YOU ARE INVITED TO A SOUP SWAP, INVITE A FRIEND TOO!
Bring 6-quarts of soup, frozen in plastic containers
Bring 6 copies of your soup recipe to share
Bring an item to donate to the food shelf
Will provide tea/wine/beer, hors d'oeuvres. I will later deliver the donated foodstuffs.
Admire the quantity and variety of soups
Begin the "Telling of the soup." This is an opportunity to talk briefly about your soup's character, or how the recipe came about.
Draw numbers. Number1 person or couple picks the first soup. Number 2, the second and so on until all have selected a soup. This continues until all soup is dispersed and everyone gets to bring home 6 different quarts of soup!
THINGS TO THINK ABOUT:
Some soups don't freeze well, such as ones with cream or potatoes. Keep this in mind when you are choosing your recipe.
If you have a large insulated bag, bring it to tote your newly acquired soup home!
The disposable blue lidded plastic containers work best for freezing. Plastic bags tend to get small holes as they are moved in the freezer. Use containers you do not want back.
Everyone should bring at least 6 quarts and will bring 6 quarts home. This also means you can make 6 quarts of ANOTHER soup (total of 12) and bring 12 quarts home!
