Well this Soup Exchange was a hit and it was agreed that we will have it again. Although I think the ladies wanted me to host another one real soon. They loved the tasting of soups and it made them look forward to going home and having soup for the next week or two. Plus then we knew which one we wanted to open first. After the tasting we voted on the most favorite soup and I gave a Taste of Home Soup Cookbook to the winner. We also just sat around and chatted with one another for an hour or so...it was lovely time with friends and family. I look forward to the next one.

How to Make 1st Annual Soup Exchange 2013

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat up your crockpots and add the soups then cover with lids. Stir occasionally till they are ready for tasting.
  2. Place cups individually on charger or sturdy plate for tastings.
  3. Label all your soups with name of soup and date so the ladies will know when they put in freezer.
  4. Print your individual recipe for the soup you made on a recipe card or print out on paper and fold them up and place with quarts of soup.
  5. I served a side dish called Brown Rice and Veggie Slice that I found here on Just a Pinch and it is delish. It is now one of my favorite sides dishes and the ladies loved it too.
  6. A friend of mine offered to bring a RedRum cake and that is what we had for dessert. It was delish and served up with whipped topping and some hot coffee.
  7. I gave each lady a Panera bread bowl to take with their quart of soup. I thought that would be a nice treat. I got one for myself and filled it with Loaded Baked Potato Chowder. Photo is below.
  8. I picked a soup recipe from Just a Pinch called Italian Sausage Soup. It's delicious!
    The other soups:
    Wedding Soup-Incredible Italian Wedding Soup
    Stuffed Pepper Soup-Easy Stuffed Pepper Soup
    Chicken Fiesta
    Beefy Vegetable Soup-Little Momma's Beefy Vegetable Soup
    Turkey Chili
