Ginger-Lemon Soother

     Finally!!! I woke up this morning feeling MUCH better that I have the last 5 days. Only got one fever in the middle of the night and although I have been up since 4am, I am feeling less achey and have been cleaning house this morning.  I found a cold-remedy recipe online yesterday, but couldn't find it again today. I knew it included ginger, lemon and some water. Seemed easy enough.  And wow, it really was.  I know there are quite a few of you with sore throats, give this a try!

Ginger-Lemon Soother

2 cups water
4 slices lemon
1 inch unpeeled ginger root, sliced
2 Tbsp honey

1) Bring to a boil
2) Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes 
3) Strain through a sieve into a mug
4) Stir in honey
5) Sip & soothe

Here are some other recipes I found that involve more work and deeper flavor, but I didn't have the time or patience for that today.   When I have more time, I will definitely try these out though!
