This is a great idea! Six meals for the effort of one big pot of soup; brilliant! I'm definitely in.

LizzyQ: There might be a few veggie soups there, but I don't know about vegan. If you have vegan friends, you should invite them to assure some!! The more soup the better!!! :
I know emma_goldman makes a mighty fine vegan stew/soup!

I already know there is going to be more than us MDC'ers there. Many at Wasatch Commons are already eager to join in, I have a few family members. BRING ANYONE that LOVES TO COOK AND EAT SOUP!
You may not be able to take home EVERY soup there, but you get to choose which soups you take home!
If you want 12 quarts, you have to BRING 12 quarts. (preferably 2 different kinds at that point! Variety is key!)
You will receive back as many quarts as you bring.

You will find the Seattle groups Soup Swap Guidelines HERE.

OH! And we will have The Telling of Soup. Because every soup has a story.

BUMP!

What to Bring:
Bring SIX quarts of a frozen soup. (1 quart = 2 pints = 4 cups = 32 fluid ounces).
Bring six quarts of the same soup if possible, but if you show up with two kinds of soup
to make the required SIX quarts we will not turn you away - the real requirement is that
everyone has the same amount of soup in same size containers.

Be mindful of soups that do not freeze well, like potato or cream soups. If you do this
type of soup, perhaps send them in separate containers or give last minute instructions,
"after heating, add 1 cup cream", for example. Identify your soups with labels or marker
in case your containers look the same as someone else?s. And finally, be sure to include
any necessary ?accessories? to your soup, like cheese (also in a freezable container).

What to Expect:
6:30 - Arrive promptly with your 6 quarts of frozen soup. EAT SOUP! (provided) DRINK
WINE! (you bring)
7:30 - the Telling of the Soup! This is each chef's opportunity to talk about what makes
their soup special. Is it organic? It is spicy? Does it have anything someone might not
be able to eat? Is it a treasured recipe?
8:00 - the soup swap! Participants will each be given a number. Person #1 picks the first
soup, Person #2 the second and so on, until everyone has selected a soup. Repeat six
times until all the soup is gone.
8:30 - Everyone should now be leaving with the same amount of soup, but now it is a
wonderful mix of soup!

Etcetera:

* Please bring an item to share: Wine, bread, cheese, crackers, fruit...
* You don't have to be present to participate. Just make arrangements to drop off the
soup, and choose someone to pick your soups for you (proxy pickers will pick last).
* If you bring a non-perishable food item (or two), we'll donate it to the Utah Food
Bank.

Please RSVP!

RSVP: One eagerly waiting Jennifer and one hungery hubby named Bill (the real chef in our home) and possibly one grinning little girl!! That makes 3.

Thanks for the link Julie. It was very helpful. Before reading we were thinking of making our potatoe cheese and broccli masterpiece but now we have decided to bring our Four Grain Tomato!!! YUMMY:
