The Dracula and Germs Stay Away Stew

I made this from scratch a few times and it seemed to do the trick of stopping me from getting much sicker.  I had a fever and a cold for a couple of weeks and homemade soups and stews with lots of garlic, onions, and veggies helped me from getting worse.

What I need is for someone else to do the cooking when I'm sick.  That's a nice dream.     

This is my version of Italian Wedding Soup.

This is what I used for 2 servings:
  • An 8oz can of Low Sodium Chicken Broth
  • About a half can of cold water
  • A few small fresh Potatoes: cleaned, peeled, and diced to a small size
  • A few fresh, not frozen Carrots:  cleaned, peeled, and thinly sliced
  • I only had frozen Chopped Spinach on hand so I used a few handfuls
  • As much fresh, sliced Onion as I wanted
  • Ditto on the Garlic:  fresh, peeled, and sliced
  • Some dry Cracked Red Pepper
  • Some Lemon and Pepper dry blend (like Mrs. Dash or other brand)
  • Some Thyme
  • Mini Meatballs I had in the freezer made especially for this stew, cooked and thawed
I put everything in the pot, heated to boiling, simmered until potatoes were done and everything else was heated thoroughly.  We had this for a meal with the Crescent Roll Redo from a previous post.  It's very hearty.  We needed this with the temps in the Arctic range all that week and the germs going around catching up with me as usual.
