Freezer Meals class answers daily question
Donna Krug clr

“What’s for supper?” is the question asked nearly every day. Busy families may want to take note and get registered for a class led by a couple of my Extension colleagues on April 20th. The workshop, “Freezer Meals from the Meat Case” will be held from 5:30-7:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 20, at the Great Bend Recreation Burnside room located at 1214 Stone St.
Erin Petersilie, Walnut Creek District FCS agent, and Jamie Rathbun, Midway District FCS agent, will be the presenters. They will help you understand the different cuts, packaging types, weights and pricing in the meat section. They will also explain the various marketing claims including natural, organic, grass-fed, without hormones, etc.
Participants who register at our Barton County Extension office for $40 will prepare four main dish freezer meals to take home. Each recipe will serve 4-6. You will also learn what all the claims on meat labels mean. So you can feel confident that you are choosing the safest and most economical meat for your family. Class size is limited and we would like to have your registration completed by April 13 so groceries may be purchased. Registration is not complete until payment is received.
If you have a busy summer planned this may be just the idea to put some nutritious meals into your freezer and take some of the guess work out of your life. Call our office to register soon.
