Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner For HEALTHY HOLIDAYS?

17 11 2009

Laura Arnold of "At Table" -cooking instructor, restaurant owner, uncommon woman!

This Thursday we’re in for a major treat. And when I say a “major treat,” I’m talking about a red carpet roll out kind of put-your-party-dress-on and invite your best friend kind of major treat.  Because guess what?  Laura Arnold of At Table will be one of our guest speakers!

Pulled right from her website, here’s just a taste of who this amazing gal is.

“Laura Arnold expresses her love of food and people through her company, At Table. Laura’s vision is a “return to the table” where meals and entertaining are a warm and memorable experience.  Laura has worked as a caterer, a line cook and in local bakeries.  Today, Laura owns two restaurants in Austin with her husband, Russell. With At Table, Laura enjoys teaching others about the pleasures of good cuisine and connecting people through food and the arts of the table.”

Cooking up a few of her favorite recipes perfect for holiday entertaining, Laura will be sharing with us how we can provide nutritiously for our family during the festive seasons, make things ahead to save our sanity, and focus on enjoying the experience of entertaining!  And she told me that she’ll be doing something ridiculously delicious with strawberries, balsamic, sugar and cream.  Nobody should miss THAT!  Plus -yes, there’s another plus- Laura will be bringing gift certificates to Zuzu’s, one of the restaurants she and her husband own!  Be a lucky winner and come!

Our second guest is SGT Patton, an active duty, 3 time war vet with so much fitness expertise that it makes my head spin!  SGT Patton will share how to get started on an exercise routine or challenge yourself further in your current fitness level, offer examples of incredibly effective and efficient exercises you can do anywhere with little to no equipment, and debunk many nutrition and fitness myths that we are constantly bombarded by.  Plus he’s really cute so come just to oogle, if nothing else.  Well, and for the food, of course.

Having trouble finding a babysitter for the evening?  Bring your kid(s)! You don’t want to miss out on this fun, festive and informative event.  It’s going to be our best monthly meeting YET!
