While the weather has lately been turning towards thought of summer grilling, the last couple days ought to be a reminder, we’ve got lots of gloomy days ahead where a bowl of soup is a perfect dinner.
We’ll be hosting the 2nd Central District Soup Swap in our Colman/Judkins Park home on Wednesday, March 24th.
Last year’s event was a great way to meet neighbors through out the CD and go home with a nice mix of soup for your freezer and we can’t think of why this year’s won’t be just as lovely.
We’re going to broadly define the CD so that if you live North of Atlantic, South of Madison, East of 14th and West of 30th, weâ€™re inviting you!
You can read about Soup Swap (it’s a craze that started right here in Seattle) at www.soupswap.com. For this swap, youâ€™ll want to bring 6 one quart containers for frozen soup. We wonâ€™t be specifying its vegan or meat qualities: make what you like. Itâ€™s just important to make sure itâ€™s in quart containers and youâ€™ve got six!
Weâ€™ll open our house at 6:00 pm for mingling and drinking some wine, with the Telling of the Soup and swapping to commence promptly at 7:00. Weâ€™ll have snacks and mingling can go on and on, but if youâ€™re in dash, we should be finished by 7:30.
Of course, if you want to swap soup but canâ€™t make the time, youâ€™re welcome to drop the soup off or send it with someone else, but proxies pick last.
Finally, weâ€™ll ask that everyone bring some caned foods or pasta for the St. Maryâ€™s food bank in Jackson Place.
