Farmer’s Market Fun in February:

National Soup Day was Tuesday, February 4, 2020 which also happened to be the day for the LSU AgCenter’s monthly food demonstration. We used fresh pork, carrots, and kale from the Alexandria Farmer’s Market. It was a huge hit with the market vendors and patrons! This is a slow cooker recipe that is great for a cool day, or a day when you want to crank down your air conditioner and enjoy some comfort food. Enjoy!
