Every year, since Jenn & I go started dating, we go to the Empty Bowls at VC, which usually lands on the Sunday during the week of Valentines day. The bowls are handmade and donated. People “purchase” the bowl and the meal that goes along with it. This year it was $15/ bowl. Of course you get to pick the bowl and the soup you’d like to fill it with. This year there was Tortilla Soup from Halepaska’s (a local bakery), chicken soup from Chick-fil-a, Minestrone Soup from Olive Garden & Chili from Main Course (a local catering business). My favorite was the chili and the tortilla soup. However, I don’t quite understand the use of sliced carrots in chili… *shrugs*
