Comfort food

I have been down and out with a bad case of bronchitis.

So instead of pleating dumplings in Shanghai with my mom, nephews and friends as planned,
I am bedridden.

Not sleeping.

Not hungry.

But feed a cold, starve a fever?

Here in Italy, I have adapted to what Italians feed a cold.

Instead of hot tea with honey, hot milk.

Instead of chicken soup, beef broth with Pastina!

I actually slept some last night and can almost breathe so today here is my lunch.

stelline in brodo

mele cotte

pavesini cookies, lighter than air.

Hope I feel better soon, fall food is my favorite!


  1. Mele cotte, in my case diced, with white wine, a bit of sugar and lots of cinnamon, are a wonderful food when you are in perfect health too! YUM!

  2. I hope you feel better soon! L
