Eating healthy can be easy and delicious. Join us to learn the art of healthy cooking and eating.

In this program we will learn how to make sourdough starter and bread. Come and explore a variety of healthy culinary techniques and skills through an interactive demonstration.

Participants will learn techniques of breadmaking, taste sourdough bread and take home a starter to make their own loaf of bread.

Discover how small daily actions and nutritional choices can help you eat better and maintain a healthy and sustainable lifestyle.

The program will be presented by Connie Wollenberg from the OSU Extension Office.

The program is designed for adults.

With the weather expected to turn really cold, this would be a good dish to fix when you get home.

Chili Mac

1 lb. ground beef

15.5-oz can chili beans

1/2 tsp. garlic powder

1 onion, chopped

14.5-oz. can tomatoes, petite

8-oz. can tomato sauce

1-1/2 cups macaroni noodles, small

1.25-oz. packet chili seasoning

1 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. pepper

1/2 tsp. cumin

8 oz. Cheddar or colby jack cheese

1 cup milk

Season ground beef and onion with salt, pepper and garlic powder and brown in a large skillet (or pot) until meat is cooked through. Drain fat then return to skillet.

Add remaining ingredients except half of the cheese (reserving one cup for later). Stir well, cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cook, covered, for 15 minutes; stirring occasionally.

Turn off heat and let skillet rest, covered, on the burner for 15 minutes or until liquid is absorbed and noodles are tender.

Stir again then top with remaining shredded cheese to serve.
