Soup Night - Recipes For Creating Community

Does it ever seem to you that in this crazy world of instant connections with others, whether it's through text, email, or computer, we are actually more disconnected that ever?

I recently read an article that said people don't even call each other much anymore, that they prefer texting. And it is pretty said to get a birthday wish from a friend or loved one via text instead of hearing a loving voice on the phone.

So what does all that have to do with soup?

I came across the most wonderful book called Soup Night, Recipes For Creating Community Around A Pot Of Soup. All across the country, people are getting together to create and build a sense of community by sharing bowls of soup that they have cooked in their kitchens.

Inviting people to share a pot of soup, whether they are friends or neighbors you hardly know, can foster a new sense of a shared community, togetherness, and even hope for a better future.

That is the miracle of Soup Night.

Author Maggie Stuckey shares her philosophy and good advice about how you can create your own Soup Night and start benefiting from a new found sense of community.

Whether you get together with the people in your apartment building, or people on your street, Soup Night can bring together families, babies, seniors, and singles, to share in getting to know each other, and form new relationships.

The book offers more than 90 delicious soup recipes for all the seasons of the year. There are also recipes for salads, breads and desserts that will round out your Soup Night menu.

The book is also filled with beautiful pictures that will inspire you to make your own delicious soups to share with others.

I absolutely love this book and the idea that it inspires. How wonderful it would be if more people started a Soup Night in their own communities. How much good it would do for ourselves and others in our world.

This is not a sponsored post, just something I thought was pretty great and wanted to share with all of you.
