As I write this on Tuesday, my 4 year old is home sick from school. She's had a low grade fever for a few days now, and I'm really hoping she shakes this bug soon. (Yes, if she doesn't, I'll take her in to see her dr.)
Her throat's been sore, her appetite is lessened, and her whining has been a little increased, so we've been trying to feed her nice, soft foods that she likes. Which has been rather hit or miss - she even turned down homemade noodles from chicken soup.
It got me thinking about "sickie foods." You know, the ones you crave when you're feeling under the weather. Maybe it's something your mom only gave you when you were sick, or good ol' fashioned chicken soup, or something spicy to clear out your sinuses... For me, it's Mrs. Grass's Chicken Noodle Soup (with golden nugget!). It's nice and warm, the noodles are small and soft (no hard chewing!), and you can put it in a mug and curl up on the couch under some blankets. I try to keep some on hand just in case.
How about you? What's your favorite sickie food?
