This week, Meghan McCarty brings us a prescription for how to spend your weekend if, like many of us, you've come down with a cold or flu. Dr. Neil Schachter at Mount Sinai Hospital wrote the book, "The Good Doctor's Guide to Cold and Flu." He recommends spending the weekend resting and taking in plenty of fluids - chicken noodle soup or tea with a squeeze of lemon and possibly some cognac.
If you're stuck at home with a cold this weekend, nothing goes better with a spot of tea and convalescence than a few episodes of the Masterpiece Classics British costume drama, "Downton Abbey."
