We love Fantastic Friday (every Friday – or nearly every one) we like to mention some of our favorite posts of the week.   This week I found a bunch of home remedies including DIY cough drops, recipe to make your own really nice smelling disinfectant spray, and a bunch or chicken soup and make-ahead meals you can have waiting in your freezer.   Everyone hates being sick.   Here are some simple things that you can make and prepare to help you fight those germs! … Homemade cough drops.   You can find instructions on wiki-how that tell you how to make the cough drops.       Mrs. Harding has a number of different recipes – I have personally tried homemade licorice cough drops.   A friend was kind enough to make some for me, and I loved them!   They are great for a sore throat.   Add crushed vitamin C for extra zing and health benefits! … Pepper Paints is a fun homeschooling site.   She has a great solution to Lysol!   It is non-toxic, biodegradable and smells great!   Totally safe for your preschoolers to use walking around the house spraying all the doorknobs and table/counter surfaces.   Let’s not share those germs! … And the final shout-out for the day goes to one of my new favorite blogs.   I am trying to get back into Once-a-month-cooking, and this mom has some great chicken soup and make-ahead meal ideas!   I know one thing, when I am sick I do NOT want to cook!   Chicken Soup is supposed to be easier to digest and helps you heal faster.   I love how Candi makes the soup in muffin tins – perfectly portioned for the “ill” person in the house! Another yummy recipe is this super-easy potato soup from June Cleaver Nirvana!   My kind of recipe. … Interested in teaching your kids about Germs?
