Yes, the broth is homemade. Just water, salt, and the natural flavors of the veggies and meat. I do not add any oils, because the protein I stew is usually fatty enough. Like lamb, dark chicken, or beef.
My husband was always good about me spending so much time on my son too. As the kids get older a woman has more time to devote to hubby. My dad was like my hubby. My FIL was a little different - he even had his own chair that no one else could sit in. LOL.
I am definitely not eating chicken more than once a week now. I am trying different sauces but it's still chicken. Yuck!
I had some stomach trouble last night. I'm trying to get back to my eating schedule. I can't eat after 7 P.M. due to GERD and I don't like to have to have G.I. problems in the night. The probiotics help some.
It sounds like you may have an inner ear problem. I get those sometimes.
I would try to get my money back since they didn't fix it right. That's a lot of money for a simple job.
