One of my twins is home sick today with a horrible cough and low grade temperature. Being sick has not bothered his appetite in the least. He asked for my Microwave Pancakes for breakfast. A couple hours later and he was asking for soup. While he was eating his soup, he asked for a milkshake. If the adage; starve a fever, feed a cold, holds true…he’s got a cold!
