Join us for Baking for 1 or 2 at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, March 28. Spencer County FCS Agent Allison Lewis will discuss baking for one, two, or a few. This lesson is valuable for those moving out on their own as well as empty nesters needing to reduce the yields of their favorite recipes.
At 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, April 25, Sheila Fawbush, Shelby County FCS Agent, will present Exercise Anytime and Anywhere. Exercise doesn’t require a gym membership, transportation, or fancy clothes; move right here, right now! Movement oils all our joints and eases pain by releasing feel-good endorphins and providing more oxygen to the brain. Try a variety of exercises during this lesson.
Cooking Under Pressure will be offered twice on Wednesday, April 17: first at 10:00 a.m. and repeated at 6:30 p.m. Rachelle Sharar, Shelby County FCS Program Assistant, will present this program. Electric pressure cooking pots are popular with many cooks today. Taste delicious recipes while learning what you can do with these cooking tools and how you can do it.
Also mark your calendars for Canning 101 at 6:30 p.m. on June 6, repeated at 10:00 a.m. on June 7.
