Winter Soup Potluck Benefit for Slow Food Des Moines

Have you had it up to here ::holds hand way above head:: with winter?

We can’t make the dreary, cold weather go away, but we do have a warm, cozy, delicious suggestion for beating the winter blahs:

Join Des Moines Slow Food on Sunday, February 28 for their annual Soup Potluck!

Like to take a walk in the woods? Walkers (the woodsy kind, not the “Walking Dead” kind 😉 will meet at 3 pm at the lodge in the Walnut Woods State Park (pictured below) for a family-friendly trek led by Hike It Baby. Dress warmly — hike happens rain (or snow) or shine!

walnut_woods_lodgeSoup-er heroes. Participants will gather at the Walnut Woods Lodge 4 – 6 pm for the soup potluck.

Make a batch of your family and friends’ favorite soup, stew, or bisque; and taste other cooks’ best soup efforts, too.  Not a big soup-chef? People would love to taste your signature bread, side dish, or dessert recipe, too.
