Home Remedies and Easy Pizza

So although I have buffalo chicken pizza on my brain, we just ordered pizza tonight – I didn’t want to get my germs all over everyone’s pizza!   Next week that will definitely be on the menu!

classic sausage pizza with my trusty Tabasco!

 So Tony has been on the internet trying to find home remedies for my cough.  It’s a dry cough, not a satisfying cough if you know what I mean!  Other than that I feel fine!   It’s so annoying!

So first up:  1 teaspoon honey, 1 teaspoon lemon juice, warm water and drink.  The results?  Didn’t help.

Next up:  Vick’s Vaporub on my feet with socks.  The results?  Not sure yet.

Now he’s shouting “do we have cayenne pepper and ground ginger?’  I think I need to get him off the computer!

I hope I feel better tomorrow – its football weekend and I have a lot planned!  Off to relax – we just saw Howie do it.  When I laugh that makes me cough too, so maybe we should stick to dramas tonight! 

Sleep tight!

  1. got my card and gift certificate today!!! Thank you soooooooo much!! i can’t wait to get lunch w/ meghann at wf!!

  2. Haha – I hope the home remedies work! You’ll have to let us know 🙂

  3. My dad always used to make me a “hot toddy” when I was sick. It was a mug of very hot water, with honey, lemon, a cinnamon stick, and some cloves. Sounds similar to the thing you tried earlier today though. But maybe the cloves and cinnamon make a difference? Hope you feel better!

  4. I hope u feel better biz! I’ve been in the ER all day with my mom- i have the worst headache and nausea and it was so awful. We just got back and she made me dinner and did all the nice mommy stuff 😀 I was perusing blogs with her and i showed her yours and your “first person” page about Hannah and we were both tearing up…love u guys!

  5. i used to get these coughs ALL the time! the only thing that would help— surprisingly is childrens triaminic cough syrup– i have no idea why but literally my coughing would keep me up ALL night but this helped within 10 min! hope this helps! that pizza loooks amazingggg!

  6. Hope you feel better tomorrow! Being sick is no fun, and having a dry cough like you described is the absolute worst. Hopefully your husband finds a remedy that works for you. Do you had a humidifier? That always helps me if I sleep with it on over night.

  7. hehe….i just posted about my version of a home remedy vs. Carlos’ version of a home remedy. HAHA….let me know which one you’d prefer!

    I wonder if I got my cold from reading your blog, or if you got yours from reading mine? Is that possible?

  8. Feel better soon.

    Maggie mentioned a hot toddy. I had those when I was little but Mom put a little whiskey in them. I don’t think they cured anything but I surely didn’t care. They knocked me out right away.

  9. Make sure you sleep sitting up. That helps you sleep at night. Use a lot of pillows and hopefully that will help you. My doctor gave me that advise last year. And when I recently caught a cold with a horrible cough. I slept sitting up and it helped tremendously. Good luck. I mean it. Having a cough that keeps you up at night is horrible.

  10. Oh no, hope you feel better soon! Hang in there Biz!

  11. Try the Vicks melted in a bowl of boiling water and then breathe those vapors…like a Vicks facial! That always works for my coughs.
    Get well soooooon 😦

  12. hmmmm. why do I always put a shot of vodka in with my tea and honey?

    dont know the medicinal reasons—but it works (wink)!

  13. Haha, let’s not borrow each other’s socks, shall we? I suggest you smoke a few cigarettes – then that dry coughing feeling will feel natural – and then you can just blame it on the smokes. And yes, I am a medical doctor.

    i love howie do it

  15. How could I not comment, with that yummy pizza picture saying hello? Hope you get to feeling better and less germy soon. Thanks for the recipes too – they all sound fantastic. (Though, right now, I’ve got pizza in mind)

  16. A shot of whiskey might do it… but who wants to buy a bottle of whiskey to only drink one shot!…. unless you like whiskey

  17. eeeek STOP using the vic’s rub. Recently, the FDA banned its use on kids claiming that it was a threat to health. I mean, despite the fact that you’re not a child, I still think that it’s not worth it to risk your well-being on a fundamentally faulty product!!!

    But um, as for the dry cough…Robitusin cough syrup does the trick for me because it coats the villi in your airway, which is what tickles and makes you cough when you breathe. 🙂 feel better!!

  18. Thanks for the comment 🙂 Have a great day and hope you feel better 🙂
    ❤ jess 🙂

  19. Thanks for all your suggestions! I went the whiskey route! 😀

    But I think cough medicine is in order today!
