|My favorite "toddy" is this Hot Buttered Rum.|
No clue as to what in tar-nations this is. No temperature, intermittent sore throat, cough, cough, hack, hack, then sneeze and blow your nose. And, it is reluctant to leave. I am going on 3 weeks with it. Let me say it is much, much better now than the first two weeks. But still, GO AWAY, please!
My Dr. called in cough medicine and when I went to pick it up and saw they wanted $80 some dollars for it I told them they could keep it. I am WAY to cheap to spend that on a little bottle of cough medicine. I went to hot toddies and black elderberry tea and have felt most comforted. And I highly recommend both!

Usually I have elderberry syrup made up or I mix 1 teaspoon of whatever tea I am making plus 1/2 teaspoon of dry black elderberries together per cup and brew as usual. Delicious. Here is the link on the making of the syrup. thehiddenpantry.blogspot.com/2011/08/black-elderberry-syrup-and-jasmine-tea.html
After I came home from Church I sat and quilted until my fingers got sore. Then I give it up until the next day and am sure as my fingers strengthen or callus I will go for longer sessions. I am a sight as I peer through my bi-focal's trying to make tiny hand stitches and hack, hack, hack away. My salvation is a big glass of ice water I keep handy!
Thank you all for all of the WONDERFUL comments you have left lately. I have really enjoyed reading them and many are treasures!
Gotta go now, hacking again. It might be toddy time. Here is the link should you want one too! thehiddenpantry.blogspot.com/2010/11/hot-buttered-rum.html
