Soup Swap for a Cause January 22 3 - 5 pm

For our inaugural soup swap, we are inspired by my almost-name-twin, Kathy Gunst and her new book Soup Swap. Here's how it works:

  • Make some soup!  about 4 quarts, give or take
  • On the day of the swap, bring your soup and three empty quart-size containers (for the soup that you will take home). Also bring your recipe.  
  • Midway Kitchen will provide bread, salad, wine, bowls, spoons.  After a little mingling, we'll all get to taste the soups. Once we've had time to taste, the swap will begin!  
  • Everyone will draw a number and take turns talking about their soup, how wonderful it is and why they love it.  
  • After that, and in reverse order, we'll take turns picking a soup to take home, each person getting 3 soups at the end.  Trading is encouraged after the initial swap! 
  • A Sunday afternoon of fun for only $10 - and take home enough soup to have a several more meals.  

We'll be collecting donations for food related organizations and events that help the community at each swap.  This swap we'll be collecting money for Ashley Rising, a program that teaches life skills to mothers in recovery, including cooking skills.  Or you can donate online  http://www.ashleyrising.org/donate.html
