Chicken Noodle Soup, Salad Bento, and Sandwich

Mr. P is sick. For the strangest reasons, whenever he gets sick, he is 10 times worse than lil P or myself. Lil P got sick 2 weeks ago, only lasted 4-5 days, and I had a sore throat and was able to fight it off in just a few days. Mr. P on the other hand, he's been sick since Monday, and it's progressively getting worse. I think part of the reason he he isn't trying to fight it off. I tried to give him extra vitamins and zinc but maybe he just has a far worse immune system than lil P and I. (or that I take care of lil P more than him?!)

So I made him chicken noodle soup.

small bunch of spaghetti noodles (break in halves)
1/2 cup frozen peas and carrots (defrost and pureed)
1 chicken breast (cut in cubes)
1/2 cup of chopped cabbage
1 can of chicken broth
dash of salt and pepper

Pour the can of chicken broth in a pot, add in spaghetti noodles, veggie purees, chicken breast, and choped cabbage and let simmer until noodles are cooked through, about 20 minutes. Add in salt and pepper to taste.

Since I couldn't spend much time with Mr. P due to his cold, I decided to make a no-cook bento for my sister who works a block down my office. Turkey salad with olives, tomatoes, cheese, and croutons with apples and strawberries.

Lastly, I decided to make lil P a small sandwich with chips for his snack for school. It was a last minute idea so...I have no clue what this is supposed to be. I guess I'll just call him "the little monster" haha...


  1. The home cooked chicken noodle soup looks so good. And the fresh salad bento will surely brightened up your sister's day! :)

  2. Thanks KidsDreamWork! Mr. P ate all of the soup and my sister enjoyed the salad!
