My hubby was scheduled to leave for Phoenix yesterday morning for his yearly Ops Review with all the other company managers. However, he woke up sick to his tummy at 2:20 AM and was out for the count all day. My oldest child came down at 4AM complaining of a sore stomach as well so I thought for sure we were in for a bad day. The flu and stomach virus have been going around our town so badly that one local preschool actually CLOSED for the remainder of the week! And I was already on heightened alert having just had Spencer's party with a bunch of toddlers in a local playroom. Fortunately, Harrison was fine - turns out the little turkey was just hungry - but I cancelled a play date and kept the hubby holed up in the bedroom.
After disinfecting anything and everything my hubby had even glanced at, I ran to the supermarket for reinforcements. I had to laugh when the baggie boy glanced at my purchases and simply said, "uh-oh".
Usually, when grown ups are down for the count, I love to prepare homemade chicken noodle soup from Barefoot Contessa Family Style. It is so comforting and I make it even easier with a rotisserie chicken and store bought, low sodium chicken broth. You can find the recipe here:
Here's hoping you have a healthy day!
