Turkey + Cabbage Soup

Well, hello there!

It’s been a while…a couple weeks…a month? How have you been?

I have been good/stressed/sick. I have been good because I’ve been spending a lot of time with myself since Barrett is in Nashville now. I’ve been rediscovering some things I used to love to do before Barrett and I hung out 24/7. I started journaling again and I spend more time doing self-care things.

I’ve been stressed because school is mentally, physically, and emotionally draining. That is all.

And I’ve been sick because I had mono last February so lucky me I catch anything flying through the air. Lots of runny noses, throwing up, bloody noses…everything. Hah! I am slowly getting back to normal though.

I have a lot of things I need to fill you in on. I can’t decided when I want to do that yet so bare with me! I’ve been making some big life decisions lately as I still try to figure out who I am and who I’m supposed to be.

Anyways, I have a recipe for you today! I based this recipe off of this Russian Braised Cabbage from Natasha’s Kitchen. I turned her braised cabbage into a soup with a few more ingredients and some modifications.
