I will be away from the blog for the next few days since I have to get a chemotherapy treatment and then on 07 March I’ll be receiving an infusion of the experimental drug. First of all, I hope that you will behave during my absence…and you know who you are! (warm smile)
Secondly, I want to talk about the subject of this post – Comfort Foods. Regular reader “Okie Homestay” who has some Saudis staying at their home wanted some advice. Two of the Saudis are under the weather. What are some of the Saudi ‘Comfort Foods’ that they may like while they are feeling poorly.
I can speak for my Saudi family on what they preferred and encourage other Saudis to share too.
If the ailment is something like flu, then just like anywhere it is most important to stay hydrated while receiving nutrients. Lentil soup is a favorite among my Saudi family. Chicken soup is also a welcome second. Fresh fruit juices also help an ailing Saudi towards feeling better.
When a Saudi is not feeling well, it is probably best to avoid Saudi kawa (coffee) and instead, serve piping hot Saudi tea.
Last but not least, my husband would like to snack upon warm Arabic bread dipped in honey.
Now I look forward to hearing some of YOUR comfort foods for a sick Saudi!
