Dinner Tonight

Mark your calendars now to join us for food and fun at the Dinner Tonight Healthy Cooking School Road Show, which will be presented by Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service.
Our demonstration recipes are cost effective, easy to prepare, and fit into a healthy meal plan. In today’s fast-paced lifestyle, nutrition and exercise do not have to be on the back burner. Dinner Tonight is designed to help busy families enjoy healthy and delicious meals, and we even provide fitness tips to help people become more active.
During the cooking school, everyone will see demonstrations of quick and easy-to-make recipes from the Dinner Tonight Cookbook. County Extension experts from seven counties will conduct the food demonstrations. Door prizes will be given throughout the event. Each participant will be provided with a copy of the Dinner Tonight Cookbook and Texas Beef Council recipes in the registration bags. The unique cookbook contains 12 menus which include the entrée, sides, and dessert. This cookbook contains six bonus recipes and is perfect for busy families. We are targeting busy people who still want to make time for meal preparation and feel good about what they are feeding themselves and their family. Our goals are to celebrate family mealtime, teach families healthy meal planning and food preparation techniques, and promote Texas agriculture.
