What do you eat/drink when you're sick?

I've recently picked up a bit of a cold, likely due to some recent air travel. I am sitting down to a bowl of pasta with butter and salt, which is my favorite thing to eat when I'm feeling sick. I was wondering if any other SE-ers had favorite "sick" foods or drinks. Do you go the traditional chicken soup route, or do you like something more unconventional? Do you make it yourself, or do you have a loving family member/friend/significant other who helps you out? Just curious!
