May 9, 2012 May Events
May, of course, is full of events. Mother’s Day is sneaking up on us, and the round of graduation parties is edging toward us. It’s also a great time of year for someone who loves to eat. The asparagus is out in quantity, there are strawberries that smell like strawberries, and you can eat your fill of spinach and peas.
I’ll be hosting two events tomorrow, May 10:
Healthy Cooking with Whole Grains, 10:00 am, Roane County Public Library (Spencer branch)
– learn what exactly a whole grain is and how to identify one in the grocery store
– taste new whole grains
– make a simple one-pot dish featuring whole grains
Enjoying and Cooking Fresh Herbs, noon, Roane County Public Library (Spencer branch)
– sample different herbs
– learn to make herb vinegar
– taste an herb salad
– learn how to make a wonderful easy herb vinaigrette
Thanks to the Master Gardener Leader, we’ll have plenty of herbs to sample and play with. Oregano plants will be available for those interested in starting their own. Hope to see you there!
