As a last-minute thing, I went to a soup party today after volunteering at the garden. I’m not a huge soup fan, but I did eat some delicious sweet potato soup and I will be going back for more. It’s a monthly thing in Austin – search for Community Soup Party-ATX on Facebook to find out more – hosted by the love Katie of Hot Love Soup. There was music, dancing, and I ran into some old friends and made some new ones. A huge success!
This is the band. They were playing Brazilian music – maybe sambas? People were dancing salsa to it, but it wasn’t a salsa beat. Anyway, they were very good.
My friend Zany! There was a juice truck in the lot – this was held at East Austin Succulents, and I loved all the plants! – and I got some delicious apple juice, fresh squeezed. Zany got a smoothie which was also delicious.
It was BYOB – bring your own bowl! And spoon, too, please.
Soup table #1.
Soup table #2. They had tons of varieties – everything from curry-based soup to vegan sweet potato soup. (yum! I’m not vegan, but I love vegetables and I almost always go for the vegan/vegetarian options.)
Dancing! I didn’t actually end up dancing any-the wood chips on the ground seemed challenging-but I was impressed by the couples that braved it.
This is Katie, who hosts the soup parties. She was incredibly welcoming and gracious. Everyone else was following her example-people who so warm and friendly!
Breaking out the cascerones for Easter!
The band brought in an accordion.
This little cutie is probably a pug/lab mix and does not approve of beet soup.
