Homemade Stew

A stuffy nose leads to runny nose, frozen toes and thick as jelly mucus sitting in your chest not allowing you to rest, mucus really sucks because there is nothing you can do but suck on lozenges and say aw nuts - sitting on the couch all afternoon watching cartoons run across your living room listening to geese fly by thinking is it time to lie down and rest just take a breath and maybe two. My lungs feel like they have ingested glue they huff and puff to no avail so off to the kitchen I go to warm a big huge heaping bowl of... touch of magic, toad tongues stew, a pinch of nutmeg, thyme for two - what are some homemade remedies that work for you?

"He told me he had a delicious recipe for Toad Stew, and after a little bit of coaxing, he agreed to share it with me!' 'Would you help me gather the ingredients for it? I still need some toad tongues and legs. You will find toads all along the rivers that run through Tâl Bruinen, I wager.. I understand that the green river-toads have the tastiest legs and tongues! Don't come back here with legs and tongues from the red ones. Wéthorm was most specific on that point!" ---Lord of the Rings---
