Colds, Coughs, Sniffles, Flu and more OH MY. I’m 100% sure that all parents fear those words. There’s nothing worse than when it hits your house. It starts with one person, spreads to a sibling and soon enough every one in the family has it and is miserable. I was lucky enough this year to get sick on vacation (no really, I count myself lucky) because I was at my parents house. They could help with the kiddos, make the food and I got to just get better. But unfortunately, most of the time, that is not the case. When a parent gets sick they are usually required to still be “Mom” or “Dad”; keeping the house in order (or at least from falling down). But I think the worst is that they still have to feed the family. They have to make sure that nobody starves.
I try to be able to help any neighbors or friends that I know are sick. Trying to ease any part of their load when sick. Like dinner….taking them some dinner is a simple way that you can help that Mom or Dad who’s not feeling well. So today I thought I’d share a yummy recipe that is perfect for a sick day (or just a really cold day). And if you have some leftover turkey from Thanksgiving that you froze, this is a perfect way to use it up! If you don’t have turkey it is amazing with cooked chicken as well.
One of the other worst parts of getting sick, IMO, is when you don’t have the “supplies” that you need. Have you ever been sick and completely run out of Kleenex? I’m sorry, but it’s just not the same when you have to settle to have the TP roll next to you. I would much rather have my box of Kleenex, and my piles high of used tissues!
I keep on hand these square boxes of Kleenex tissues, which are a must in my family but also a great gift to accompany the soup when I deliver to a neighbor. And of course I can’t just take blank box…so I made these printables that I tie on top with some festive ribbon to take to my sick neighbor/friend.
Make sure to download my “Sick?” printable for the next time you need a quick gift to help out someone who’s under the weather.
Oh, and there’s also a $1 off Kleenex coupon that you can use while shopping at Target. Print it twice and save while you stock up this sick season.
