Celebrate: Sour Stomach Cure & Giveaways

Last Saturday, I apparently ate something that was past its expire date and full of germs (bacteria? microbes? ALIENS??). It freaked out my stomach. The result was ... icky. Really, really icky, like I became best friends with a bucket for a couple of days there.

Luckily, my bucket and I parted ways about midweek. During my war with my stomach, only one thing went down and stayed. My sour stomach cure was:

Yes, vanilla ice cream. The cold and creamy consistency did a lot to settle my stomach. My husband said I was being childish, but he went to the store and got more when I asked. (And when it comes to being sick, aren't most of us just big babies anyway?)

So this week, I'm celebrating Vanilla Ice Cream!

Do you have a special "cure" when you get sick that might sound strange to others?
