This is day 2 of swap week, you can see day one here.
Today I'm going to tell you about a fun recipe swapping idea I started the beginning of this year. A group of us get together once a month and bring a recipe to share with everyone. We bring some already made for everyone to sample. Then they get to take a recipe card so they can make it on their own.
There are usually around 10 of us on most nights. It has been so much fun. The first time I did it I was explaining to my Husband what a recipe swap was. His reply was, "It's a freaking buffet, I wanna go!" Since half the people that come are family he usually gets a sample too.
We usually have a theme which makes it a little easier to come up with something. Here is a list of the themes we have done so far.
- Side Dishes
- Crock Pot
- Salads- (This month)
- Main Dishes
- Secret Ingredient (the month before we'll each submit an ingredient and then randomly choose one.)
- Christmas Recipe
That is the line up for the rest of the year (if everyone agrees). It has been so much fun on the plus I now have a bunch of awesome recipes! Give it a try with your friends, Let me know how it goes.
