Soup Swap! Guest Post from Savoring the Thyme

4 Comments | Written on October 21, 2011 at 5:00 am , by

I think it’s time for a “Blog Swap!”  Today The Daily Dish is swapping with Savoring the Thyme!  The wonderful Jennifer Leal created this post and I have a recipe over on her blog.  Check them both out and leave comments!

We decided to make this a “soup swap” and post wonderful and warm fall soups on each others blogs.  Jennifer also has a fascinating series on her blog called “10 Things You Don’t Know About ___” where she highlights unknown tidbits about fellow food bloggers.  You can check out her blog to learn a few facts about yours truly.  Take it away, Jennifer!


My name is Jennifer Leal and I have something to admit: I am feeling a bit giggly and tingly today due to the fact that Kristina asked me to do this soup swap with her. I was already a fan of her blog and then when I met her in person, I was a bit smitten because she is so sweet and authentic. We had a fun chat this past spring and I am hoping to get to see her soon.

To top it all off, she asked me if we could swap ’10 Things You Don’t Know About Me’ and I thought it was brilliant! This way we get to know each other better and hopefully you get a giggle or at least a smile when you read our lists.  Be sure to stop by Savoring the Thyme to read her answers and check out her soup recipe as well.  Thanks so much “Daily Dish” readers!

10 Things You Didn’t Know About Jennifer Leal

1. I was born with and had very blonde, almost white hair until I was three and then it turned light brown.

2. I broke my middle finger (dang volleyball) and wore the cast a few more weeks longer necessary.

3. I have scars on my lower left leg due to a poorly placed coffee percolator placed on top of the refrigerator. How many 2 year olds would resist pulling a cord that hangs in front of the fridge door?

4. I have decided to avoid any waxing as it often goes awry.

5. My biggest pet peeve is disrespect.

6. I was an air force brat and did more traveling in first 5 years of life than most do in lifetime.

7. I skipped kindergarten.

8. Each year in high school, I sang ‘O Tannenbaum’ and other Christmas songs in German to the principal.

9. I could live on cheese, coffee and fresh bread.

10. I believe in having fun no matter the task and smiling at strangers.

You can’t deny it: This time of year makes all of us yearn for soups and all the warmth they provide. Considering my son and husband are a bit obsessed with beans right now, I am taking advantage of this and tossing those high fiber babies into just about anything I can get my hands on.
