Monitor FCE unit met Jan. 23

The Monitor Family and Community Education Unit met Jan. 23 at the Cedars North Downunder Room.

Six members attended and Rhonda Moore hosted the meeting.

Moore gave the lesson “Fixing Funky Foods” in order to familiarize others with unusual fruits, vegetables and whole grains. She also offered recipes for using papaya, jicama and quinoa.

The group then prepared a fruit salad with jicama, a roasted root vegetable dish and a simple green smoothie with kale and chia seeds.

Jodene Fisher, president, opened the business meeting with the group repeating the Kansas FCE creed. Roll call was answered with “a fruit or vegetable I’ve never eaten, but would like to try.”

Mary Ellen Howell reported on the FCE Council meeting.

The next meeting will be held at 7 p.m. Feb. 20 at the home of Mary Unruh.
