What if you don't even want to get out of bed?
You're under the weather, the mizz'ble friggin' won't-it-ever-cease weather, and you have to eat.
Well. So I invaded the earthquake supplies. Cranky did, actually. (God forbid we should ever both be sick at the same time.) He pulled out a can of Chicken NoodleO's, a "fun" take on the classic chicken noodle. Kinda seemed like Cheerios Soup there for the first couple of minutes.
It wasn't bad; I might even prefer it to the old-fashioned strand noodles.
But health food it is not. The can is supposed to make "about 2.5" servings. Each serving is 1/2 cup! (Update: I think that means 1/2 cup of the condensed slop.) That's not enough food for a sick adult. So I ate the entire amount, a total of about 20 ounces of reconstituted soup.
And that means I just bathed my internal organs in 2,375 mg. of sodium. That is literally 100% of my RDA.
Hey, didja see on the news, Dick Cheney got booed on the ballfield today.
Ahhh. That made me feel better.
