Jane Reimold sent in this report:

Ten ladies plus 11 kinds of soup equals great fun! On Saturday morning, January 26, 10 folks gathered in Havertown, PA, to drink tea and coffee, munch muffins, fellowship, and get down to the business of swapping soups. Coolers full of delicious soup were first inspected by the TSA (terrier sniffing associate).

Variety was great. Soups included everything from a vegetable beef (the cook was on a first-name basis with the cow!) to a pumpkin bisque, Italian wedding soup, taco soup, split pea with barley, pasta e fagioli, chili with beans, African peanut chicken, bean and ham, lentil-sausage, and beef barley. One soup arrived fresh, not frozen, and immediately graced several dinner and lunch tables later that day. Prizes were given for first and last soup picked and each person went home with homemade croutons and a suggested list of things to eat with soup. Requests were made to repeat the event next year.
