Suzie's Seaside Soup

Brrr it's cold outside and a perfect time to warm up with some comfort food. This recipe was given to me by Suzie over at Happy Shack and is soooo yummy. My family just loves it so I had to share it with all of you. We never had eaten artichoke hearts so that was something new for us and believe me it was good. So here's the recipe. Hope that you all try it and enjoy it as much as we do.

5 tablespoons flour
5 tablespoons butter or margarine melted
2 cups chicken broth
1 cup chopped green onions
1/2 tablespoons cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon cumin powder
1/2 teaspoon dry thyme
1/2 pound small shrimp cooked & deveined or 14 oz bag of frozen cooked & deveined shrimp (I used more shrimp cause my boys love shrimp so you can use the entire bag or more if you like)
2 cans artichoke hearts drained chopped to bite size pieces
4 cups whole or skim milk or heavy cream (milk is easier on the thighs )

Melt butter in large soup pot, stir in flour to make paste.
Slowly stir in chicken broth which is at room temp or heated in the microwave. Just not cold or you will get lumps in your flour mixture.
Now add all the other ingredients, the seasonings, onions and milk.
Still well and cook on low to medium til it simmers. Stir occasionally so it won't scorch.
Yields 6 to 8 servings. Serve with hot rolls.
Now eat up and enjoy. Yum!
