Since it seems to be doing the rounds [Saturday

[ mood | awake ]

Thought I'd post this since sore throats seem to be doing the rounds just now.

Soothe the pain of a sore throat with marshmallow tea

You'll need:

250ml (8fl oz) water
1 teaspoon marshmallow root
1 teaspoon chopped fresh ginger root
1 teaspoon dried peppermint

What to do:

Simmer the marshmallow root and ginger root for five minutes in water in a covered pot. Remove from the heat, add peppermint, cover, and steep for an additional ten minutes. Strain, sweeten if desired, and drink as often as needed.

Enchiladas [Wednesday
December 14th, 2005 at 2:08pm]

I just had a lovely veggie enchilada at my work. They were stuffed with cauilflour (sp), green beans, and I think baby corn things. I want to try and make them now but can't find a decent recipe on the web. I'll have a look through my books but was wondering if anyone here had made any before. Some of the recipes I found used tin salsa etc but I want to make them from scratch.
