Under The Weather

In case your your wondering, I’m still here. I just haven’t felt like blogging in a while. 
This is the first time in a week that I have been able to keep my eyes open after 8pm. I have had an awful crud.

It started as a runny nose and sore throat. I figured it was allergies since I suffer from those all year round. So I took my Allegra D to clear it up.
The next day it was not cleared up and in fact, I felt worst. I figured then that I have caught at cold. The first cold I have had in four years.

As the week went on, each day I kept feeling worst. I could have sworn I had the Covid virus, but I never had a fever or lost my senses. I continued going to work, wearing my mask and keeping my distance from others just in case. 

After four days of not getting any better, I finally called into work late and took a home covid test. It came back negative so I called the doctor and made an appointment to see him. I needed some relief. I was miserable. I had all the symptoms of the flu. 

The doctor diagnosed me with a sinus infection, gave me a steroid shot to make me feel instant relief and then wrote me a prescription for an antibiotic.

It’s been three days since my diagnosis and being on the meds. I feel better but still have a cough as it has all settled in my chest. I have not missed a days work but it’s been a rough road. I feel like I could have broke a rib coughing so much. Yep I’m sore but I am glad that I’m finally feeling better and can get back to normal. I have cookies to make next weekend and want to make sure I’m free of any sicknesses. 

For the record: My husband is fine and has not caught anything. 

Did you know?
You are not contagious unless your running a fever.
You can not catch a cold by going outside in the cold. 
A cold is a virus and you pick it up by germs or particles in the air. 
Clear mucus is a sign of allergies.
Yellow or green mucus is a sign of a cold or infection. 
Got a tickle in your throat that keeps you coughing? Just eat a spoon of peanut butter or honey.

On a good note: I have most of my Christmas shopping done. 
Are you ready for Christmas? 

Pecan Pie In A Mug

I am not a big “pie” person. I’d rather have cake but if I do eat pie, it’s gonna be pecan. That is my absolute favorite. I like the regular old fashion kind. Some people make chocolate pecan pie which is good but the original is still better. 

Cheese cake is my 2nd favorite kind of pie. And yes, I consider cheese cake a pie. It has a crust bottom and eaten like pie. SO, it’s pie. 

The other day I was craving something sweet and realized I had all the ingredients to make a pecan pie but did not want to make a whole pie. That’s when I went on a search for a single serve size. 

This recipe calls for honey instead of Karo Syrup but it did not disappoint. It was delicious and only a couple minutes to throw together and cooked in the microwave. It don’t get any easier than that. 
The recipe can be found HERE.

I used to love to eat those little Bama brand pecan pies from the convenient stores. I still do but I try not to give in. 
Momma made pecan pies for Thanksgiving and I’m sure there will be one on the table at Christmas. She makes the best.

What is you favorite kind of pie?
