Need some new meal ideas?
Cheryl Walker
Milam County Extension Ageng

Everyone needs a few new meal ideas from time to time and the Dinner Tonight Healthy Cooking School on June 3 will give you lot of new ideas. Participants of the cooking school will receive a cookbook with easy, quick, nutritious meal ideas. They will also enjoy an evening of recipe tasting.

County Extension Agents will be preparing three different meals during the program— beef meal, fish meal and pork meal—for everyone to taste. You will also get food preparation and meal planning tips to promote healthy eating habits.

Don’t miss out on the Dinner Tonight Healthy Cooking School Road Show, which will be presented by Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service. Our Milam County event will be held 6-8 p.m. Tuesday, June 3at the First United Methodist Church Family Life Center, 112 N. Travis Street in Cameron. The doors will open at 5:30 p.m.

Sign-up for the cooking school and enjoy lots of food ideas. The recipes in the program are cost effective, easy to prepare, and fit into a healthy meal plan.

In today’s fast-paced lifestyle, nutrition and exercise do not have to be on the back burner. Dinner Tonight is designed to help busy families enjoy healthy and delicious meals, and we even provide fitness tips to help people become more active.

The cost of the event is $25 in advance. Pre-registration is required one week prior to the event. Space is limited to the first 45 persons.
