Over the last few weeks, it has seemed like a hospital here. 

Kevin and I both caught that crud that has been going around  and, well damn, that shizz is hard to get rid of!! I was OK after about 10 days, but Kevin hung on to his for-EVER. Actually, he is still coughing but said he feels 100 times better than he did.

We caught it from the G-baby, and I guess she got another grandparent sick too. That means she took out 50% of us! 

Ya, it totally kicked our butts!

So many people were on my case because I didn't get my flu shot this year, but last year I got it and then promptly ended up in the ER because I got the flu so hard and so fast. I had to be put on fluids, and they gave me Tamiflu. 

Then I came home, and lived on canned chicken and noodle soup and tea for the next week!

So much for a flu shot, right?

Luckily, or maybe I was being a bit psychic, I had just made my Slow Cooker Chicken Noodle Soup for Kevin, and a big pot of this Low-Carb Lemon Chicken Noodle Soup for myself. 

So we lived off of the two of those soups for the next week.

We fell so in love with this soup that Kevin requested I make another batch this week. 

I am not going to argue. There is something about this soup that just makes me happy. Maybe it is the brightness the lemon gives it. It is like good ol' fashioned chicken noodle with a little "pop"  of brightness.

Now that I think about it, I have been drinking my tea with lemon in it since we were sick too.

I guess I have a thing for lemons now  

So, when life gives you lemons, make this Low-Carb Lemon Chicken Noodle Soup!

    Oh, I love this twist on traditional chicken noodle soup! Lemons are lovely and the white wine is a great addition, too.
