Lemon-Honey Tea

It's that time again. And again. And again. 
Everyone is sick in Arizona because we don't know what to do with ourselves when temperatures go below the 70s. When I was pregnant, I couldn't take a lot (as in any) medicine to combat sore throats, congestion, and aches. I found a zippy little recipe online for lemon-honey tea that I just absolutely fell in love with and have quite often. 

Mugful of Water (approximately 1 c.)
Microwave for two minutes (or boil for you holistic folk) then add:
.5-1 T. Sugar
1 T. Lemon Juice
2 T. Honey
StirStirStir and...
Lemon Honey Tea. 
Fresh, Flavorful, Therapeutic. 
Original recipe found HERE.

Today Elliott, Beckett, Brianne, Brennan, and I ventured into the magical land of Apache Junction to go to a swap meet. Elliott was able to get a few handy tools there for dental waxing as per a recommendation of a lab tech at his school. In addition to accomplishing our mission, there were some impulse buys that consisted of Girl Scout Cookies (One box of Thin Mints, Samoas, and Tagalongs if you must know). As well as a few *interesting* ball caps, a 3D wooden Koala Puzzle (for my ASU Storage friends--we're Koazy for Koalas), a prickly pear cactus, a deck of cards, and a belt. 
It was incredibly gross and crowded, but all the while still fun.
Hey, and at least now I know where to go for immediate girl scout cookies and half-price cacti!

My family and I used to go to the one downtown. The difference between you and my parents? My parents thought it would be a good idea to go in July. Which means the swap meet memory that sticks out the most for me is when I threw up regurgitated red snow cone all over the hot asphalt while 50+ people stared in horror/screamed/jumped/ran away...Ah memories...

Ohhh Jackie, poor you! I've only been to the Indoor Swapmart (once) when I was little. It's funny you bring up going in July--this swap meet was only open from October through April! Maybe just too many kids throwing up snow cones ;) Hey at least it's a little cooler where you're at! Ok, ok... maybe a polar opposite to AZ!

I had to google your Lemon Honey Tea recipe today. See how helpful you are to the internet world! Now... it better work. Or else... um... no Monday back up for school? Hah. I kid.
