SOUP TASTING AND RECIPE SWAP DOOR PRIZE WINNER

Mrs. Maribeth Bedsole won the door prize given away by Abbeville Memorial Library during the Soup Tasting and Recipe Swap event hosted by Abbeville Memorial Library and the library staff.

Visitors were asked to assign points for the soups that were presented for tasting.  The soups presented for tasting were:   Crockpot Potato Soup, Chicken and Beef Vegetable Soup, Creamy Broccoli with Chicken Soup, and Santa Fe Soup.  All of the soups in the tasting received high marks! The Santa Fe Soup squeaked by as the winner receiving only a few points more than the other soups presented.  Everyone enjoyed soup, chips, dinner rolls, and crackers along with the fellowship. Everyone in attendance received several soup recipes to try out at home.  Recipes for the soups presented at the Library’s Soup Tasting can be found by clicking on the Photo Album tab at the top of this page.
