When Life Gives You Lemons ...


Around here we never really did have a spring.  And suddenly it is summer now, which means that I have allergies - to what, specifically, I'm not sure.  My mom told me to try honey and lemon to soothe a sore throat and hey, it works pretty well!  I just eyeball my desired amount of honey into a teacup and squeeze some fresh lemon in there and add hot water.  Stir and viola - a delicious hot drink to calm my poor throat.

It has also been the perfect afternoon "tea" for when I am trying to avoid caffeine.

M makes the same thing for me when I have a sore throat and I now make it for the kids. His mom used to make it for him. Simple and tasty!

If you can get your hands on some local honey, that just might help with your allergies too.

Honey and lemon ... a divine combination. And when sipped from a gorgeous poppy vessel? Even better.
