Made for featuring on morning shows, Soup Swap’s a great party idea! Here in Seattle, lifestyle wonderwoman, Kelley Moore does a segment on King 5′s Northwest New Day regularly. Yesterday, she had ideas for hosting a soup swap. Less about the soup, and more about the event, she showed off invites, table decorations, soup labels, snacks, wine, beer…
Good grief, how she even had time to give a shout out to National Soup Swap Day is amazing.
Now Kelley is promoting the taste and meal approach to Soup Swap, and it’s one that several groups have adopted, starting all the way back with Bad Home Cooking, “What do you mean the soup was supposed to be frozen?” and we’ve been known to have a pot of not quite ready to trade soup hot on our own oven being the procrastinators we are!
As you know, we always say this, “Join us on National Soup Swap Day, but if you can’t swap then… swap when you can!”… so by now you ought to know that we also believe that you should swap soup in the way that works best for your group of pals. We find it easy to transport frozen soup and we like the mystery. But if you really feel everyone can handle a big old pot of soup in the car and get to your party or you want folks to set some aside for tasting, do it! Maybe you want to trade four instead of six, or have all the soup be vegan or filled with animals, or not soups per se at all, but maybe curry, well, we’re not stopping you! Go for it…and send us a picture!
Or better yet, post one on our Facebook page!
