Feeling overwhelmed with the holidays approaching? Join University of Illinois Extension for a festive Fall program focusing on preparing for the holidays! “Let’s Talk Turkey: Meal Planning for the Holidays” will go through: shopping for different types of turkeys, how big of bird you need to feed family and friends, including all five food groups in your meal, catering to guests health needs, meal timing, and holiday tips to help maintain and not gain weight during the holiday season. This program is a hands-on workshop where participants will practice food safety techniques and prepare seasonal side dishes, an appetizer, and dessert.

The workshop will take place at the Macoupin County Extension Office from 6:30pm-8:00 pm on Tuesday, November 14th. Participants will also receive recipe books, do some taste testing, and entered to win a fun “Gifts from the Kitchen” holiday gift basket.

Come join in for a fun-filled evening of learning and preparing for the holidays. Register online at or by calling the Macoupin County Extension office at 217-854-9604. Please register by November 12th. There is a small registration fee to offset the cost of food supplies.
