Of course, I didn't come to such knowledge until, like, the day before my boys were over a stomach virus (plague) that hung around for over two weeks.
Isn't that always the way it goes?
As cool as this recipe is to have in my back pocket, I'm SO hoping we don't get to be close chums any time soon.
Wretched stomach bugs. There are just some things I never envisioned myself doing at 3 AM pre-motherhood and we'll just leave it at that.
Oh, I can't be a grump when my little sickie is so cute and happy-go-lucky.
PS: Lizards L-O-V-E this stuff.
Heat 2 quarts of water in a large pot. Whisk in 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon baking soda, 7 tab lespoons sugar (or honey for kids over a year old), and 2 tablespoons flavored gelatin (optional, but my 4-year-old was unlikely to drink it otherwise). When everything is dissolved, refrigerate and serve cold (your kids might like it warm, but we didn't try it).
