Solstice Soup Swap

6:00 AM

Solstice Soup Party.  Or End of the World Soup Consumption Extravaganza.  However you want to look at it, we are celebrating the Solstice with soup.

Bryan has been busy stringing lights on the gazebo frame.  The plan is to put the fire pit in the middle of the patio.  We are going to have hot drinks- hot spiced wine and hot cocoa with schnapps (maybe some hot buttered rum).  Everyone who is coming will bring a pot of their favorite soup.  We will have mugs to eat from so people can sample all the different offerings.  I'm making cream of broccoli and some sort of biscuit.

We wanted a low key evening to celebrate the solstice with family and friends.  The kids can play in the snow or in the basement.  The peeps can take a break from their last minute shopping.  Or in my case from the rush of starting to shop.  And for a bit of fun we thought why not go out with a bang with those we love most.  Who knows? This could be the start of a long and wonderful tradition.

Happy Friday.  Happy Solstice.  Happy Winter.  Have a great weekend.

  1. I just LOVE this! What a nice tradition! The drinks sound pretty yummy as well.

  2. It is so funny that you are mentioning this! My mother called me last night to say that she cannot pick me up from the airport tonight because she is hosting a soup party of her own! I'm excited because there will be soups waiting for me when I get home! Sounds like you are having a larger group though, good luck!

    1. Hope your moms soup party was as much fun as ours and you got some dee-lish soups!

  3. happy solstice to you as well :)
