Soup Swap

10:20 AM

Saturday night I went to the December food swap of the Mile High Swappers at the Savory Spice Shop in Boulder. The theme for this swap was soup. And what a perfect night for soup. It was about 20 degrees out and it had snowed earlier in the day. Of course you could bring anything homemade or homegrown to swap.

I took Broccoli Cheese Soup to trade and brought home a jar of Delicata Squash Soup, a jar of Butternut Squash soup, a container of Mulligatawny Stew, a container of homemade chicken stock, and a bag of dee-lish cheese crackers. Corrine had the Delicata Squash soup for dinner the other night and loved it.

The idea of the swap is to bring homemade items (tasters are good), mingle and check out what others have brought. Then "bid" on what you want to soup for your soup. At the swap moment you can begin trading to get your hearts desire. Cash is not allowed...all items must be traded.

The first swap I attended was in October. I took my homemade tomato sauce, tomatilla salsa and some jams. I came home with a plethora of goodies...jams, pickles, and salsa. Oh and some Bourbon Salted Caramel Sauce! Dee-lish!

Here's a picture of the Redhead's jams!

On another random note...I haven't been running in about a week. I got sick again. I'm not sure, but it might have something to do with standing outside for three hours in 20 degree weather.
