I’ve spent the past two days in bed, with the stomach flu.
It’s a little ironic that the night before my husband was “lecturing” me about taking days off. I barely settled for one day, giving him the “yeah. sure, I’ll take a day off. we’ll see”. There I was the next morning running for the bathroom. I didn’t have a choice, there was no getting up. all. day. long. 48 hours later and I’m just now able to handle my computer screen. The only thing I’ve been able to eat is peanut butter toast, gluten-free. My mom use to make it for me anytime I had the flu or an upset stomach and to this day, it still does the trick.
Speaking of Peanut butter. . .
Friday was a big day in the food/online/blogging community. Jennifer Perillo lost her husband to a sudden heart attack a week ago this Sunday. In honor of her husband, she suggested making a Peanut Butter Pie, Mikey’s favorite, and sharing it with loved ones. Over a 1,000 people made a Peanut Butter Pie. Incredible!
So today, Monday, I will be taking the day off and spending it with my husband.
Hope today brings you nothing but great joy and laughter.
ps. my favorite kind of peanut butter [or almond butter] is the you-press-it kind [I don't know the official name] at Whole Foods or other natural markets.
