Happy Friday, friends!
Isn’t it revealing that the moment we decide to go maskless, all of a sudden people start getting sick?
A number of students and staff members at my school have been sick this past week. And it’s not necessarily due to Covid, either. There are still the common cold, the flu, strep throat, and even seasonal allergies out there.
I myself was feeling poorly last week after being exceptionally healthy for the past 2 years when we were mandated to wear a mask. Didn’t even get the start-of-the-school-year cold that I normally get. So much for being maskless …
However, my tests came back negative for either the flu or Covid, so in the end, I was diagnosed with the good ol’ upper respiratory infection aka the common cold with post nasal drip.
That drip, drip… is so annoying! Yes, IS annoying. I’m still experiencing it after a week!
Makes me want to go back wearing a mask because I most likely wouldn’t have been infected had I worn one. It was a nuisance but hey, it kept the germs at bay. But the silver lining is… life is starting to normalize and I can understand what people are saying and vice versa.
And because I’ve been sick, our meals this week feature a lot of soup, some from restaurants, some homemade. Like this Creamy Chicken Gnocchi Soup below. Homemade, btw, in case you’re wondering. Homemade gnocchi, too.
Now, it’s time to fiesta!

“I am into anything hummus. For me, there is nothing, a slice of hummus pizza can’t solve.” — Jhuls
“I’m with Jhuls on this one. Hummus for world peace!” — Angie
“I’ll never say no to anything with a sunny-side-up egg. I would gladly trade my usual Filipino breakfast for this.” — Jhuls
“Jhuls and I must have been on a pizza kick. And of course, great minds think alike! We shall never say no to sunny eggs!” — Angie
“Oh, boy, this one makes you want to run to the nearest Indian restaurant! Or better yet, run to the store to get garam masala! It’s been a while since I last had Indian food.” — Angie
“Easy to prepare, sounds and looks mouthwatering. This is something I’d like to enjoy for dinner. Yum!!” — Jhuls

You are right, Angie. I’ve been on a pizza kick lately, too. Haven’t prepared something to share this week but I am dropping by to say hi to everybody and to our co-host Pauline.? Happy FF, Angie. I wish you a healthy weekend!!♥️
Thanks, Jhuls! I’m slowly feeling better, now if only the weather cooperates. No more rain, please! Since I haven’t done much cooking this week, I plan to make it up this weekend. I will fiesta! ?

Hope you build up your immunity. It’s great to be back to normal without mask thou. Our government has just announced no mask outdoor and I guess that might happen to us too.
Yup, that’s the other silver lining, building up immunity. I’m glad Covid is subsiding where you are, Pauline. Let’s hope it’ll continue its downward trend everywhere.

Sorry to hear you’re ‘under the weather’ as we say here in Australia Angie.
It’s cold here so I’ve just put on a hearty beef stew. ?
Thanks! Beef stew sounds good; it’s a little chilly here today as well but at least it’s sunny. As long as it’s sunny, I feel fine ?
Once again another GREAT party FULL of inspiring projects and recipes – thanks for hosting!
You’re welcome! XO

Sorry to hear you’ve not been well Angie, hoping you getter better soon.
Thanks for featuring my Jalfrezi and the lovely comment, I bet a good curry would do your cold good 🙂
Catching up with my blog this weekend but hoping to join in the Fiesta party next week.
Thanks, Sarah! I feel so much better already. I love that Jalfrezi, and yes, spicy food would have helped 😀
