Chicken noodle soup to the rescue!! My girls were sick for a couple days of tummy aches, fever and cough and what a mommy to do in such a case? Besides making some ginger brown sugar tea, I also cooked them their comfort chicken noodle soup! My Asian girls don't like the comfort porridge when Asian eat when they were sick, instead they prefer the American comfort food when they were sick. So, I would make sure I add in all the healing properties ingredients such as ginger, garlic, onion, cabbage and carrot! I minced or diced it finely so that they wouldn't notice and would just eat it.
I only had spaghetti in my pantry instead of other kind of pasta, hence I torn those into 1 inch strips and made it more fun for them to eat. They enjoyed every bit of it! This would make a great lunch box for their school as well.
