Day three of our Saltine and Ginger ale diet. I have thrown in Gatorade to stave off dehydration and mania. I tried finding fun facts about Saltines to share because after three days of debilitating illness, I am convinced they are saving my life. If you have ever had food poisoning, a hangover or a belly ache of any kind, you have honored the Saltine and held it in high regard as I do now. My search came up empty and my ability to sit up any longer is fading. I did not find any real insight on why they do what they do. It just is, they heal and that is that.
I do however have a very special recipe to share featuring of all things, the Saltine. It is a sweet sensation to enjoy when my tummy is in a happier place, its a toffee of all things. This toffee was first given to us as a gift from our friend Lisa. After we inhaled the ones she gave us we begged her for more. They are that good. According to Lisa, they are so easy to make it is ridiculous. Thank you Lisa and thank you Saltines. I love you.
