Sick again!

No matter what I do, it seems that I can't catch a break. 
I go to sleep Friday night looking forward to the long weekend, just to wake up in the morning all swollen and stuffy!!! Another cold! 

Enough is enough already! All my weekend plans fell through, I decided to stop everything and take care of this cold once and for all! 

 One thing that makes me feel better when I have a cold is so drink hot beverages, specially tea and chamomile with a teaspoon of honey......aaahhhh! It's good when I need to go to sleep and I feel either too stuffy or my nose won't stop running.....instant bliss! 

 But during the day I feel restless and I can't stop thinking of things to do, the kids need this and that......what is a mom to do?? 

One thing that I found soothing is eating a good bowl of green or red curry at my favorite Thai restaurant. BUT.....I'm cheap and going to the restaurant every time I have a cold at this pace is really not doable, plus today the restaurant was closed!!! 
So I scoured the local grocery store and found the ingredient to make my own curry!! 
It's pretty easy actually! All you need is this:
Coconut milk, green or red curry paste and my secret ingredient, tabasco. 
Lately I seem to prefer green curry, but it's really a phase, I like them both. 
The tabasco, I like it as it gives it a spicy kick and trust me, if you have a cold you want something like this: hot, creamy and spicy.....clears your sinuses right up! 

I have to thank my friend Eva for introducing me to Thai food that by the way is gluten free and way healthier that any other food out there. 
Also, thanks to my friend Aggie that directed me to the appropriate aisle of the grocery store so I could do curry in my own kitchen. 

What I usually do is during the weekend I boil a can of coconut milk, stir in 2 tablespoons of the curry paste, a little bit of tabasco and voila', the curry is made. 
Then throw in whatever left overs I have, usually veggies, pieces of chicken or shrimp, boil some rice and pour it over. 
 But I also tried it over left over spaghetti noodles today and once I sprinkled a spoon of the sauce over my blend boiled tilapia and it was delicious! 

Well, I guess you got the gist, I love this stuff everywhere and wanted to share XO

Happy Valentine's day!

Not sure why this post didn't post as scheduled on the 14th. Hope you will enjoy it even a few days late!
This is the season of love and I hope you're celebrating surrounded by loved ones!
We have been busy eating chocolates and making Valentines!
We made little brown cards that say "You're so sweet!!!", trimmed the edges with a fancy scissor to make them look as cookies.
Then personalized with names and attached a little heart candy to the back. 
Looking good! 

Here a picture of the kids all intent in their work!
Shhhh! Don't disturb the geniuses LOL post signature
