As of press time Wednesday, there were 23 tickets still available for sale for the ever popular A Taste of Soup and Art Exhibit set for this Saturday, February 3 beginning at 11 a.m.
This year, the decorations, created by Susan Dunn, were inspired by Eric Carle, author of A Very Hungry Caterpillar.
This year’s recipes are slow cooker recipes or can easily be adapted for the slow cooker. There are two “seven-can” soups this year, one a beefy vegetable and the other a chicken taco soup.
Two of the soups will appeal to the health conscience. The Chicken and Corn Chowder will be gluten free, but is still delicious. The Skinny Fajita Soup is light on calories but not on flavor. The King Ranch Mac & Cheese hits a home run as a comfort food while the Creole Chicken Gumbo Soup will take your taste buds to the Big Easy.
Artists on hand this year will include Pam Harris, a cookie decorating artist; Carey Deaton, potter of handmade clay pottery; Janis Clayton, painter; and Debbie Houston, creator of wire/bead embellished serving utensils.
Each guest will get to sample all six soups, cornbread muffins, crackers, tea, and dessert.
Cost of tickets are $10 each, and all proceeds go to support the Carrollton North Carrollton Public Library. Donations are also appreciated. All of the funds raised will be used at the Carrollton-North Carrollton Library for things the county budget does not cover.
