Comfort food

For the past 10 days I've been sick. OK...ok...I am not expecting anyone to shed a tear. It is just that I never ever get sick. Seriously! I haven't had a cold or the flu in over 10 years. Not even so much as a sniffle.

Well, all of that changed about 10 days ago when I got the grand-daddy of all colds/sinus infections...whatever. YUCKY POO! I've felt horrible.

Today I needed something for supper that was comfort food. Something to just feel better. I'm tired of jello and noodle soup. So for tonight's supper I made us some good, old fashioned Chicken and Dumplings. Mmmmmmm mmmmmm good!

I am not sure my photo does it justice since this is what was left over and scrapped from the bottom of the pot. But it sure was tastey!

So tell me. When you aren't feeling well, what is the best homecooked "medicine" that makes you feel a bit better? This "bug" of mine has gone on for ten days and at its end. Last week I wasn't even up for cooking. But ya know? Sometimes the simple fixin's are the best medicine.

Ah ahhhhh chew! I'm getting better, but I think I have a day or two left of this nastiness in me! Hopefully it will be another 10 - 15 years before I catch it again.

Hope you all are feeling well!


  1. Mmmmm....that looks delicious Jennifer! I sure hope you start feeling better soon! I miss your posts! My favorite comfort food when sick is: Liptons Chicken noodle soup....and when I have a really sore throat, popsicles! How lame! lol

  2. I am so sorry you have been feeling like crap. That stinks.
    On the other hand your chicken and dumplings look delish. Can you send me some? My mom used to make the best. I usually go for a vanilla shake from McD's and grilled cheese is always good. {{{get well soon}}}

  3. You poor thing! So sorry to hear you've been sick, but thankfully you don't get sick very often! Your chicken and dumplinds looks DELICIOUS! When I had my ankle surgery a few weeks ago, one of my dear friends brought over chicken and dumplings and it was the BEST comfort food EVER! Hope you're feeling better already! Hugs & Smiles, Pam :)

  4. So sorry you've been sick. It's been going around here, too. Thankfully, I just got a touch, but my guys both got very sick. You make some nice looking chicken and dumplings. The other comfort foods for me are warm pudding or warm rice custard.

  5. Aaawww, bless your heart, I'm glad to hear that you're on the mend. My favourite comfort foods are homemade mac and cheese (with LOADS of gooey cheese!) and homemade fruit cobblers...and ICE CREAM!

  6. I hope you are better Jennifer.

  7. Sorry you've been sick. I hope you're feeling better now! I LOVE Chicken and Dumplings, and if I had known you were making some, I would have rushed right over!!!!

  8. When I was a child, my mom always made potato soup when we were sick. So I still think of that as my "get well food"!

    Hope you're feeling better soon!
