Spicy Meatball Stew with Potatoes & Carrots

Hey there everyone,

Thank you all for your very kind wishes for this month.  It didn’t start off so well, I have the flu, lost my voice, high fever. uxxxxx.  The last thing I remember is that it was Saturday morning, and then it was Sunday morning.  I had a high fever, and well you know how it goes. It was quite hard yesterday trying to have a lesson with a voice that barely existed.

So, this morning I woke feeling better but my voice has still not fully recovered.  I had to work and I felt awful because half the time no one could actually hear what I was saying. 🙁  Ohhh and one more thing I saw this morning that worried me a bit,  I noticed a small bald spot on Charlie’s head.  I called the Vet and she said there was nothing to worry about, I just need to keep an eye on it for the next few days and if it starts to open then I have to take him to the Vet at the end of the week.  Just one thing after another!!  

For the first time in a very long time, I actually sat down and read my Horoscope.  The last time I read my horoscope was literally when the Sh%&&%  hit the fan. I think that was about 9 years ago.  Aries here we gooooo,  I started to read my horoscope, and well it seems that the first couple of days of November ain’t gonnna be good days. okkkk  Well I guess just about sums it up!!:)

This is actually hubbies favorite soup, I had all the ingredients so I just put it together in no time.  I wasn’t feeling up to eating meat…not really a meat kind of person, so I made my delicious Tomato Soup. 🙂  The recipe if you are interested is on my blog.  🙂

Have a great week everyone!! 🙂

  1. Praying things get better dear Sophie. It's no fun being sick, then it seems like if it's not one thing its 12 others, right? This soup sounds delicious, and OF COURSE, who wouldn't want your tomato soup recipe. Silly question :)
  2. Oh no, I’m sorry you’ve been feeling so incredibly rotten. The flu can be awful, don’t underestimate the power of it making you feel utterly terrible and losing days from it. I’m glad little Charlie is okay, best to be safe with these things and get them checked. Hopefully it resolves, along with the rest of your flu & poorly throat. Mmm this recipe sounds lovely, I’ve never actually used meatballs in a stew! Definitely the weather for warming stews. Rest up & I hope things start to improve so the rest of the month is a little brighter  ♥ Caz xxxx
    • Good morning Caz...Thank you so very much!! I loved your posts on Xmas Gifts it was fabulous!!!!
      • Aww thank you lovely, that means a lot! :) How're you doing at the moment? Is the flu and sore throat any better? I really do hope things ease up for you over this week  ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
      • Hi Caz, Well I was feeling better but here I go again with the runny nose and the voice. This weather is awful.
  3. Oh Sophie! I know this post was awhile ago and I hope you are doing better now! ❤️
  4. Every time I see these pictures, I'm hungry :) I hope you are feeling better dear Sophie and hopefully Charlie is ok too ❤️❤️
  5. Hello Sophie, I hope you are feeling better now. I also had a flu two weeks ago and I'm just starting to feel like myself again. Let's hope it won't take as much time for you. I told you on Instagram that I was going to try your recipe, and I did. Even took a pic of it to put with the recipe card that I made. Love the chili mixed with the dill flavor. Delicious!
    • Hi Dom, I hope you are feeling better....I had a small relapse pffff this weekend. Feeling better now..:) Did you try out the recipe??? Oh thank you so very much!! I haven't seen the photo..
      • I did! I think that I left a comment on your post about it too. If you don't see it, check your spam. It was delicious! In fact, that's what I had for lunch today. I have doubled the recipe ingredients so I have some leftover. Smart move!
      • Hi Dom, I have checked Spam file and don't see anything. Can you possibly resend it? I am so glad you enjoyed it!! :) Yep, and it was a smart move hehehehe
      • I checked your blog, and I do see my comments now. I'll try to send you my pic through DM on Instagram. I never did that so I don't know if it will work. Or you could give me your email. Easier that way. My email is dominique.nancy@3cstyle.com
