Too busy to prepare a delicious, made from scratch meal for your family every night?
No worries. The N.C. Cooperative Extension’s Families on the Fly series can make meal prep a snap.
The series, which includes four classes, is open to all ages. Each class is from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, beginning Aug. 31, at the Currituck County Extension Center, 120 Community Way, Barco.
Participants will learn the ins and outs of different meals that can be prepared ahead of time or are ready to eat when you get home. Classes are hands-on, and participants will leave with prepared meals and ideas for meal planning.
