Feed Your Cold Carnitas

I fed a cold carnitas this weekend. I realize that chicken noodle soup would seem like the more sensible option, but I’m a little unconventional.

I followed Deb’s suggestions and went all out, making the carnitas, spicy slaw, homemade corn tortillas, and arroz con leche for dessert. And yeah, I know a dairy-laden dessert was probably not the best dish to serve a man with a cold. What is that they say about hindsight again?

Truth be told, I was already planning on going through the three hour process to make carnitas on my Friday off from school and had invited Jeremy over for the occasion before I knew he was feeling a little under the weather. I had him come over anyway. We’d swap out the Pacificos for a hot toddy or two and boost our immune systems with a little shredded, juicy pork goodness. I’m not exaggerating when I say it was the best three hours I’ve spent in a long time. It’s making my mouth water just thinking about it and I think I may have locked in the title for “Best Daughter Ever” by bringing my dad some of the leftovers. Plus, Jeremy’s on the mend and I can’t help but think it’s because of the carnitas. So if you catch what’s been going around, maybe you should feed your cold some carnitas too.

    Isn’t it feed a cold, starve a fever?

    I think spicy, yummy food it perfect during a cold! If it makes your nose run during regular, non-ill times, then think of all the good it will do when everything is stuffed up! (Not to be gross or anything…)
