Save the Date for Soup-a-Palooza

A few months ago, we celebrated pie and it was a huge success!

After chatting with a few friends we realized why not celebrate one of our favorite comfort foods.…… SOUP!

Most of us have fond childhood memories that include soup.  How many of our mom’s made us a bowl of chicken noodle soup when we were sick?  Maybe you were entertained by Alphabet Soup?  Or looked forward to going to Grandma’s house for a big pot of homemade vegetable soup?

Soup, stew, chili, chowder…….have all been staples in our diets for centuries and  can be the perfect appetizer or a quick and easy meal.

On February 15 Kristen of Dine and Dish and I would like to invite YOU to share your favorite soup recipes!!


and like every great party……..there will be prizes from some fabulous sponsors!!
