Food for when you (or your loved one) is sick/has a cold????

My wife is sick and I'm trying to think of more "creative" things to make her than the usual things I do when she has a cold (sniffles, runny nose, headache, week muscles, no energy...NO stomach sickness/uneasiness). She doesn't care for fish or spicy food.

I usually make her...
-Fresh Chicken Noodle Soup
-Fresh Chicken and Dumplings
-Garden Salad
-Cream of Wheat with cinnamon, butter and raisins (for some reason she likes this)

I'm also interested in your (or your loved ones) food likes and dislikes when you/they are sick....anything special?
