Well, I can honestly say this has been one of the longest weeks of my life. I have been super-sick, not ER sick, but 10 seconds from ER sick. I believe it was some kind of flu. It started with my toddler. Thankfully, she had a very mild case. Unlucky me caught it next and boy oh boy will I remember that experience for the rest of my existence. To makes things worse, we've all had a cold for over a week as well. So, before I became 10 seconds from ER sick, and life was simply about dealing with a cold, my husband suggested a drink that people in North Africa (and other places too, I'm sure) make to help soothe cold symptoms. I am not sure it soothed any of our symptoms, but it sure is yummy.
By the way, the picture above is proof that my toddler did all of the cooking while I was ill. She left her broccoli and knife right on my cutting board! ;)

Serving Size = 1
- 1 cup of milk
- 1 tablespoon of honey (or more, or less - to taste)
- 1 cinnamon stick
- Pinch of ground cinnamon
- Heat 1 cup of milk to almost boiling, making sure to watch carefully and stir often. Add the cinnamon stick and then turn off the heat. Leave the milk for about 10 minutes so the cinnamon stick can flavor it.
- Add 1 tablespoon of honey to a cup. When the milk is done, pour into the glass and stir. Sprinkle with the ground cinnamon.
