Enjoy Easy Recipes in a Flash Using Your Microwave

Each dish takes about 1 minute and a maximum of 3-4 ingredients!

We had quite a crowd gathered for the Cooking Demo on Wednesday, 11/15/17. The Chicken & Dressing and Homemade Chicken Soup were made in the Microwaves in the Activity Room. Residents LOVED sampling the soup and Chicken & Dressing (which tasted like Thanksgiving Dinner). The recipes were distributed to all attendees and they offered to pay "the teacher" to cook for them and asked why we don't do this activity every week. A great time was had by all and many stayed after the class was over to chat and visit. Great fun for a Wednesday afternoon. The recipes are easy to make, with 3-4 ingredients each and just right for a little snack for those in a hurry.
