The first weekend of spring (party!)

Every year my mom throws a soup & bread party. Her and a friend each make 4 soups and the guests bring bread, cheese, beverages, and sometimes spoons. Its my favorite kind of party, filled with excellent conversation and delicious things to eat.
This year our party went green and guests who came with their own mugs for soup were emailed an e-cookbook of the 8 different soups. This year we had vegetarian carrot-ginger and mushroom-barley soups. There was also a potato-garlic, cowboy soup (its sweet potato based!), and my moms famous chicken chili. Those were my favorites, and really the only ones I can remember right now.
The best part might actually be the leftovers we are always left with...I highly recommend the drunken goat cheese if you happen to be raiding my fridge.
Ok, so I know most people don't actually listen to the mixes, but if you EVER listen to one, make it this one.

  3. I love the playlist! It reminds me of summer. In my hometown of Ferndale, they have this "dream Cruise" every year with classic cars and sometimes a carnival, but the oldies station sponsers it so there is oldies but goodies playing non-stop for a few days.

    I love this party, cheese!!!! Omg, this made me hungry and I just ate. I love soup too! The homeade stuff sounds so much better than the junk i get from the can. :P
