I've got the flu. Nothing dramatic about that -- judging from my Facebook feed, half of America does, too. But it got me thinking: When you're feeling rotten -- runny nose, watery eyes, constant hacking -- what food makes you feel better?
I've got a couple of favorites of my own, depending on the meal and just how rotten I'm feeling. When I'm at my worst, and this may be hard to believe, I really don't care what I'm eating. Seriously. I'll make a cup of tea with Meyer lemon slices, honey and hot water (and if I'm REALLY rocky, I'll pull my grandpa's trick and add a slug of bourbon).
