Soup night could be the soup Nazi’s greatest nemesis.
Here’s an idea I stole from a colleague: Host Soup Night.
When you write out your Christmas cards, include a standing invitation to your weekly or monthly Soup Nights.
My friend does this every year on Saturdays during January and February. She does not require RSVPs and guests know that when they arrive, they will be warmly greeted for a night of soup, bread, spirits, and camaraderie.
If they want additional fare, they know to bring it, as most would anyway. After all, it’s poor manners to go to someone’s home empty handed.
Mangia & Enjoy!
btw: What do you do to break up the monotony of winter?
