The Roundup -

Lesson Offered on Preparing Freezer Meals to Save Time


Would having ready-to-cook (or reheat) meals at home be a good deal? Would you be less tempted to go out to eat if you had frozen meals at home? Meals eaten away from home often are more expensive and less nutritious than home-prepared meals. Simply remove a package from the freezer the evening before you plan to use it, thaw in the refrigerator and reheat or cook.

This lesson on “Making Freezer Meals with Lentils, Chickpeas and Split Peas” will introduce you to the steps in making freezer meals using pulse ingredients. It will be held from 6 pm to 7:30 pm on Monday, September 26 at the McKenzie County Extension Office, 205 6th Street NW, (located in the brown “McKenzie County” building directly behind the Courthouse.)

Pulses are an excellent source of fiber and folate and a good source of protein and iron. They are also gluten-free and a low-allergen food. Pulses include chickpeas, lentils and dry peas.

Participants will have the opportunity to take home a start of a freezer meal and to sample several freezer meal dishes prepared with pulse foods. Several freezer meal recipes will be included. The class will be free-of-charge.

Pre-registration is requested prior to attending. Please contact the McKenzie County Extension Office at 701-444-3451 or email [email protected] if you are interested in participating in this program. Pre-registrations should be received by Thursday, September 22.
