Tastes Like Pink Felt

Juuust a couple of hot messes over here…

Lucky me came down with a head cold on Thursday – sneezing, runny nose, sinus headache and pressure like you wouldn’t believe – and was pretty much out of commission all day Friday and Saturday. Just as I started to feel better today, Ben went down for the count!

Instead of cheersing with bubbly champagne to our long, MLK Jr Day weekend, we clinked stemless glassware with fizzy Alka Seltzer Plus.

OMG – never again! “It tastes like pink felt!” Ben cried! Ew, it did. It really did. Thick, syrupy, and, well, PINK. Wretched!

However horrendous, it did get us both out of the house and over to my parent’s for Sunday lunch, where my Mom had Mediterranean Chicken over Pan-Fried Gnocchi bubbling in the crock pot. :)

I don’t think I can ever eat non-pan fried gnocchi again. It is so good! Here was her inspiration.

Ben started getting quiet during lunch, and finally turned and asked if there was anything in the Alka Seltzer that would make him sleepy.

Eek! The antihistamine for runny noses! We learned antihistamine hits Ben hard when he almost fell face-first into his dinner plate after taking Benedryl a few Thanksgiving’s ago. If it wasn’t so sad, it would have been hilarious. Ok it was hilarious.

I completely forgot it sends him straight to snoozeville, so I whisked him home so he could sleep it off. Meanwhile I’m taking the quiet time to dig into a new book my Mom lent me, The Glass Castle. (Maybe I should change my nail polish first?! Ahhh!) I’ll let you how it is!

Hope you had a nice weekend!
