Here’s Renée telling us to get the hell out of her damn house. Haha, we all sure had a blast! I think you can feel all the happy energy here. Renée is so bubbly, it’s easy to perk up around her.
Thank you for another great soup swap, Renée! You rock!
Meanwhile, the first soup I picked at the swap was Sébastien cress & potato soup. He actually made 2 soups, and I had to jump on some awesome-looking French soup.
It was also nice to meet Sébastien after seeing so many cool pictures posted on All Over Albany. He took some cool soup swap pics too!
Can you say yum? Because I sure did! This was so tasty. The potato part was very silky, and the cress added a nice and light vegetal flavor. This was a great starter soup since it was so light and refreshing, but warm and satisfying at the same time.
I’ve been craving corn lately, and someone folks made corn chowder! I picked the lighter sounding one and OMG!! This might be my favorite soup so far! It is milky rich and thick, but not too creamy; the niblets of corn are sweet and pop in my mouth; overall the flavor tastes so fresh and so true to corn.
I’ve been doing my best to not completely house this quart, and am pleased to say that there is still a little bit left.
And the last soup we’ve been working on this weekend has been a sausage and veggie soup, made by someone else who had not made soup before. She did a great job! It tastes great and vegetable-y, accented nicely by the sausage. I love it when the veggies in a soup are soft but not mush. Yum indeed.
Now the hard part will be seeing how long I can make this soup last. So far it’s better than last year, I think because we have 12 quarts of soup and not 6. Pretty sure we housed all 6 quarts by the end of the week last year. This year I put some in the freezer, too. We’ll see how long they last.
