Chicago fall is finally here -- but so is cold/flu season. What is your favorite comfort food when you're sick?
I definitely don't go for the spicy foods when I'm sick, but chicken noodle soup is a good stand by. Some hot tea with lemon and honey also works.
I always go for any kind of hot soup. You can't beat Chicken Noodle soup on a cold day.
When I'm sick, I like to pick up extra spicy Tom Yum soup from the thai restaurant down the street. The spices, broth and cilantro just seem to open up my sinuses and make me feel better. When my husband is sick, I usually make a big batch of homemade chicken soup or beef broth that he can sip on whenever he needs to warm up.
