Are you looking for quick, easy, and healthy meals to prepare, even when cooking for one or two?

Then join us on Sept. 24 for the “Dinner Tonight” Healthy Cooking School. This event will be held at the Waxahachie Senior Citizens Center, 122 Park Hills. “Dinner Tonight” will focus on cooking for one or two.

Doors open at 5 p.m., with the cooking school beginning at 5:30 p.m. and concluding at 7.

From 5-5:30 p.m. samples of foods from the cookbook and “single serving foods from HEB” will be available for tasting.  

The cooking school will feature demonstrations of two easy and nutritious menus that can be prepared in 30 minutes or less. Participants will receive a cookbook consisting of an additional menus and recipes.

The registration fee is $20 per person for non-members of the Waxahachie Senior Citizens Center and $15 for members.   

You can register at the Waxahachie Senior Citizens Center or by calling 972-825-5175. Seating for this event is limited. The first 50 to register will receive a goody bag, with items from HEB, Texas Beef Council, and many other businesses.  There will be door prizes awarded throughout the evening.

There are many groups that conduct cooking schools, however, the “Dinner Tonight” Healthy Cooking School has a unique niche.   

The recipes demonstrated and in the cookbook are cost effective, easy to prepare, and fit into a healthy meal plan. The event is targeting people who often do not cook, as they have one or two in their household.  Everyone can prepare healthy foods, even when cooking for one or two.  

HEB Waxahachie is sponsoring the event, with  the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service.

So, plan to attend the Sept. 24 “Dinner Tonight:  Cooking for One or Two” by making your reservation today!
