I Swap, You Swap, Hey It's a Soup Swap

After reading about swappin' soup from Lelly's blog, I threw the idea out to the Girls. Since we usually meet once a week to discuss our Bible Study lessons, we decided to add some soup swapping to the mix last night. Coffee, chat, snacks, chat, prayer, chat...and frozen soup. Perfect!

The timing WAS actually perfect because our dear friend Lacie was in town with her sweet family for the Men's Retreat taking place this weekend. Here we are posing in front of our soups in Robyn's kitchen. Using the self timers on our cameras was quite entertaining as we dashed back and forth to pose. At least we can say we got our exercise, right?

Zesty chicken tortilla soups, yummy Olive Garden soup and tasty taco soups were all in attendance. We each talked about our soup and shared the recipe before loading up our ice chests with all the soup-y goodness. We all agreed it was pretty satisfying to cook one big batch of soup, share it and go home with 4 different soups to try. This might be something we do a couple of times a year to "Fill the Freezer". We even tossed around the idea of swapping casseroles too. Someone stop us before we get too out of control!

Look how happy they look in their new home--my freezer!

Our first soup swap was small and simple, but it definitely was a success.

Now for George Costanza...notsomuch...


Have you ever swapped soup? Do you think you'll give it a whirl?

  3. Wow~ what a fun soup swap!!!
    I have got to do this-
    Robyn's kitchen is so pretty, especially the lovely goblets behind you. All the soups look amazing.

    I think a frozen casserole swap sounds even better, but a lot harder to put together.

    One of my favorite gifts to give teachers & neighbors or the lady who helps me with my quilts... etc. is a homemade frozen lasagna. so yummy, so practical, & so appreciated!!

  12. You girls are so COOL. Of course, I am a little prejudice! I say, you are on to something. Next month, casserole. Next month, deserts to freeze, Next month, salad supper. Can I come? I love the Seinfeld clip too. You all look great and happy to get together.

  14. Way to bring the Soup Nazi into soup swap, every time I've read about soup swap on Lelly's blog I've thought to myself,
    "No soup for you!"
