How to cure a VIRUS.....

PEOPLE virus, that is....I don't think my cure here will work of COMPUTER bugs....:))






 I had a 12/24 hour virus not long ago and during that 12/24 hours, all I wanted to eat....

                           STARBUCKS COFFEE ICE CREAM.






I LOVE IT !!
 I had it in RED  SOLO CUPS 
( ♫♪♪ ...red solo cup...i lift you up.... ♪♫♫ )
I had it in CUTE coffee cups, filled with DUNKIN DONUTS coffee
and a big scoop of COFFEE ICE CREAM.




 ......and when I ran out....


  Mr. Sweet went to the grocery store and bought more for me.




 Ice cream is the original soul food, ya know.!

 I had if for BREAKFAST......
and for lunch......
and for dinner.....
and, I'll swear.......
it has HEALING POWERS
cause.....
I'M ALL BETTER.......:>)

Sharon @ Elizabeth & Co. said...

Sounds like the perfect cure to me!

Vee said...

Oh that cure sounds marvelous! You swear by it then?

Have you had someone leaving unkind comments? Hope that you dispatched them to the paper closet for half an hour.

TexWisGirl said...

i like your 'healing' methods! have never had starbucks brand, but ben and jerry's will do!

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Wow, that is some powerful stuff!

NanaDiana said...

You know what is REALLY funny? You know that I am a STARBUCKS kind of gal. My treat every morning of life is a run thru their drive-through for my sugar-free vanilla latte. What is funny then? I don't like coffee flavored anything! NOT candy, not ice cream...not cake...JUST coffee. I just can't make myself eat it...but that sounds like the perfect cure for someone that loves it...oh...yeah..I don't like flavored coffees either..I'm weird..I know! xo Diana

Linda Chapman said...

So glad to hear you are better! I, too, have been ill. Allergies due to the fungus from our den flooding. My go to food was frozen strawberry yogurt. I am still recovering so I am going to get some more right now.......

Glad to hear you're feeling better! Thought I might be coming down with something this morning, maybe I better get some ice cream just in case:@)

♥ Sonny ♥ said...

My daughter is going to love this cure.... so glad you're better.

LDH said...

Happy you are all better! I have never had Starbucks coffee ice-cream, but it is my favorite flavor (right up there with pistachio)

You proved it... this is good medicine :)

Barbara F. said...

I like coffee ice cream, my mother loved it, always ordered it at HoJo's when we went there.....when we had head colds growing up in my house we would have some ice cream and it would clear up the sinus! xo

Love Of Quilts said...

Good that your better and that you treated your self so well... with Ice Cream.

Theresa said...

Praise the Lord for the healing powers of Coffee Ice Cream! If there is one thing we know, BJ can't be sick! BIG HUGS and prayers! ME

Kelly said...

Wow! I wish everything could be cured with icecream then. I love ice cream and I love Starbucks, but have never tried Starbucks icecream. I bet it's good. Wish I could eat a cup right now! Glad you're feeling better. My hubby has a bad cold right now. Maybe, I'll go get him some of that icecream.

Ryan said...

Isn't that the cure for everything!

Linda @ A La Carte said...

I think that is the best cure I've heard of....coffee ice cream...YUM!

eileeninmd said...

It does sounds like a great cure, Ice cream for breakfast, lunch and dinner? I have goosebumps thinking about eating ice cream. I am so happy you are feeling better. Have a great week!

Bev said...

Oh, my - surely my kind of cure. Feed a cold, starve a fever or is it the opposite? I never can remember, so I feed it all. Stomach virus? Feed it. Back ache? Feed it. When in doubt - FEED IT.

So glad you're better. So wonderful to have a sweet husband. Truly blessed. Have one of my own. :)

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

Sounds good to me...except I can't eat sugar! boohoo! I have to find something sugar free...just not as good! lol

Farmhouse Style Living said...

I think I am going to run outside in the new snow nekkid just to get sick and try your cure! Who are we kidding?! Much easier to fake it and take the cure anyways!

Snap said...

Now this sounds like a true cure to me! I think I'll try it next time I have a virus!

A Garden of Threads said...

The perfect cure. Glad you feel better.

Lavender Cottage said...

You can have my share of ice-cream if it will help you feel better. I'm a frozen yogurt gal and it comes in some nifty flavours now too. :-)

Carol @ Always Thyme to Cook said...

