Welcome to the first official day of winter! After taking a break to tackle
Fall Semester’s Finals I’ve got another great simple soup to warm your bones and tickle your taste buds with this season. It’s been a blessing this year to have not just one, but two indoor fall/winter farmer’s markets to source delicious local food.
Sustainable food is not seasonal here in Lincoln, as these markets are made possible by collaborative efforts of Old Cheney Farmer’s Market, Community Crops, Open Harvest Co-Op, and of course all of the wonderful local producers! I was able to easily find some excellent squash, beets, hot peppers, carrots, mushrooms, and of course goat cheese! Keep an eye out for more recipes and producer spotlights of their awesome efforts they bring to market for the rest of us to enjoy!
