what does "for being just the right antidote to the idiot"? “We’ll handle it. And we’ll all handle gossips like Heather, too. I wonder if she’ll come to your next class here, at the cottage.” “If she does, no bitch-slapping.” “Spoilsport. Just for that, I’m taking a brownie for the road. If you need me, you call me. I’ll be home for the rest of the day. I’ve got to get some paperwork done before the kids get home.” “Thanks.” Abra moved in for a hug as they rose. “For being just the right antidote to the idiot.” When Maureen left, she went to her bedroom to change. Two brownies before noon made her feel just a little bit sick, but she’d get over it. And once she finished work for the day, she was going to Eli. For better or worse.

She's comparing Maureen to an antidote, something that counteracts poison. After the stress of dealing with the idiot (Heather?), Maureen made Abra feel better.
