Cooking with Friends is a way to learn healthier cooking habits. In addition, this method of preparing and cooking meals will promote more family meal time, save time and money, and teach individuals the basics in freezing. The session will cover healthy eating, food safety, measuring, packaging and freezing meals and provide more resources for participants. Participants will be guided through the preparation and freezing of four easy and nutritious main dishes before the sessions are over.

The program will be from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. on November 7, 9, 16 and 30 at the Cameron First United Methodist Church Fellowship Hall. The $40 registration fee includes recipes, handouts, and four freezer ready meals for a family of four. That’s only $2.50/person a meal. (Containers will be provided to divide for families of two freezer cooking)

Last day to come and register is Monday, Nov. 6.
