My fever has been simmering for four days. I’ve been sulking under the covers, sipping on ginger-lemon-honey tea, alternating between dozing and surfing on the iPad . . . all the while building up a massive fortress of tissues around the bed. This morning I woke up and said, enough is enough. It was time for my cold to subside – my immune system was ready for a kickstart.
Luckily, the sun graced Amsterdam with her regal presence today, and the air was a friendly crisp. So after a long-overdue shower, I popped downstairs to stroll around the Albert Cuyp Market and score some weekend goodies and sweet, sweet sunshine. Just what the doctor prescribed!
I think I will bake them tomorrow night, bundled up inside a pastry roll with some honey and camembert. I also stocked up on chillies, as I throw these little guys in absolutely everything – scrambled eggs, pasta, dressing, soup – the spicier the better!
My splurge of the day was on a big bag of bright chinese eggplant. I’m happy just looking at these little ladies in the fridge, but I know they will taste equally gorgeous in a stew or italian parmesan.
My shelves are now stocked with an array of colors, vitamins and minerals – just what the doctor ordered! x
