What do you cook when everyone in your house is sick?

Tonight my dh is sick so I am just making hot dogs and fries. My dd seems to be excited though! It is a easy and fun dinner she can help with... well at least use a lot of ketchup with.

  • I always make miso soup when someone is sick
    Morning miso
    2 cups veg. broth
    2 cups hot water
    4 Tbsp. miso
    1 tsp. fresh ginger root, grated
    1/2 cup diced firm tofu
    3 Tbsp. thinly sliced scallion greens
    1/2 cup thinly sliced mushrooms
    I have substituted onion for the scallions, and left out the mushrooms. I have also added some thinly sliced chinese cabbage, because I happened to have it.)

    Pour the veg. broth and 1 cup of water into medium saucepan. In separate bowl, dissolve the miso in the remaining 1 cup water. Mix well and add to saucepan. Add the ginger root and mushrooms and heat until simmering (about 5 minutes). Remove from heat and stir in
    the tofu and scallions. (If adding other veg. like onion or cabbage, you'll want to simmer until they are tender before adding tofu.)

  • If we are ALL sick..and thats including me..I don't cook,lol. Ill order some delivery from the chinese restaraunt of WonTon soup and eggrolls.
    If everyone else is sick and I'm not..I'll make a big ol pot of old fashioned chicken noodle soup.
    When I'm the only one sick...I'm lucky if I get a bag of Ramen Noodles,LOL.

  • In the summer when it's hot, I hate to eat soup. I would say toast, apple sauce, warm chicken noodle if they want it. Jello.

  • If everyon else was sick...I would probably fix a quick pasta dish with veggies in it.

  • It depends what they all want - as much as I'm not a short-order cook, when someone isn't feeling well I do kind of cater to them (within reason).

  • I usually make a big pot of vegetable soup and homemade biscuits, maybe some custard or Jell-O.
    That miso soup up there looks fabulous...
