Sick Eats…..

After I finished up work, picked up my car I came home to a quick dinner a la The Husband. He put together the perfect “sicky” meal for me with what we had in the house. I think that is one way you know you are sick – when soup sounds good and it’s 90+ degrees outside! He gets total brownie points for not only making dinner but taking pictures too - LOVE him!

Progresso Hearty Chicken with Rotini Pasta – I ate the WHOLE can which is rare. I am not a big canned soup fan, but, suddenly I was starved when I sat down.


With some Bunny LOVE for crunch – Annie’s Organic Buttery Bunnies (think like Ritz crackers but in a cuter shape with good ingredients and fun to eat!)


With 100% Vitamin C Apple Juice to help fight my cold!


After this, I went to bed and slept and slept and slept. I think my body really needed that much sleep to break my 101 degree fever. I hate fevers because they leave you so achy and just plain ugh!

After 16 hours of sleep, I woke up starving and craving carbs. I started off with my Neti Pot. At first my nose refused to cooperate, but, it worked eventually and I really think it is helping to clear my sinuses. I fueled my body with what it was craving.

Cream of Wheat with a little whipped butter and brown sugar.


A piece of The Husband’s Whole Grain White Bread with whipped butter because I was too lazy to go to the other freezer in the garage to get my bread.


With some cold fighting Emergen-C (LOVE this stuff!), Organic Echinacea Tea plus a multi-vitamin.


And lots of fluids.


Yes I used a bottle of water because I don’t want to contaminate my Nathan or SIGG bottles with my sick germs. One time is, ok, right?!

Believe it or not, this actually took all my energy to make. Now I am off to sleep more because I HAVE to pack tonight for our trip tomorrow. Cold, cold, please go away and don’t come again any other day!

Catch you all later ~ not sure If I’ll start my vacation posts next or what not. I have some great guest posters lined up for you all starting tomorrow along with a few posts by me. I hope to pop in here and there to share some of our vegas stuff, but, if not, I’ll give you a full recap when we get back.

Happy Hump Day!
