There is a fever in our home again. Everyone has been very weak and tired lately. It’s so weird that we have just caught the fever a month ago and now we are in the same position again.
Our friends warned about the viral outbreak in the city so we need to very careful in public places and try avoiding eating out.
Today I decided to cook something that increase immunity and help us fight the fever. I know exactly what to make. Chicken with black pepper and celery was something we ate since childhood while fighting cold.

It is not easy to feed sick people. They become so picky and really don’t wanna eat anything. I’m glad they finished this because I know this dish is so healthy and good for them.
When someone in your family’s unwell, what’s special food you usually prepare for them? Do you get upset when it is so difficult to feed them?
Have a healthy day,
