Recipe For Oven Dried Tomatoes

As much as I do not like being sick, I also do not like tablets. I usually self medicate. Sometimes this is successful and other times not. I take all sorts of naturopathic concoctions and hope for the best. I was not well a month ago, and managed to chase away the lurgies with my echinacea, vitamin C and the likes. Two trips back to gym and I got sick again. As we had a trip to George planned and then I travelled away from home, I could not stay sick. I know when I am about to get a sore throat, I crave tomatoes. It is the natural vitamin C that my body craves. Inspired by Chica Andaluza, I made these oven dried tomatoes to help keep the sore throat at bay. So far, that has worked. Now I just need to figure out how to turn the tap of the post nasal drip off!

  5. Sorry to hear you are not feeling well. It sounds like you are doing everything to get better. Made sure to get enough rest…and the whisky doesn’t sound bad. Add lemon and honey to it and you will have a nice bit of medicine. Take care.
