Soup season is officially underway and what better way to celebrate than with a soup swap? By now the weather might be cooling down in your area and the crock pot has been turned on a few times already. We don't always have soup real often at our house, but I'm hoping to incorporate such nights into our meal plans this fall and winter season.
I've gathered a few friends to host our own soup swap in just a couple weeks. Similar to my traditional freezer swaps but this time we've chosen to only prepare a soup. We're planning to meet at my house on a Sunday with our prepared recipes times four, that way everyone can go home with a different soup to try.
You could also plan a soup swap just as you would do for a holiday cookie exchange. Invite your friends and family to bring along a favorite soup, along with printed recipes and extra containers. Plan to provide small bowls and silverware for sampling the soups, along with crackers and bread for soaking up that wonderful goodness at the bottom of each bowl. Each guest can then fill their containers with soup to take home and enjoy with their families or stash in their freezer. I love my cookie swaps before Christmas, but I seriously can't wait to give this a try!
For today though, I've gathered a few of my blogger friends and have asked them to share some of their favorite seasonal soups. Anything from traditional classics like chicken noodle and chili to the drool worthy loaded baked potato and fiesta pork soup. You'll want to keep this close by as you're planning your menus out this fall and winter season...or perhaps planning your own soup swap. Which one are you anxious to try first?
