Extension office offers holiday tips


The Ellis County Extension Office will host the educational program "Focus on the 'Stars' -- Cooking Healthy For the Holidays" at noon Dec. 10oat the Extension meeting room, 601 Main. Guests should enter the rear door from the north parking lot.

Donna Krug, Barton County Extension agent, will share ideas to reduce the large amounts of fat and sugar often found in holiday recipes and focus more on the "star" ingredients -- fruits and vegetables. The program will include recipes, tasting samples and nutrient comparisons for healthier versions of several holiday favorites.

Bring a lunch to enjoy during the program, if desired.

Register with the Ellis County Extension office, (785) 628-9430, to ensure adequate materials.
