Chicken Florentine Soup Recipe + a Bowl Review

It’s been crazy at the Apel house! 

I have been working 40+ hours at work at Schemmer, did freelance for my last job AIM, and started teaching my Midland class this week. I was loving the work I was doing for AIM, then too many cooks in the kitchen happened. They wanted me to change things. I had to change a whole campaign. When my supervisor at Midland hit me up for 2 classes in the spring I was like - Not even going to go there yet. I told her I understood if they pick up another teacher. Now she’s asking when I’ll know if or when I can. I just don’t respond because I felt like I already did. It’s too soon for spring. I’ve flat out felt like I’ve done too many things, and none of it am I all that excited about. I just really want a work home. A place I can get excited about daily. I want to create more. I really do believe such a place exists. 

Travis has been swamped at the dental lab he works at! They started a new schedule. Long days, but off on Fridays. Well he’s pretty much always had Mondays and Fridays off. He jumped on board this schedule to get more vacation time. He’s the only one that knows how to use their 3D printer well, and has had to take work home to get jobs ready to print for the next day. He has a huge 1 man art show coming up. Every night he’s been working until midnight.

There are some nights where I hardly sleep, and other nights where I sleep all the time. I take over dinners and lunch prep. 

I made Chicken Florentine Soup last night. It’s super easy! 

Recipe + Instructions. Just add in the order stated. 

-2 tablespoons of butter

-3 diced garlic cloves

-1 diced onion

-2 diced carrots

-2 teaspoons Italian seasonings

-4 cups of chicken broth

-1 cup heavy whipping cream

-1 pound cooked, shredded chicken

-10 ounces of chopped spinach

-1 can of artichoke hearts - drained

-Salt and pepper to taste

It’s so good! 

The bowls I served it in are 8.7”x1.7”. They are perfect for salads. We have salads often.  

It’s a set of 6 that’s dishwasher safe, microwave safe, oven safe and freezer safe. 

All for $27.99. 

Where to get the bowls:

I think my only criticism is that I wish they would have had more colors and patterns to choice from. I like them otherwise.

I saw this recipe on Instagram and came over to have a look. This sounds perfect for when the grown kids all come to visit. Easy and delicious is right up my alley. Love the dishes!

I like the patterns on the dishes. The soup looks so good. I'd have to leave out the spinach though because it doesn't agree with my tummy.
Good luck to Travis on his upcoming art show!
