Anecdotal evidence, and more on cookies

For what it's worth:
  • Mik (who does not drink green tea) seems to be catching a cold. Dex (two cups of green tea a day) is still fine. That's not the normal order of things.
  • My sister told me she has been giving her 7-year-old a cup of green tea a day, but she doesn't give it to her two younger kids. The 7-year-old was the only one who didn't barf at least once last week.
In other news, I bought a green plantain and used it as a Paleo cookie ingredient. The cookies were not perfect, but they were highly, highly promising. Further research will be required. Unfortunately, since plantains are members of the banana family, they're all but a banned substance in my house. I'm going to have to acquire them on the sly somehow, since I don't usually do the grocery shopping.

The kids keep complaining (through mouthfuls of cookies) that they liked the OLD cookie recipe, and why do I keep messing with it? What they don't realize is that the day I stop messing with the recipe is the day I get bored and stop making cookies all the time.

Also, there is no "old" recipe; I've literally never made the same one twice, even after writing it down. That's just the way of me.

  1. I have a recipe for a "Cold Kicker Juice". Maybe if Mik trys it he'll opt for Green Tea instead.

    1/4 C ginger root, grated
    1/4 C onion, chopped
    1/4 C rosemary, chopped
    1/4 C sage leaves, chopped
    1/4 C horseradish, grated
    4-6 cloves of garlic (approx. 4tsp.) grated
    2 Tbs. cayanne pepper
    organic apple cider vinegar to cover

    Fill 1 qt. jar to 1" from top. Shake daily for 2-4 weeks. Strain. Heat gently and add 1/4 C honey. Stir to disolve. Rebottle.
