Caught Up In The Snoutbreak

Ok. I’m not sure that I actually have Swine Flu. In fact, I’m pretty sure that I don’t have it. I have been sick for about a week though with a few of the symptoms (sore throat, aches, cough, etc.)

But whatever happened to just having a cold? Is it possible that I just have a sore throat? Every time I mention to someone that I’m sick, they insist that I have H1N1. Do I have to have Swine Flu? Maybe I’m just in denial…

Oh well, the point of this post is to say that I was in no mood to write an entire post today.

So, instead, I will post a photo of Tipsy who I caught playing dead over the weekend.

And if you happen to be sick and browsing through the Macheesmo archives looking for a good recipe to make that will instantly cure you (more or less), I think it’s a three way tie between:

Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

Spinach Stracciatelle

Chicken and Dumplings

Chicken and Dumplings!

Chicken and Dumplings!

Stay healthy people!

  1. Hope it’s not the swine flu! Working in a pharmacy, it’s like the plague has hit and every other person is freaking out. I say, just take a deep breath, drink some Theraflu, and get better! =)

  2. I hope you feel better!
    I don’t know why everyone automatically assumes swine flu though. Any time someone is out of work for a day – even if its a planned day off!!- they automatically are sick with swine flu and everyone starts freaking out and avoiding their desk like the plague.

  3. I hope you feel better real soon. You can boost your immune system by taking Vitamin C and E together every day. My dentist suggested to me that combination could help when I kept getting a recurring oral infection.

    I love chicken and noodles when I do get a cold or flu. It actually helps your system to recover faster.

  4. I had the swine flu and it sucked. Alternating tylenol and motrin with break the fever and lots and lots of bacon will kill the flu. Hopefully you will feel better soon.

  5. Nick. First hope you feeling better soon

    Secondly, you’re tooooo much. Sick and still
    Giving us recipies.
    Your dumpling Rec looked dark like you added
    Some Maggie which I use im my soup that
    I got from My Oma. (grandmother German actually my
    Mother in law). She was a delic cook, from chic soup & soft matzah balls to die for cheese pie

    I keep on skin. Shar, my 30 year wife likes
    Turkey better. So usually use that, though I save
    Breasts and cook them sep. Just first time did
    Them on the gas BBQ. Came out great. Cooked. Pretty
    Quick too

    thanks to stef, i’m glad she convinced me to get a 16 qt. pot,its great

    Also, thought you were going to give us a homemade noodle
    recp though that would be too timely, some day i want to try some fresh pasta

    oh well…..feel better soon

  6. hope you are feeling better. My hypochondriac boyfriend was convinced he had swine flu a few weeks ago, turns out he actually had a case of good old bronchitis. There are other sicknesses out there people!

    And we actually made some Stracciatelle when he was sick, I think this is the new chicken noodle soup in our house.
