Six habits in six weeks — this has been the challenge we have given everyone in our eight-county Northern Kentucky area over the past six weeks.
The challenge ended Sunday, Oct. 9, so now it is time to turn in those forms so you have a chance to win one of the nice prizes. Be sure to turn in your forms by 4:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 14 using the online submission at www.ca.uky.edu/boone or in person at the Carroll County Extension Office. You cannot win unless you turn in your forms.
Upcoming food programs
This is a reminder of the “Seafood Know-how” program Monday, Oct. 17 and “Easy Freezer Meals” on Monday, Oct. 24. Both are being taught at 6 p.m. here at our office. There is no charge for either program. We invite everyone interested to attend. If you have questions or want more information, stop by or call our office at (502) 732-7030.
Diabetes Support Group
The Diabetes Support Group meets regularly the third Monday of the month from 5-7 p.m. at the Extension office. Ruth Kingkade, RN and Certified Diabetes Educator with the Three Rivers District Health Department, is now working with us.
We always take time to discuss personal concerns of those attending. We also have a short program on topics of concern to those who have diabetes. The next meeting is 5:30-7:30 p.m., Monday, Oct. 17. We will have a short half-hour meeting to discuss diabetes and then take in the “Seafood Know-how” program at 6 p.m. I invite all interested residents to attend.
Local resident Jim Graves, local producer and cheese-maker, will be teaching an all-day cheese-making workshop 10 a.m.-3 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 3 at the Extension office. If you want to learn how cheese is made I hope that you will consider attending this workshop.
Graves will teach participants how to make butter, to make and handle buttermilk and different cheese cultures, why temperature is important and a wealth of more information about cheese-making. We will be making three different cheeses. You will also receive a packet of cheese information and recipes for making many cheeses.
Lunch will be provided. Cost of the session is $12. Please register early because we can only take 20 participants. Send payment (checks payable to Carroll County Extension Service) to 500 Floyd Drive, Carrollton, Ky. 41008.
Glass cooktop care
If you use a glass cooktop range or built-in glass cooktop, be careful when you are doing candy making and high sugar content foods this holiday season.
Sugary spills left on a glass cooktop will leave pits in the ceramic glass. If you happen to spill syrup or sugar on the cooktop, wipe it up immediately. As soon as the cooktop is cool enough, clean it thoroughly.
Remember to purchase cleaners made specifically for cleaning glass cooktops not soft scrubs, baking soda or any type of abrasive cleansers or “just any” types of wipes either.
Use soft cloths or towels specifically labeled as “safe to use on glass” towels.
Use care in cooking and caring for your glass cooktops and you will be rewarded with many years of a beautiful smooth, shiny cooktop that will give you years of service.
