Days 7/8/9: Feeding a Cold

Well, there was no escaping the cold/flu, this time around.

When you are sick, Vitamin Water tends to taste better than food.

That is quite possibly the simplest soup ever. I cooked 1/2 cup of basmati rice. Then I added a Rapunzel bouillon cube, and 2 or so cups of water to the pan. After it came to a boil, it was soup! If I would have felt better, I would have added some vegetables and even some butter beans. I also considered making brown basmati rice, but I wouldn’t have stayed awake through it’s cooking time, so I opted for the done-in-15 minutes white basmati.

Someone went to the store and came home with these. They were actually perfect to eat because of their simple ingredients and light crunch. They are $7/box, but a nice treat. They are good in that “grocery store cookie” kind of way.

sickchips

Not my proudest decision, but for whatever reason, these are the sick-person-food of choice, in this house. They essentially dissolve in your mouth, which is perfect folks stuck in an illness-induced state of zoning. That would be, perfect for me.

The above neon occurrence is what I deemed “Mock Sweet Potatoes”, which is actually fitting since our grocery isn’t currently stocking them. It is about 1/2 cup of baby carrots, boiled with a chopped, medium-sized potato. I pureed it in the food processor, and it was dinner! And lunch. And breakfast the next day.

By the third morning I felt like “real” food, and was compelled by this post about English muffins. I promptly made the muffins, and drank a kombucha (my medicine) to my health. I figured that the kombucha would whip my immune system back into shape.

Check here for the recipe. I used rice flour in place of the sorghum and millet in place of the teff. Simple and satisfying. I can’t wait to experiment with different flour combinations. English muffins in less than an hour?! Yeah.
