#WIAW - Soup Exchange Party

I am so lucky to have an amazing group of girlfriends in my life. These are friendships I have had for most of my life - some spanning over 20 year now, starting the very first day of kindergarten.

These girls probably know me better than I know myself, share my love of sass, sarcasm, and a dark sense of humor. They are some of my absolute favourite people. And they are people I wish I could see more, but growing up and real life means we are not all as conveniently located as we used to be. So any excuse to spend time with these girls is alright by me. I am always anxious for a visit, a chat, and laugh.

This most recent visit though we decided to put our cooking skills to the test and have a soup exchange along with our regular gab-fest. Each person made enough soup to divide into freeze-able portions for everyone else and then we would all exchange our recipes with each other.

The beauty is you only make one recipe but you leave with - in this case - 4 others. They make a perfect ready-made meal to come home to and warm up with on a cold winters night, with lots of variety.

It was the perfect afternoon. The soup was delicious. And the company even better!

What do you think? Will you try a soup exchange this winter?
