Comments On - Soup Swap


Good tips, Melissa! We exchange recipes as well but I DO re-use my plastic bags. I also find they take up less space in the freezer. Fruit soup or gazpacho for summer swaps??

Our neighborhood just had our 1st annual Soup Swap (thanks VERY much to this blog)! It was a hit! We had good friends and good wine to go along with great soup! Thanks so much for this wonderful idea--we had a great time!
Any suggestions on what to swap in the summer months?
Some things we learned: set out both sizes of spoons--some people like large, some like small
-a loaf of fresh herb bread makes a great accompaniment
-have a permanent marker and tape on hand to label soup containers
-request that everyone bring a copy of the recipe or post the recipe to an evite or group page
-set a standard container (like a rigid ziploc quart sized container) so those who bring rigid containers don't feel jilted when some people bring un-reuseable plastic bags
THANKS FOR THE GREAT IDEA!

Thanks, Barbara. It's basically corn, broth, some onion, peppers & potato. I'll give you that recipe if I can have yours for vegetable pie. And, yes,store-bought counts too!

I love the idea of a soup swap.This entry inspires me to try one soon. Where can I find the corn chowder recipe? It looks so good. Had a great cauliflower soup last night. Admittedly, it was bought from Flourish Bakery in Scarsdale. Is that legal? In the winter, we often have soup with vegetable pies or foccacio or just a plain good baguette. I love reading your blog. It inspires me to use nutritious food and often makes me hungry.

Just made a batch of Cockaleekie soup to bring along to an annual family Scottish tradition, Robbie Burns Day dinner, where we read aloud his poetry and eat traditional Scottish dishes like haggis. Do want to try the mushroom soup recipe and thanks for the soup exchange idea!

Here are some hints, David. By definition, a chowder has to have some milk or cream and a potato or two. I like thyme & bay leaf in the broth. Bet you can figure the rest out yourself!

Judith, such a great novel refreshing idea. A soup exchange. The soup possibilities are endless. I do love corn chowder. Perhaps that recipe would be one you could publish in a future blog.

Have a great soup exchange day.

I'm looking forward to it -- nothing like having some great soup stashed in your freezer just in case.
