Soup Swap


Holly is a genius! When I heard about her great soup swap idea, I had to try it myself. I hosted a soup swap for our church cooking group this week and it was a huge success! It was a fun excuse to get together, socialize, eat and leave with dinner for our families.
Here's how to host your own:
  1. Ask some of your friends to mix up a batch of their favorite soup.
  2. Tell them to bring 4 containers full of deliciousness(we required 6 cups per bowl) to your home.
  3. Make your own steamin' pot of soup and serve to your guests with fresh bread.
  4. After everyone eats, chats and shares recipes, send them home with 4 new bowls-- a variety of homemade concoctions to save, serve or share!

Fun, food and leftovers to spare!

I read that post as well... and was inspired, just as you, to do one of my own. I haven't put that effort in yet though... sigh.

Good for you! I'm jealous!

What a GREAT idea. And since we have LOTS more winter to go here, I still have time!

Jessica said...

Oh my gosh...I would want to make ALL the soups. Have I mentioned that I have LOTS of good soup recipes?

I would lOVE that too. Soup is one of my favorite dishes for dinner.

We host a soup party every year the Friday before Christmas. It is the highlight of our season almost (other than celebrating Hanukkah for my Jewish roots). People call ME for invites, it has grown out of control! It is fun and I have gotten some great recipes over the years. Fun, fun, fun!!!!

Let's have a soup recipe swap!!!

I went to one once in my ward in San Diego. It was one of the funnest parties I've ever been to. What a great idea!

I like this idea. I can make a mean beef stew that could pass for soup! Just got to convince a few friends round here to try the soup swap.
