WISE NOTES FOR CONSUMERS

Healthy cooking school scheduled

By Tanya Davis | Published Wednesday, August 10, 2016

Grab your friends and join us for food and fun at the Dinner Tonight Healthy Cooking School, which is hosted by Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service and the Dinner Tonight Planning Coalition.

The event, which focuses on “Fast, Fresh and Fabulous Meals for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner,” is scheduled for Thursday, Sept. 1, in the lecture hall of Weatherford College Wise County at 5180 U.S. 380.

The cooking school begins at 6 p.m. and concludes around 8 p.m. Dinner Tonight will feature demonstrations of easy and nutritious breakfast, lunch and dinner menus that can be prepared in 30 minutes or less. Busy moms and dads are encouraged to take advantage of the cooking school to gain new ideas. The eat-at-home aspect of Dinner Tonight reinforces research, which shows children who sit down to regular family meals consume more fruits, vegetables and fiber, as well as tend to perform better academically.

The registration fee is $20 per person in advance, which includes a cookbook consisting of additional menus and recipes; recipe samples; goody bags; and door prizes. Call the Extension office at 940-627-3341 to reserve your spot. Space is limited.

Food demonstrations will be conducted by local experts, and door prizes will be given throughout the event with the grand door prize being a Kitchen Aid 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. Our goals are to promote family mealtime, teach families healthy meal planning and food preparation techniques and promote Texas agriculture.

Sponsors of the cooking school include: Texas Beef Council, First Financial Bank, Weatherford College, Wise Health System, Fit-N-Wise, Fit Y.O.U.T.H and Brookshire’s.

For information, call the Extension office at 940-627-3341.
