colds and comfort

We're nursing a bit of a cold here this week, and so the days have been lazy and filled with things that bring us comfort:
Tea


  "Chao," a Vietnamese rice porridge


Boiled vegetables in broth


Blankets (lots of them)


Hope you are well and comfortable, friends.

  1. Feel better soon...and that picture of Vietnamese rice porridge makes me want some rice pudding! Not sure if they're at all alike in taste, but they look similar!

  2. My baby has a little quilt made from that same blue animal fabric, Jaime- isn't that funny?!

    Yes, the rice porridge looks fabulous. Perhaps you would share the recipe? We eat a lot of rice--it helps me stretch meals to feed our big family!

    Feel better soon.

  9. I've been drinking SO MUCH TEA these days...mostly because real winter has set in. I have a blanket in the exact same barnyard fabric as yours!

    1. I'm starting to think that fabric is a prerequisite for homesteading life or something ;)

  16. Oh, I hope you feel better very soon! Is your rice porridge the same as what some call congee? Rest and be well!

    1. Hi Mia! Yes, now that I think about it, it's very similar to congee, but a little more mild tasting I think.

  17. Hope your tender loving care has everyone on the mend VERY soon. I fear our family is headed for a cold - tickles in throats and "funny" feeling noses today have me worried!
