Have been feeling a bit under the weather these past few days.

A bowl of hot chicken noodle soup really does make you feel a bit better.

But here’s a heads up. Those little packets of saltine crackers wrapped in cellophane? Despite the packaging, they have a shelf life. They do get stale – and they do go bad. And when they’ve reached the point of bad, they smell. Foul.

Here’s to good health – and fresh crackers.


(And, hey, youngest son – if you’re taking a break and reading this, hope you’re feeling better. I think you got it worse than I did.)

Stale crackers? I had no idea they would smell...my solution would have been to just crumble them up and dump them in the soup but then you'd have had smelly soup. Yuck!!! Hope you are feeling better!!

Hope you're feelin' better already.

Crackers: we go through a big box of crackers about every two weeks. We love saltines around here!

Foul-smelling crackers? Eeeeew.

I hope you're feeling better.

A bowl of hot soup is good for your health, and good for the soul.

But yeah, the crackers? I found that out the hard way once too.

*ffphtt*

Chicken noodle soup! I love it!

The girls and I had a bowl of it in the Toronto airport during our long flight delay . . . the soup was mediocre, but the crackers were fresh!

Hope you are feeling better soon. Wish that I could send you a spring bouquet.

Sorry you're both feeling bad...and sorry your saltines are yucky too....I love those crackers.

I hope you feel better! I agree about the chicken soup and crackers. Nothing is worse than having the soup ready and finding out the crackers are stale....yuck.

Take care of yourself. Stay warm, drink lots of liquids and catch up on some really good books!

It must have been whatever oil was used in those crackers that went rancid. Blech. And already you, with little appetite, how off-putting. If it's any consolation, my drek lasted just about a week. But it was drek-ful while it lasted. Hot baths with epsom salts. Lots of Vitamin C and sleep, sleep, sleep. {{{sending healing vibes}}}
