When You're Sick

What do you crave when you're under the weather? Nothing, greasy food, mom's homemade soup? Nope not me-I have expensive "sick person" taste. I want the food from the great restaurants that are no where near my house and don't deliver, but there's always the pizza place down the street that has gourmet style pizza and delivers. I've been thinking about this today-because we all woke up under the weather-my husband has convinced me it's strep throat so I have a Drs appt in about an hour, but I was also thinking about dinner. I have absolutely no motivation to cook, let a lone even think of a meal idea, so now I am thinking about where we will order dinner from.

Somehow I think I associate this good food with automatically feeling better, or maybe it's my way of trying to pamper myself....heck I'm weird I know. Most people don't have a taste for anything while sick-nope I want Indian food. Yet is it a waste to spend the money on great food since we don't feel good, or is it money well spent in hopes that it will comfort us, give us a bit of time to relax and enjoy it.

  1. Ick. Hope you're better soon.
    I don't think I crave food much when I have a virus. Just soup and tea. Preferrably made by someone other than myself.

  2. If you're sick, you deserve some good tasting food if it makes you feel better :) Hope it's not strep!
