Bloggers Soup Swap Day

I wonder what is bubbling in this pot? Pennsylvania Dutch Sausage Stew for dinner tonight. Don't you all love a bowl of steaming hot soup when the weather turns cold? Well so do we and this is predicted to be our coldest week so far this winter.As I posted last week Saturday January 24 is National Soup Swap Day and I am going to do my part here at Joyously Living Life by hosting a Bloggers Soup Swap Day. These are the guidlines for the Bloggers SSD. Guidelines for the National are a little different and can be accessed by clicking on the title of this post for the link. You may want to host a Soup Swap at your house and post pictures of the event.

Make your favorite soup and post a picture of it on your blog on January 24. Also post the recipe for your soup so that bloggers everywhere can enjoy your soup too. That's it, sweet and simple and imagine all the wonderful recipes we will all share. Please describe your soup and maybe a little story about how you came to have the recipe. Post your contribution then return here and use Mr. Linky to link to your post so that everyone can visit you for the recipe. Ask your friends to join us too. The more the merrier.

Hi Arisha- So glad you stopped at my blog. Afraid I've not been really good at keeping up with posting. Too distracted with other projects. I do love the Lancaster area and soup. If I can find an extra few minutes, I'll try to get a recipe up with pictures. Nancy
PS: Honestly, we don't hunt or wear fur and the worst thing I do to the deer is use an organic repellent!

Thank you so much for stopping by Nora Lee's Nook; it's so nice to meet you. The soup looks delicious; and would be wonderful with the cold weather we are having. I also noticed your blue and white "salt jar" is thats what it's called? I recently went to some antiques stores in another part of North Carolina and they were in every store; I had never seen one before.

Oh gathering lots of soup recipes sounds wonderful!

Yes, this _is_ the time of year, when soup is purrrrfect, isn't it? And it makes the house smell so good and inviting too.

Thanks for the posting at SoupSwap.com. I am hoping it'll find you some new participants, particularly those folks who can't find a Soup Swap near them to go to!

Cheers,

Hi Ahrisha,
This is my first visit to your lovely blog. I noticed you mentioned essential oils and I'd be very interested in more information about them. Would it be possible for you to e-mail me ??Thanks,

I'm going to try my best to make soup on Saturday and post the pictures and recipe. It may not be up on my blog until later in the day though!
