5th Annual Soup Swap

Fall has arrived (actually winter, as it’s currently snowing in Colorado, even though it’s not even November!) I threw my 5th annual soup swap this Sunday and it was so lovely! I started this tradition 5 years ago and have made so many delicious soups. This year, nine fellow soup swappers gathered this past Sunday, a blustery winter day to swap delicious veggie goodness. Below are the recipes and soups that were made….and pictures of the fabulous festive day.

It all began 20+ years ago, in high school, when a boy met a girl and fell in love. Big parties, summer vacations, a big red jeep. Happiness came easy and was plentiful. Ah, but youth is wasted on the young and so the boy and girl went their separate ways.... Fast forward through college, first & second apartments, trips around the world, motorcycle accidents, moves to different cities, jobs and more jobs, starting a company, falling for two horribly wrong people which led to two broken engagements, then reuniting with each other, moving to Colorado, starting another business together. Yup, that about sums it up. That leaves us, Catie & Mike, 20+ years later. We saw the world apart & now are venturing through, exploring happiness together. From creating new tastes in the kitchen, to venturing to new countries, hiking, biking or skiing, touring craft brews, entertaining friends and family, to upgrading the house, or flipping and gutting an investment property, it's us, enjoying the ride. We're not making up for lost time, we're just not losing any more of it. And so our happy adventures begin...Follow us at happyandweknowit.com
