A bit of a parlor game, this is the second Soup Swap that we’ve opened our house to anyone living within our neighborhood, the Central District of Seattle.
Yep, putting the word out to the local press and defining our neighborhood so that anyone living south of Madison, north of I-90, between 14th and 30th is invited, it’s possible we could have thousands of people of all kinds show up.
Lucky for our snack budget, only twenty came! A great opportunity to get to know the people we might see on our walks, hear about the latest new restaurant or crime from, and of course, find folks nearby we could borrow the proverbial “cup of sugar” from. It’s good to know your neighbors and to have them know you. Drinking wine, swapping soup, and listening to how much care and interest people put into cooking for others is a great way to start.
While we hope next year to actually make the National Soup Swap in January, we’re both huge proponents of these neighborhood Soup Swaps. Read all about how to host your own at SoupSwap.com.
