sunday soup club

October 8, 2010

i read an article in a cooking light magazine a few years back about a soup club. the soup club got together every so often to make soup and socialize. kind of like a book club, only with soup. the idea must have made an impression on me because all these years later i am starting my own very own soup club. here is how it will work…

once a month, we will meet at my house. each member will be assigned an ingredient to bring and we will get together and make soup. why soup? because soup is inexpensive and oh so comforting. i love soup and i love sharing my love of cooking with other people. i once taught a girlfriend to cook. i love the bonds that form over preparing a meal together and then sitting down to dine.

i LOVE the idea of a soup club and i figured you might too. you just might want to start your very own soup club, or book club or game night club or whatever club. i will let you know how it goes.

    LOVE getting your email posts…Thanks!

    I’ve been part of a cooking club for years. Similar concept, except we assign food categories and everyone brings their dish completed. We socialize and sit down to a three or four course meal. Everyone loves it…even the non-cookers. Thanks for reminding me to post something about it on my blog since it’s a big part of my life. Art and cooking are what do it for me! Have a Great Day!
