Janice Burgess, Melisa Anderson, Chalreles, Burgess, Brandy Sullivan, and a little helper creating the Master Meat Sauce.
The UT Extension, Cannon County TNCEP Program is providing an opportunity for a hands-on experience to plan, shop, and prepare healthy, low-cost meals for your family.
On Tuesday, March 8th, we discussed the importance of the USDA's MyPyramid to determine an individual's dietary needs as well as using the MyPyramid as a resource to plan healthy meals for a family.
The hands-on cooking included creating a Master Meat Sauce in a large quantity so that it can be frozen in recipe portions. It is a basic tomato based meat sauce that could be used in various recipes such as spaghetti, chili, tacos, etc.
Freezing the prepared meat sauce saves time for busy families, especially during the week, by pulling it out of the freezer and simply adding appropiate seasonings for the intended recipe.
Come join us for our next classes that will be held at Woodbury Grammar School Cafeteria beginning at 6:00 p.m. on the following dates:
• March 15: Simple Solutions
• March 22: Habits of Healthy Families
