Grab your friends and join us for food and fun at the Dinner Tonight Healthy Cooking School, hosted by Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service and the Dinner Tonight Planning Coalition. The event is Thursday, Sept. 5, in the Weatherford College Wise County lecture hall, 5180 U.S. 380.
Doors open 5:30 p.m. so participants can visit exhibits and vendors. The cooking school is 6 to 8 p.m. Dinner Tonight will feature three easy and nutritious menus that can be prepared in 30 minutes or less.
Registration is $20 per person, which includes a cookbook consisting of an additional seven menus and 25 recipes, recipe samples, goody bags and door prizes. Call the Extension office at 940-627-3341 to reserve a spot.
Shelly Laaser, director of child nutrition with Decatur ISD, and Rachel Adams, medical scientific liaison for Nestle, along with yours truly and Connie Shawn, representative for Better Living for Texans Program, will conduct food demonstrations from the cookbook.
Participants will see the following presentations: “Getting the Most from Your Food,” “Food Safety Myths Exposed” and “Add a Little Herb and Spice to Your Life,” from Haley White, clinical dietitian with Wise Regional Health System and Extension agents from surrounding counties.
Door prizes will be given with the grand door prize of a KitchenAid Stand Mixer donated by First Financial Bank.
We are targeting busy people who still want to make time for meal preparation and feel good about what they are feeding themselves and their family.
