I've been fighting this weird sinus thing
for the past couple months.
I thought it was just allergies at first.
And I've been fighting it with OTC meds.
I just don't like going to the doctor.
Then about two weeks ago it just got worse.
At night, I couldn't breathe.
And I couldn't sleep.
But still I didn't want to go to the doctor.
I tried just about everything out there.
And then I just couldn't stand it anymore.
I had big plans for this weekend and
I wanted to feel good.
So I went to the doctor.
He said that my sinuses were so
swollen that he couldn't see anything and
had to do an xray of my head.
Is that weird?
Do people that have colds get their heads xrayed normally?
I think not.
He kind of yelled at me and said
that if a sinus infection is not treated
it can go to the brain.
Like I'm using that.
Chill out Doctor.
Thank God I didn't have an actual emergency.
So, I will be finished with all my meds
by Saturday which is awesome
because I'm going to be hanging out
with my Blog Buddies all weekend.
So then this morning I knew I needed soup.
Spicy Cheesy Chicken Soup.
It's truly delicious.
And chock full of veggies and chicken
and spices that open my sinuses.
You can find the recipe here.
And her picture is so much prettier that I'll post it here.
So yummy and worth the effort!
Now, let's move on to cake.
Because everyone loves cake.
My husband has been craving my pumpkin cake
but I just haven't felt up to making a cake from
When I was at the grocery today,
I saw something new in the baking aisle.
I figured I'd give it a try.
Duncan Hines Apple Caramel Cake.
I figured even I could find the time
and energy to make a boxed cake.
After mixing the batter and pouring it in a pan
you randomly spread some
caramel apple sauce on top
I can tell you that it looks and smells really good.
Next time I would use a smaller pan than a 9x13.
It was a little thinner than I like.
I would love to tell you that it was delicious.
While it smelled great
I was unable to taste it because
I burnt my tongue
on my soup.
Because I am an extremely impatient soup eater.
Now off to do laundry
and probably clean up the yard a little.
