I had decided not to write a blog today, I was going to take a break for the Memorial Day holiday. As usual, we had the family over for a big meal. My husband grilled chicken and hot dogs and we usually grill salmon for family members who don’t eat meat. Today though, we had fried fish which was very tasty too. Our side dishes were baked beans, potato salad, macaroni and cheese and fruit salad. Everything was so tasty that we all ate way too much and I ended up administering one of my natural remedies for overindulgence.
Some of the grownups had second helpings of several dishes and my grandson even had thirds! When we slowed down and I started hearing, “I’m stuffed,” I knew I had to fix a remedy. I boiled some water in the teapot and poured a cup for all of us. I added one teaspoon of honey, a pinch of baking soda and one drop of peppermint essential oil to each cup. We all sipped our tea and talked about going for a walk around the neigborhood when we came back from putting flowers on Granny’s grave. After the walk, we each had a dish of ice cream – we never learn, but at least we know how to take care of our upset stomachs.
