Sick Day

So I had a sick day yesterday. Actually, it was more of a violently-ill-for-2-hours kind of day. A sore stomach crept up on my all of a sudden around 10:30AM - I thought I was hungry, so I had some juice & a handful of almonds. Next thing I know, I'm hugging the toilet bowl. Every half hour or so... Ugh. There's no way I can finish the rest of that juice carton now!

Of course I was feeling miserable, so I emailed Pat to let him know. He came home at lunch time - what a sweetheart. He cuddled with me in bed until I fell asleep - then he made me some chicken noodle soup when I woke up 3 hours later. I felt much better after that, so I thought I'd share his miraculous-instant-cure recipe.

Healing Chicken Noodle Soup

Ingredients:

4 cups water
1 satchet of Lipton chicken noodle soup
1 cup Minute rice

Methods:

1. Boil water.
2. Whisk soup mix & rice into boiling water. Turn down heat & let simmer for 5 minutes.

Enjoy & feel better! Honestly, nothing tastes better when you're sick!

What's your favourite at-home remedy when you're sick?

(And yes, I realize this sounds like morning sickness - at least 4 people have told me I might be pregnant... HA! Real funny guys! Seriously though, I'm on the pill & bled last week, so I'm pretty sure it's only a stomach virus. Let's see what happens this morning...)

Bummer, honey. Sure hope you are feeling better today. Hopefully, it was just something you ate.
