Jell-O and Tomato Soup!

The "bug" caught up with me today and I thought I was running fast for it not to catch me!
So when I am not feeling my best, strawberry Jell-O and tomato soup are my favorites!
The simple little comfort foods that helps me mend.
What do you like to eat when the bug has you down? I will be in the "swing" of things real soon! Love,
Maryjane

Chicken noodle soup, saltine crackers and popcicles always does the trick

Deb said...

oh forgot the grill cheese sandwich

Cora from Hidden Riches said...

So sorry to hear you are feeling under the weather. I love tomato soup, too, with a grilled cheese sandwich. If I'm REALLY under, feeling like roadkill, Cream of Wheat cereal is the fix all for me!

Hope you are feeling better soon!

Enjoy reading your blog...for me when I'm "under the weather" ...I like (sorry) boiled okra (with lots of butter) and hot Dr. Pepper..I promise I'm not from another planet..

Hi Maryjane
I just love your blog I truly do.
My comfort food is macaroni and tomato juice. I boil the macaroni, drain, add tons of butter to the pot, pour in the tomato juice, add tons of salt and stir the macaroni back in ...oh yum.
Hope you feel better soon.
Love You
Love Claudie

Margie said...

Oh dear, I'm sorry you are sick! I had it last month. I didn't have much of an appetite, because I couldn't taste much!

I usually stick to chicken noodle or chicken rice soup, cherry jell-o, and ginger ale. But this time I had a craving for cherry poptarts!

Get well soon!

Beehive Cottage said...

So sorry you aren't feeling well. Hope that dastardly little bug leaves soon. When I'm sick, it's Ritz crackers & sips of 7-Up.

Take care, Debbie

Get well soon! :)

I like chicken noodle soup and 7-Up when I'm not well. Also, hot jello water. Just add a couple of spoons of jello to really hot water. I like cherry the best. Soothing.
I hope you are feeling better soon!

Cori said...

I like chicken noodle soup and 7-Up when I'm feeling ucky. Also, hot jello water, usually cherry flavor. You just put a couple of spoons of jello in really hot water.
I hope you're feeling better soon!

Mumzie said...

We've been having jello lately. It's really refreshing and light. Hope you fell better soon. Hugs, Mumzie

Molly said...

Sorry you aren't feeling well. We have the flu over here. Yuck. I eat saltines and water. Sometimes toast and chicken noodle soup if I can hold it down. I pray you feel better soon.

Oh I hope you feel better soon! I like crackers and chicken soup when I am under the weather.

When I am ill, I send my husband to a Mexican restaurant for chicken soup. There is something about chicken soup with a touch of lime and jalapeno!

Diminutive Discoveries said...

Chocolate shakes... and not just ANY chocolate shake, it has to be the real deal; hand dipped with real ice cream. If not that, then chocolate milk. It's odd, too, because I don't normally like chocolate, but when I'm sick, nobody come between me and a chocolate shake!

Elyse said...

Hope you're feeling better! Tomato soup is one of life's great comfort foods. YuM! And of course, you can't go wrong with something like strawberry jello.

Sassy said...

I love homemade cream of potato soup and soda crackers.....sometimes though if my tummy is really upset just lemon popscicles....

Beverly said...

Oh you poor dear...I just read that you were sick....by now I hope that you are fine. I must say, though that if I had to eat tomato soup or jello...I would feel even sicker!! LOL...both are not my favorites. I vote for chicken soup!! And chocolate cake!!!!!!
