Celebrate African American Culture

School gets out early on Friday, February 15 and we have a treat for you!  Between 2-4 PM, we will be celebrating the contributions of African Americans to our wonderfully diverse culture.  We start at 2 PM with a storytime for the whole family.  Then at 3 PM, a presentation by Main Street Theater, "Speak of Me as I Am".  We'll experience the great African American Shakespearean actors of yesteryear.  This is an interactive family friendly preformance proving that Shakespear is indeed for ALL!
We will also have crafts, food, and quizzes as we learn more about Africa and the culture those early slaves brought with them.

Let's Taco 'Bout Food

Ah, food. So good there are about a million hashtags dedicated to it-from weekly trends (Taco Tuesday, anyone?) to the ever classic plate pic (like a selfie, but for your food), it doesn’t take long to find some sort of documented deliciousness on someone’s social media page. But what about food that’s not only picturesque, but oh-so-yummy? And more importantly, what about food that’s easy? I’m no expert, but here are a few titles that have not only helped me create awesome looking food (that yes, may have ended up on my Instagram) but have also resulted in cleared plates and full bellies.
 

Hispanic Heritage Month Celebrations

Eating healthy on a budget

We can all use more knowledge about tasty foods that keep us healthy, are not too difficult to prepare and save money compared to fast food or eating out. The Memorial Hermann Community Benefit Program will help us learn about foods that meet these qualifications on Saturday, Sept. 16 at 10:30 a.m. To register, please call us at 281-484-2036 or visit our events calendar.

Cooking, the Graphic Novel

Food Anatomy by Julia RothmanIf a cookbook could be made into a graphic novel, it would look something like Food Anatomy: the Curious Parts & Pieces of our Edible World by Julia Rothman. It's part food encyclopedia, part cooking lessons, and all easy on the eyes. The first thing I learned: the difference between New York, New Jersey, Chicago, St. Louis, and Detroit styles of pizza. My next lesson will be how to make cheese.
