National Soup Swap Day

National Soup Swap Day is January 24. I'll be having a few friends over to chat and swap soups. You might like to join us at my home if you can. You are all invited. If not why not host your own Soup Swap. Details are on the site linked here. Everyone invited brings 6 quarts of homemade soup to swap. In exchange you will go home with 6 different soups to stash in your freezer till you need a quick hot meal. Sounds like a great deal to me. At some of the swaps prizes are given. I am also going to ask each gal to bring copies of her recipe to share with everyone. I will also have favors for each gal. Haven't decided what to serve yet but a big pot of soup seems appropriate. Can anyone out there in Blogland think of other ways to make this a fun day?
This picture is my "Cream of 2 Potato Soup" and I'll post the recipe later.

That sounds good! You should do a virtual soup swap! We can all make our favorite soup and then post our recipes on our blogs! If you don't want to host it then I will! That would be such a great way to get a lot of good soup recipes and you can see what it looks like from the photos on the blogs!

what a great idea. In fact I just made me some gaspacho soup today. I love it. It is best in the summer, as it is a cold served soup. I love to take it out to the beach with me in the cooler. I think I have it on my recipe blog, plates and places, if you 're interested.

Thanks for dropping by Bloggeritaville. I hope you will return. I love new friends. Old friends too for that matter.

Have a great soup swap!

Newbie to your blog! What a great idea! I didn't take notice of where you live, but here in Wisconsin, that would be a fun thing to do! Good luck with your swap and have fun.

That soup looks so yummy! I'd love to hear your recipe. Thanks for letting me know about the Soup Swap Day, I'd never heard of that before!

Oh, this sounds like a great idea! Coincidentally, I have already made three different homemade soups this year! I should have blogged about them! I'll check back to see how your idea progresses. And of course its not too late for you to get a horse! Fingers crossed that your dream of having one of our own comes true. :-)

Hi Ahrisha
That sounds like a fun swap. Evryone loves soup especially on a cold winter day. I've been thinking of making some soup for a couple of days, so you've just givenme the incentive to do it!

Ahrisha, your soup looks wonderful!! That is such a great idea for the month of January! I wanted to thank you so much for stopping by and leaving such a kind comment on my blogpost about losing our three fur babies. Your Spirit does look so much like my Mr. B!! He's gorgeous!!! Maybe you'll do a post on him sometime? I'd love to see some closeup photos of him, he's so handsome!!... Enjoy your soup swap!... Donna @ An Enchanted Cottage
