So here's the thing: Because I'm a filthy scrub King that can't go a month without doing something impulsive, I've gone back to Minnesota to meet people at camp before heading off on a 15 day road trip, going from Duluth, MN to South Dakota, Wyoming and Utah before arriving in Vegas, NV, spending a few days there and then heading to Palo Alto, CA before finishing back in Minneapolis. As such I'll be doing my best to keep colds and sickness at bay using as many remedies as possible. This recipe combines everything a student needs for a hug in a mug that keeps you going.


What to do with the double cream?? ;)


It looks awesome, too bad the recepy is incomplete, it doesn't say anything about freezing the cream at all...