Ice cream does the trick :) Glad you are better. I'd much rather have ice cream for breakfast than tea. Great cure!

laurie said...

now thats a cure for sure,, I'm trying that, I have a bit of a sore knee, I pretty sure this will fix me right up!

Al said...

That looks delicious, but I think it would make me feel more sick rather than better!

Rita May said...

every BODY know how to cure itself....just listen to it.
Sometimes it says "ice cream". Well done!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Coffee ice cream is my absolute favorite flavor! i haven't tried the Starbucks brands as yet ..must renmedy that! Glad you are feeling better!

Neabear said...

I had not heard of ice cream being a cure for sickness. But I guess there is always a first time! What happened to using chicken soup? I am glad you are better now. I just finished eating an ice cream bar. A 100 calorie one. Been watching my intake to keep going on my weightloss journey!

Take care and don't get sick again! And no, you can't use eating ice cream as an excuse to get sick! :)

Debbie said...

Well, I always knew that ice cream was a good cure fro what ails me.

It's just nice to be able to say that it's a prescription from Dr. BJ. That makes it all the more official.

(And I love what you said at the top of this about leaving unkind comments. Amen, sistah. You're not only Dr. BJ this morning, but Reverend BJ too.)

Sarah @ Modern Country Style said...

I am so totally with you - is there *anything* that this wouldn't cure???! I think not!!

Rettabug said...

So glad to hear you're feeling better, BJ. We've both been down with colds this week & my older sister is sick with the flu. Yuck! NOT fun! I may have to try your ice cream cure.

I posted a little note about your cupcake liner give away on my blog today. I'm heading to Michaels this morning, to see if I can find some, just in case I don't win! *wink*

Have a good week, Honey,
Hugs,
Rett

What a great healing power. I'm afraid I could overdose!
Glad you're feeling all better. Have a great week.

-chuckle- Now THAT is the most UNIQUE way of rationalizing a food craving, that I have ever heard!

Congratulations for thinking this up, my Dear.

:-))))))))))))

All kidding aside, I'm just so glad that it is over. Whatever was ailin' you, I mean.

Great cure.....I am an ice-cream-a-holic! LOL!
Have a wonderful day!

Shannon@Cozy Home Scenes said...

I hope you didn't receive any mean comments yourself. I agree with you that doing that is so mean. You are always such a funny, upbeat person and wouldn't deserve that. I am disappointed sometimes at some people in blogland who profess to be one way but behind the scenes, are not. I am a relatively new blogger and can't afford to lose readers by calling them out but it is disappointing. Someday when I get more confident, I may name names.

As for your miracle cure, you should win a prize!! I have never had that flavor but I can tell I've been missing something really good. I might not wait until I get sick, I think just for the health of mankind, I will run out and get this delicious cure. Thanks for the info and glad you are better.------ Shannon

Lorrie said...

I'm glad the cure worked! I'm not a fan of coffee, nor ice cream - I think my cure would be a bag of potato chips or a bowl of popcorn.

Julie Harward said...

(he he) I so agree...ice cream cures everything! I just want to tell you that you always inspire me, I so wish I could meet you, just love you! :D

Rita said...

Love your way of curing a virus; I admit I am also kind of addicted to ice cream, but I have to be careful. Hate to head freeze.
Rita

nannykim said...

Sounds like the cure to me!!! Only I would have put starbucks coffee in with it not, NOT the Dunkin donuts...Glad you are feeling better!

Pink Roses and Teacups said...

Oh sweet BJ!! Sorry to hear you were sick! Hope by now you are feeling better! I love coffee ice cream too!!

Hugs,
Debbie

Carla said...

How funny as soon as I read "red solo cup" I start laughing and singing ♫♪♪ ...red solo cup...i lift you up.... ♪♫♫! I heard that song for the first time yesterday.. I'm glad you feeling better and My husband and I both use that cure from time to time. LOL

Nancy said...

Loved your post! Now I have to quick go to the store! ;-)

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

Really? That was a strange virus...I usually want orange juice and chicken soup. I always forget to try the ice cream in coffee treat that you do...as if I need those calories!

I hope you didn't get a bad comment. I can't imagine anyone being hateful to you...let me at 'em!

Kathleen Grace said...

I'm not sure I would want to get better if I could eat nothing but ice cream BJ!

Beth said...

Hi BJ, Glad you are feeling better. That ice cream looks fabulous!
Hugs, Beth

Kathleen said...

sabri said...
