The weather finally broke this week, meaning it's still very warm during the day, but it gets cold (read: 65°F) at night. This would be a much celebrated event, except every year the weather change knocks me flat with a sinus infection. This year is no exception. At least it didn't happen during Hell Week.

I've been eating a lot of miso soup (with tons of green onions), and drinking tea with lemon and honey, and just now I made Carrot Orange Ginger Soup. It's delicious, sinus clearing (as only a hot liquid with tons of fresh shredded ginger in it can be) and probably the prettiest soup I've ever seen (it's bright orange - way orangier than the photo with the recipe - and I put a little swirl of cream on top when I dished up my bowl, which, through the wonders of Brownian motion, turned into a smiley face). I wish I'd taken a picture.

ETA:

The World's Prettiest Soup!
 

No smile, but still pretty.

65°F is cold? *blink blink*

Sorry you're feeling poopy. I love ginger. When I go to Mongolian BBQ, I always pile it on. Of course, It's often in my home cookin too.

^__^

Feel better kay?

It's significantly colder than it was last week. ^_^; like a 20-30 degree drop. Enough to knock my immune system all to hell. It was about 60 this morning, and breezy, which I would ordinarily love, but because I'm feeling poorly, I was shivering.

I often drink ginger-lemon tea when I have the sniffles. This soup, though, works even better. It should be sold as medicine. *is eating some right now*
