As the holidays approach, gathering round the table for a special meal with
family and friends can be a source of joy and feed both body and soul.
Cooking late into the night before that meal, however, can greatly diminish
the pleasures of the table. Cooking too far ahead can decrease the quality
and safety of your food.
Together with our local health department, we've put together some
information on "Cooking Ahead for Holiday Meals." You're welcome to use
this material in your programs, news articles, etc. A copy is on the Web at:
(Be sure to check the Pumpkin Ice Cream Pie recipe at the end -- 5
ingredients, 5 minutes! And no worry about your pumpkin pie staying at room
temperature too long -- this one would melt before that happened!!!)
Also, for a "fun" article for Thanksgiving, check out T-U-R-K-E-Y Tips at:

Best wishes for a healthy holiday season!
