Virtual Soup Swap



The smell in my house is beyond dee-vine, right now.  It’s 11 PM and I have a Steak and Potato Soup simmering in one pot and Bean and Bacon soup simmering in the other.  I could eat my kitchen right this minute.

  1. My soup is a Smoked Sausage and Sweet Potato Soup with Black-eyed Peas and it’s delicious! I can’t believe that I’ve not heard of this Soup Swap before! I added a link to my recipe to the Soup Swap site. What a cool idea. You bet I’ll be dropping some canned soup off at our local food bank. Thanks for letting me know and for giving us a chance to share our soup recipes virtually! Can’t wait to see them all.

  2. Ok, that’s it, I’ll make corn chowder today. I’ve been waffling for a while now. I’ll make it and take pics and link up. Better late than never, right?
    Have fun and I’m glad you’re supporting a good cause.

  3. I linked three recipes: Chicken Tortilla soup, Crockpot Split Pea soup and Taco Soup. All are very easy & very yummy. I love soup so I can’t wait to see all the recipes. Thanks for hosting!

  4. I’m looking forward to your bean and bacon soup recipe. Growing up and in college, I ate Campbell’s Bean and Ham soup all the time. When my husband and I were dating, and we went to the grocery store together, I bought the soup. Being silly one time, I said, “Bean and Ham, you’re coming home with me,” as I took a can off the shelf. He thought that was funny, and for years, he’d sometimes say to me, “Bean and Ham, you’re coming home with me.” It’s been maybe 15 years, and he still sometimes will say it, even though I haven’t eaten that soup in more than a decade. So, all that to say, it’d be fun to eat a bean and ham/bacon soup again.

  5. What a fabulous idea…a virtual soup swap. LOVE IT! I’m linking up my Butternut Leek Soup which is fantastic 🙂
    BTW..good one for suggesting loading up the food bank box with some soup. You inspired me and it was a good thing. Happy soup swap!

  6. This is my first time visiting your blog. I found you through another recipe link exchange from last week.

    What a perfect timing. I love making and eating soups in the winter. I hooked up one of my old recipes , but my absolute favorite. I make it a lot.

  7. We had an awesome Soup Swap at my house this weekend! We swapped nearly 100 quarts of soup, and collected three boxes of canned goods to donate to a local food pantry. It was my first time to host, and everyone’s first time to attend, and we are all looking forward to the next one!

  8. I could never want for another soup recipe in my life with all these wonderful choices! I have had an unquenchable craving for soups this season!
