A Stew to Beat the Flu

I have been so sick the last few days. Ugh. Throwing up is the worst, and being nauseous all day long is not better. I seem to be on the mend, though, so hopefully I will be back to my usual perky self tomorrow. I have the best roommates ever who have taken great care of me. They did my dishes, laundry, and even took me to the doctor. It's almost like having my mamma here with me.. (But not quite.) It has also been good just to have a couple of days to relax. I never take time to just sit and catch up on sleep. My body really needed it. I guess there are always good things that come from the bad. Today's recipe is nutrient dense, protein packed, and warm and comforting. It could fight off any bad flu or yucky cold. It's always nice to have something warm and settling to help you regain strength after sickness. (After the puking ends, of course.) This stew fits the bill completely.
