Save the Date for Soup-a-Palooza

Baby, it’s cooooold outside! I think it is high time we celebrate one of our favorite comfort foods.…… SOUP!

Soup is one of those things that everyone can equate back to their childhood. My mom always made the best chicken noodle soup, served on our silver “sick tray” in bed when we were under the weather. When you come in from a cold day of snow fort building, what do you want? 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 15th Cheryl of Tidy Mom 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!!

    We eat soup almost every day and it will be pretty hard to choose the favorites! This is a great idea even without the prizes. Looking forward to reading what other bloggers like to make.

    Love this idea because soup is one of my favorite things about this time of year, including a warm fire in the fireplace, hot drinks like coffee and apple cider, and soft warm fuzzy socks! Looking forward to finding some awesome new soup recipes, as well as participating with one from The Chef!
