Prepare nutritious, quick meals at Freezer Club session May 30

Friday, May 10, 2019

Hood County Freezer Club is a way to learn healthier cooking habits.

“Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service in Hood County offers this program to help you organize the preparation of three easy and nutritious main dishes in a single session,” said Kelli Brown, AgriLife Extension Family and Community Health agent in Hood County.

The program is from 5-7 p.m. Thursday, May 30 at the Granbury Housing Authority, 503 N. Crockett St. The $40 fee includes ingredients, recipes and containers. Participants will make slow cooker peppered steak for stir fry, cilantro lime chicken for tacos and pulled pork for sandwiches.

Single members are welcome to bring more containers if you’d like.

“You will still receive all of the food that the $40 fee covers,” Brown said. “I will provide tips/tricks for you to regulate those portion sizes as you cook for one at home! Such as packaging prior to freezing, or what to do with your leftovers after you’ve prepared the food.”

The session will cover healthy eating, food safety, measuring, packaging and freezing meals and provide more online resources for participants.

“Bring your friends or come meet new friends. You just need to RSVP by calling my office at 817-579-3280,” Brown said.

“If you do the prep ahead of time, all you have to do is pop it in the oven or on the grill and it fits in with today’s busy schedule that we all ace,” Brown said.

Contact Brown for more information at 817-579-3280 or email kelli.brown@ag.tamu.edu.
