runny nose pasta.

My boyfriend has had really bad sinus problems lately, and I've just been thinking (1) poor thing (2) thank god that doesn't happen to me (well, I mean, of course there's a (1.5) I wish I could do something to help).

Yeah well this weekend my sinuses decided to freak out. My nose has been running like crazy and I was sneezing repeatedly throughout the weekend. I'm talking huge, wet sneezes.

I've done various things this weekend to try and help: Putting my tea kettle sit on the burner letting steam out for hours to add moisture to the air, Using Vicks, Running a small humidifier in my room, Performing a "nasal rinse" (similar to using a neti pot), .... Okay, anyways, I've been doing everything.

Today I decided tonight's dinner should be SPICY. It looks innocent in the picture, but I put in a decent amount of ground red chili pepper hoping to loosen up my sinuses. Success.

I also had half of a glass of red wine from a bottle that's been open for almost two weeks.*

And, after dinner, I had a chocolate truffle.

These are so good! I picked them up on a whim at Target because they were on sale.

* = I recently purchased a wine pump from Ross for $8. A very well spent $8, especially if you live alone and like to drink wine!
