Recipe

This past week has been a rough one for our house.  Between head colds, construction in our building, and work stress there was definitely some long faces.  So to soothe both our colds and hearts, I decided to make a big batch of chicken soup.  Since we had already had traditional chicken soup earlier in the week, I wanted to make something different and this version with lemon and artichokes was just what the doctor ordered.  It comforted both our stomachs and souls for the night and the leftovers tasted even better the next day.
