Last Friday Erik and I had some good friends over for a soup dinner party.  Each couple brought over a homemade crockpot full of soup to share, plus we had some appetizers and drinks, of course.

Appetizers included a carmelized onion tart, veggies and hummus and crackers and cheese.

We had wine, beer and pomegrante pear martinis. 

The three soups included a butternut squash bisque, a roasted chicken and wild rice soup and chili (made with tomatoes fresh from the garden).  All were delicious. 
For dessert I served pumpkin bars with cream cheese frosting.  We had no shortage of food.

After dinner the guys got a bonfire going and sat outside enjoying some beers. The gals thought it was a bit chilly ourside so we hung out indoors and chatted for a couple hours. 

It was the perfect, fun, cozy fall evening.
