Soup with Marcia 3/1

Soup with Marcia 3/1

March 1, 2018 1:30 pm

Mar. 1, 1:30-3 p.m. Fee-$3
Soup season is here and Marcia Raftery wants to share her soup recipes with you. If you’ve never made your own, you may be surprised to discover just how easy it is to prepare soups. They require very little work and can provide nourishment for an entire week. Unfortunately, many people are tempted to buy canned or otherwise prepared soups instead of making their own. The problem with store-bought soup is that it doesn’t taste as good as home-made. Canned and prepackaged soups are also made with low-grade ingredients, and usually very high in sodium, as a means to mask the flavor of sub-par ingredients. Don’t miss this fun taste of soup with Marcia. February will be Pasta Fagioli and the March soup is Kale. Yummy!
