I am sick. Maybe it is a cold with massive chest involvement or maybe bronchitis. No matter the diagnosis, I still found myself hungry late last night when the Nyquil decided not to work.
I did not want something heavy but I wanted it to be easy. I wanted toast but naturally, the only bread we had was frozen. Ugh.
I hit the pantry and then scoped out the miscellaneous veggies in the crisper. To be honest, I did not whisk the liquids and the mustard together but I told you to below….if you feel like it. If you are sick, don’t bother. If you are too sick to make this, just heat up some soup but trust me, this is good and full of nutrients.
