Ginger Ale and Tummy Bugs
Phew, what a week! Last Friday I was knocked flat on my back with the flu, and it was bad. I haven’t been that sick since I was pregnant. Hubby, our 5 year old daughter and I were all sick over the weekend and then the boys got sick the day before yesterday. So far, the babe has escaped it. I was hit the worst and only yesterday did I finally get out of my pajamas. To top it all off, our 5 year old had a very nasty allergic reaction to some laundry detergent residue and we ended up taking her to the doctors. She is doing better and on a nice little cocktail of meds to try and get it under control. The welts are going away and she is itching a little less, poor thing. With all these recovering little tummies, I wanted to try my hand at making some ginger ale. A couple of months ago, Amy over at Progressive Pioneer featured a recipe for homemade ginger ale in her Friday Make and Do!. I thought this was the perfect time to try it out, so I got the recipe and gave it a shot. Boy, was it good. I loved the lime in it and it definitely helped settle my tummy. The kids loved it too. It seems everyone is on the mend, but I still have a mountain of laundry to catch up on and normal routines to get back into. I’m hoping to be back tomorrow, but we’ll see how today goes first.
