Cheesy Chicken Spinach Artichoke Soup

Cheesy Chicken Spinach Artichoke Soup
Welcome to my party friends!  This happens to be my best “POT-LUCK” ever and I’d love to dish a bowl of Cheesy Chicken Spinach Artichoke Soup out of my new copper pot for you.
 
 

Potluck you say, well I will ask you, have you ever seen a more beautiful pot?
 
 
It’s a 7-quart, hammered copper and brass Williams Sonoma “soup station.”  
 
One of my favorite bloggers, Jacqueline@Purple Chocolate Home  held a give-away for one of her lucky followers and I’m absolutely thrilled to be her grateful recipient.  Thanks so much Jacqueline for such a lovely gift.  Talk about, “pot-luck,” each time I simmer spicy cider, rich hot chocolate, a special stew, {I could go on and on} I will think of you.  During the holidays it will be the star at each buffet!
 
 
Jacqueline creates amazing tablescapes each week.  I fell in love with this soup station when I saw this picture on her blog.  The smooth copper-brass lid and brass handles combined with the hammered copper sides makes it a work of art.  It’s the most spectacular cooking vessel ever to grace my kitchen.  Jacqueline also knows how to cook with a French flair.  She lives in an amazing home with a pizza oven in her kitchen and knows how to make everything she touches look delicious!
 
 
When the UPS man arrived at my door, I was thinking about Friday night football food.  Our beloved Boise State Broncos were taking on Fresno State.  After opening the box, I knew it was time for our first annual autumn  P O T   P A R T Y.  The soup de jour,  Cheesy Chicken Spinach-Artichoke Soup, whew-ee,  is party fare and would be divine served in a bread bowl.  Next time I serve it I will plan ahead and do just that.

    That is a gorgeous pot! Oh my goodness. I think I would want to just display it and never cook in it.
    I think it will get tons of use at your house with your cooking skills.

    You are a very deserving winner!

    Gorgeous pot! I try not to covet Jacqueline’s kitchen when I visit her. It’s so beautiful.

    I was just telling the family that I could eat soup every night in the autumn. I love it so much, and I can’t enjoy it in the summer. I kind of overdose on it during the fall.
