Have a Soup Swap!

soup swap

A variety of tasty soups… my curry lentil stew along with roasted red pepper, butternut squash, sweet potato kale chowder and potato leek soup.

When cold weather keeps you in, get out and gather with old and new friends at a soup swap.

My friend Carol organized this one and I hosted it at my house last night. Our gathering was complete with homemade Irish soda bread with honey butter, a potpourri of soups and stews, spring mesculin mix with pecans and goat cheese and wonderful desserts.

It was delish! Recipes were swapped along with lots of laughs and a great evening out with the girls.
