Soup Club!

I love ideas that make dinners easier, and I love ideas that promote community building.  So of course, I was intrigued when I heard about the idea of a soup club.  It's a group of 4 women who commit to preparing soup for all four families once each month.  That means if Soup Club is on Tuesday nights, then you only have to cook one Tuesday night per month!  The other 3 Tuesdays, lovely friends will bring soup to your door!

The soup club ladies have even published a Soup Club Cookbook with some of their favorite recipes and tips for how to run a soup club..  I was given the privilege to review it this week, and I think it's great!  It's a paperback book, but more the quality of a hardback book.  The pictures are crisp, clear and inviting.

The recipes in the cookbook sound great!  There are so many options beyond the traditional chili and tortilla soup!  Spiced pumpkin, winter minestrone, red lentil curry, cold soups, thai fish curry, italian wedding soup...  They also include recipes for their favorite soup garnishes and side dishes such as salads and breads.  They even sneak in a few recipes for "big food" - when they deliver wings, sandwiches, or lasagna instead of soup!

If you're intrigued, give the book a try - I would recommend it for any mama who likes to cook and share!

I received this book as a gift from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
