Are you determined to be more organized in the new year? If so, is meal planning a part of that organizational plan? Planning meals in advance can alleviate that last minute "what's for dinner" stress, improve nutritional quality, and help balance the food budget. The technique of batch cooking in order to eat multiple meals over a period of time has grown in popularity over the years. However, you have to approach this task with thought and preparation. To learn more about the strategies behind make-ahead meals make plans today to attend the Master Food Volunteer, Knowledge at Noon session, “Get Organized - Cook Once, Eat Twice.” The program will be at noon Jan. 23 at K-State Research and Extension, Wyandotte County, 1216 N. 79th St., Kansas City, Kan., (just west of Kmart). The cost is $7. To register call 913-299-9300 or email email@example.com.
