Just a quick note- the soup swap was a success today!  We had five people come to the gathering, and two who left soup to be swapped by proxy.  After some munchies and chit-chat we started drawing numbers and picking our soups!  There were many to choose from- Italian Wedding Soup, Chicken Corn Chowder, Mushroom Soup with Sherry, Vegetable Beef, Thai Curry Butternut Squash Soup, Black Bean and Salsa, White Chicken Chili, Uptown Beef Vegetable and Chili. Hot DOG!!

I brough the Butternut and Black Bean soups.  The Thai Butternut is to die for- just use Thai curry paste.  The Black Bean soup is good with changes- I doubled the recipe and added a half a lime’s worth of juice, a handful of cilantro, probably 3x the cumin, about a tablespoon of jarred jalapeno slices……. I think that’s it.
