Menu Planning & Cooking Shortcuts

mealplanningEffective meal planning can save both time and money.  Discover tips and tactics for both at a free program offered at several Dayton Metro Library locations this spring and summer.  "Menu Planning & Cooking Shortcuts" is presented by Andrea Deckard, a former HR professional who now devotes her career to family budgeting education services.

Her free library program focuses on:

  • The Importance of Meal Planning: Learn why and how meal planning can transform your grocery budget, but also your daily routines and the dreaded "witching hour."

  • Beginner and Advanced Meal Planning Tactics: The program will walk you through the different phases of meal planning and teach you the ins and outs of two different "schools of thought," so that you can come up with a meal planning plan that works for you!

  • Time-Saving Cooking Strategies and Shortcuts: Get practical help with how to make the most of the time you spend in the kitchen, making healthy and delicious meals in a fraction of the time!

The program takes place at the following libraries:

 Tues., June 4, 6:30-8:00 p.m. - Miami Twp. Branch Library, 496-8944

Mon., June 17, 6:30-8:00 p.m. - Huber Heights Branch Library, 496-8934

Thurs., July 11, 6:30-8:00 p.m. - Northmont Branch Library, 496-8950

Sat., Aug. 31, 2:00-3:30 p.m. - Miamisburg Branch Library, 496-8946

Deckard regularly appears on WDTN, the Dayton NBC affiliate as well as a featured blogger in the Cincinnati Enquirer blog network, Cincinnati.com. Andrea can be heard weekly on the WGRR morning show sharing savings tips and great deals.
