As clouds loomed over us at the Denver swap on Saturday, September 14 the close-knit groups of swappers still came together to catch-up, swap, and discuss how the rain is affecting our state. The sun came out and so did our smiles when we saw what glorious goodies we were going to walk away with that day.
So, I started a new job back in October that involves commuting and events during non-work hours and is keeping me pretty extra busy.
But when people ask me about the swaps and all the work that goes into putting them together I always say ‘oh – it’s not work at all – it’s the thing I do for fun!’
Which it is.
NorCO swappers met in September at Fort Collins’ newest independent book seller, The Eclectic Reader to mingle, sample, and trade.
Casey brought fresh cherry tomatoes from her garden, as well as banana bread and her mom’s “Monkey Butter”, a tropical spread of pineapple, banana, and coconut.
A beautiful morning for a swap in Denver this past Saturday at our favorite spot, West Washington Park Community Garden. A dozen swappers came with their tote bags, coolers, and baskets filled with amazing treats, sweet or savory…or both!
We had a fun time at Gay’s gorgeous home in the trees of Black Forest! She loved showing off her newly-remodeled kitchen, and there was plenty of room for our swappers to lay out their wares.
NorCO swappers were on the south side of Fort Collins for the August swap. We welcomed lots of new faces. For goodies, we had exquisite versions of blueberry jam, zucchini bread, and gluten free cupcakes.
