Hubby is really suffering again today, so I am all for spoiling him.
I cooked stew for dinner adding more veg and an extra onion. Mum always used to swear by onions for colds, and sometimes would buy the little shallots and put them whole in her stews. Us kids would be thrilled to have one all to ourselves, and with dumplings as well, we were well spoiled.
Hubby doesn’t like dumplings so I don’t make them, but the mix was practically solid with veg, so that has to be good for us.
I noticed the other day that our local discount supermarket had my preferred kitchen roll on special offer again this week at £4.99 for 6. They usually retail around £3.50 for two, so this was a true bargain, but I didn’t have enough money to buy any, so we decided to go up today and hope they still had some.
Luckily, there were 4 packs left on the shelf (they get a single palette, and when it’s gone, it’s gone) so I got one and also a jam doughnut for Hubby.
In other places these past few shopping days I’ve bought a pack of two belgian buns which he’s had over two days as the sugar boosts his energy levels. Surprisingly, neither of these seem to affect his reflux issues, so that’s a good sign.
However, too much in the cold remedy line has bunged me up a little so I’m falling back on the old favourite of liquorice (allsorts) but these particular packs don’t have the fondant squares or coconut ice wheels, just the bobbly ones and liquorice rolls which should do the trick. Hubby likes the rolls too, so we can share. My reflux seems to have settled down, and I’ve had several cherry tomatoes this week and a bowl of defrosted black forest fruit which I topped with natural greek yoghurt.
My sore throat refuses to go away though, so I am still on the hot milk and honey which isn’t helping my syns any, but at least I can swallow.
No darts tonight, and to be honest, I’m rather glad.
