Sickness Strikes the Family

It's virus central here at Casa Rebecca. Vinny had a temperature of 103.5ºF and spent most of the day moaning yesterday. We took him to the doctor and while he did not have strep, he did have a nasty sore throat. But today he bounced back and is doing fine, just in time for me to feel miserable. I'll probably be fine by tomorrow, just in time for Jeff to get it.

There are some foods that I crave when I'm sick. A big one for me is canned fruit with cottage cheese. The most comforting is canned plums, but I have to admit, I have a weakness for canned peaches and canned pears too. In fact, I just snarfed down a can of peaches that was rightfully Vinny's. Jeff always needs a grilled cheese sandwich when he's sick.

What's your comfort food?

Hope you feel better soon!

I like OJ with ginger ale in it when I'm sick, and herbal tea with honey.

Unless I've been puking, in which case just warm water with a little honey is like ambrosia!
