Typical October weather (95 one day, 70 and rainy a few days later) coupled with interrupted sleep has led to a bunch of sickies in my house. So, it is comfort food time!
For me it is Grandma Ruth’s Sick Soup (potato and leek) and hot Dr. Pepper with lemon. I know that last one sounds bizarre, but that’s what Ma’am used to make me when I was sick as a kid. She’d pour a can of Dr. Pepper into a pot on the stove with a few slices of lemon and bring it to a boil. The warm syrupy liquid always soothed my throat and the shot of citrusy vitamin C was a bonus.
J has been living on noodles. He found the hidden bag of Halloween shaped pasta colored with tomato paste and cuttlefish(!) that Ma’am had bought for him and I was planning on using for crafts. Topped with some Parmesan cheese and that’s pretty much all he’s had for dinner for three nights in a row. Hey, he’s eating without whining, I am not arguing!
Daddy’s choice is anything quick and easy that won’t scratch his throat. He took one look at the pasta, rolled his eyes and just said “No”. Now, I am pretty much leaving him to his own devices unless he asks for something special.
I am ready for a nap, so I am going to keep this entry short.
Until next time, happy eating.
