An Excuse to Cook at Home

By Allison Majewski November 28, 2014

dining-inAfter the Thanksgiving holiday, I will return to work only to go home and whip up a couple dishes using recipes from the CAFB Kitchen. Leftover turkey from Thanksgiving will be perfect for the Turkey, Sweet Potato & Kidney Bean Chili. And I’m even going to try my hand at the Black Eyed Peas, so that I’m a pro when New Year’s Day rolls around.  The CAFB’s recipes make it easy to cook at home so who’s cooking with me?
Like the CAFB, the American Association of Family & Consumer Sciences is making cooking at home easy. Celebrating the inaugural Dining In Day on December 3rd, the AAFCS is encouraging families and friends to gather and prepare healthy meals in the comforts of home.  Just follow these simple steps:
Step 1: Complete their online sign up form.
Step 2: See who’s participating all over the world by viewing this interactive map.
Step 3: Encourage others to join you—it’s the perfect excuse to Instagram and tweet pics of your food!
Step 4: Cook up something delicious on December 3rd!
Remember how jazzed you were in September after watching local chefs cook up easy, healthy meals during the food bank’s  Northern Virginia Hunger Summit?  Well, get jazzed again and participate in Dining In Day…and get new recipes too!
