sick days

Schatzi: Sorry about the downtime, folks, but I was on the verge of pneumonia for a week or so, and Eli had to take care of me. And by “take care of me,” I mean, “feed me delicious things so I didn’t die.” So in between dosing me with drugs and making me juice, Eli prepared some comfort foods for the sickie.

Eli\'s Chicken and Noodles

Eli's Chicken & Noodles

First up is his own comfort food, Chicken and Noodles, which is essentially a chicken noodle soup without much broth, but what a chicken noodle dish it was! Garlicky and flavorful, it had the best chicken flavor of any commercial or homemade chicken noodle dish I have ever tasted.

Gruyere Souffle

A personal favorite of mine is Cheese Soufflé, which is made in my family for Christmas morning breakfast, and occasionally my mother would make it for me as a rare treat. We didn’t have her recipes, so he tried Alton Brown’s, using Gruyere instead of Cheddar at my behest. While I think Eli did a great job on his first soufflé, it wasn’t quite as good as my mother’s, so I guess he’ll have to try her recipe next!

Bacon Sausage Biscuits

Bacon Sausage Pigs in a Blanket

A breakfast treat came in the form of pigs in a blanket made from bacon sausage and homemade biscuit dough. These were amazing both fresh from the oven and reheated the next day.

Pineapple Upside Down Cake

And finally, since I wasn’t up to baking any cakes, Eli made me a Pineapple Upside Down Cake, a nostalgic favorite of ours—and an amazing first try! I’ll try to persuade him to post the recipe this week.
