Meal planning check in: week ending 2/5

This week is a bit tough because right now my kids + husband are sick, so I need to think of sick-friendly foods.  Obviously, chicken soup is at the top of the list.  I'm planning on making butternut squash soup tonight because I picked up a butternut squash at the market, and I also need to get some tofu and maybe try the noodles + tofu with peanut sauce left in the comments from the earlier meal planning post.  In general, I want to take inventory of my pantry/freezer and try to use up what we have.

Easier said than done?  I hope not.

Please drop me a note in the comment box with your favorite food to eat while you're sick.  Help me feed my family!

  1. It's all about the comfort foods - soup (pretty much any kind, but not too spicy), pasta, grilled cheese, rice... Hmm, it seems that for me, comfort foods align with carbohydrates. Nothing to crispy or crunchy if I have a sore throat.

    I also drink a lot of tea when I'm sick.
