I am not feeling very well today. I feel like there is a tenis ball covered in toothpicks stuck down my throat to be exact.
Most annoying because I am meant to be going to the HOLY CITY of Jerusalem tonight (which I will do anyway) and I was meant to get a weights workout in at the gym (not going to do -I am sure my mum will be pleased).
The GOOD thing about having a sore throat- yes you read correctly- is that you can eat as much honey out the jar with a teaspoon as you like without the guilt. Its all in the name of medical treatment. Honey is one of my most favourite snacks! ( er… i’m not sure one can actually call honey a snack… but seeing as though I have no editor except me on this blog… a snack it is.)
You might think all honies are made equal. I am pretty sure Pooh Bear would tell you that is just simply NOT TRUE.
Oh wow… there it is. Liquid HEAVEN.
Now the sad thing is I can’t get this little jar of joy where I live (almost worth going back to live in NZ for) but luckily for me, my mum sent this baby over here with my sister to give to a friend. Unbeknownst to my mum, this friend doesn’t like honey (??!!) but this happy little fact was beknownst to me so of course I did a little happy-jig and the Manuka honey is now safe and sound with me.
Manuka honey has healing properties and is anti-bacterial. And tastes AMAZING
So I have been eating out the jar- oops I mean drinking LOTS of LEMON AND HONEY TEA and I decided to make some cookies to go along with it.
I cooked up 1/2 cup quinoa and mixed it all together and put it in the freezer.
I based the numbers on 24 cookies in the batch… but I think there were more… coz I ate some along the way.
