in the morning and at night.
We've tested these recipes and they work well.
My Dad just had a baaaaad cold and I was worried because he has COPD. I told him about the onion broth and now he raves about it! Cleared most of the congestion in 48 hours.
Now about the last post....
I don't think I mentionned that everything was thrifted!
The large seasshell was a gift, the smaller one I got as
a twofer at Value Village for $1.99. The Yankee Candle was $1, new - unused at a garage sale, the big ashtray was a gift as well
and the needlepoint frame was a big ol'quarter at the church basement .
Now just how sweet is that???
I've got to go, SNL is on!
Be well my thrifty friends
