Sick Cravings

I have a lot of sick cravings like bags and bags of chocolate covered peanut butter and mounds of chips and dip. But what I really mean is . . ..what do you crave when you are sick? Obviously, you probably do not crave much when your head is stuffed down inside the porcelain throne with stomach issues. But, when you have a run of the mill cold or even the after-effects of the flu, what do you crave?

Personally, my mom, although incredible in many other areas, was not a homemade chicken soup kind of girl. She specialized in Campbell's Chicken Noodle and Ocean Spray Cran Apple Juice. So, that's what I crave when I am sick.

This past week, my girl and I were honored guests of Mr. Flu Bug. My hubby managed to escape him and was nominated as doctor, cook and fetcher to my daughter and I while we visited with Mr. Flu. Prince Charming made many trips to El Kroger to make sure that our habitat was well equipped. While I am better, my girl still has fever and is on the mend. I wonder what she is going to crave when she is an adult and gets sick. Probably M & M's .. .just kidding, I don't feed her that when she is sick! :()

So what do you crave when you are sick? Inquiring minds wanna know.

I agree. There's nothing I want more than chicken noodle soup when I'm sick - especially homemade chicken noodle soup! (Although I usually settle for Campbell's.)

Hope everyone is feeling better!
