Our Favorite Sick Day Meal


When I was a wee little girl, my Mom always made me the same soup when I was sick. I remember being off at college, and making the soup for myself when I was under the weather. When I married my hubby- guess what... yep, he got the very same soup when he was sick. See where this is going?

There is something so incredibly comforting about recipes and traditions that have been passed down from generation to generation. It isn't just the food itself, but all of the loving memories that are associated with my favorite sick day meal. Ya feel me?

Now my kids enjoy this recipe that has been circulating in our family for years and I'd love to share it with you! It is so ridiculously easy and yummy that it will blow your mind. (Never mind the sodium content, heh heh)




Tomato Consumme Soup
1 can of Tomato Soup
1 can of Beef Consumme Soup


Directions: Add both soups to a small saucepan. Heat over the stove on low heat, stirring occasionally until warm.


Favorite add ons: shredded cheese, bacon, Goldfish, Mini-Saltines, fresh ground pepper



Oh, and serve with a yummy grilled cheese sandwich for dipping, of course! I always try to use a nice, big, crusty loaf of French bread for our grilled cheese sandwiches...




PERFECT for dipping!



I am a SUCKER for a Grilled Cheese Sandwich & Tomato Soup! Even if I visit a fancy schmancy restaurant with amazing meats and fish~ if I see this on the menu, I will order it EVERY time! It is my absolute favorite.

You guys should TOTALLY try out this delicious and EASY meal the next time you or your loved ones are under the weather. It is also PERFECT for a cold and rainy day. You will not be disappointed!

Misty said...

I would seriously stock up on Mucinex, kleenex, cough drops and a good magazine! LOL

Janet said...

I would use it to pay for the ever rising costs of our prescriptions.

Susan said...

I would just use it for my typical toiletry needs...TP, kleenex, meds. I'm on a strict budget for 2013, so I'd try to stick to normal spending. Except maybe I'd treat myself to a new bottle or 2 of Essie nail polish :)

Melissa said...

I would use it to buy allergy meds for my son as well as toilet paper, shampoo, laundry detergent, and other necessities. I'm an unemployed single mother so it would sure help out!

Yum! Cannot go wrong with BACON and SOUP together!!! Love to make bacon (NO Bacon Bits; that is NOT bacon) to top our homemade potato soup with... yum!

If I had $100 GC I have no idea!!! Makeup, gifts for people, gum?! Our CVS has lots of fun goodies!

I love your blog! I went to Baylor and used to live in Mansfield, so I recognize and love so many of the places you write about.

I would use the CVS gift card for RX meds. I am so blessed to stay home with my kids now, but that means we have private health insurance, and it's NOT good. We have a high RX deductible for each family member, that doesn't get met until close to the end of the year. A recent case of pink eye cost me $75 plus a doctor's visit. OUCH!

I'd start with some of the OTC meds we've run out of and then probably head for the shampoo and soaps. After than, one can never have enough toilet tissue stocked up. I also love my CVS's candy section... tough choices here! :-) Katharina angelsandmusic[at]gmail[dot]com
