Week 8: Dining out; preparing for social gatherings, holidays, etc.
Here is an overview of what will be covered in this class:
We are faced with many decisions when dining out. Before we even read a menu, we need to choose a restaurant and plan the time we want to eat. Then once we arrive, we may need to wait for a table while the aromas of food surround us. Or once seated, we watch (and smell) the food being delivered to customers around us. All the while we are aware of the sounds our hungry stomach is making!
This class discusses how to approach dining out so you don’t “blow it”. You may be dining away from your house to eat at a restaurant, a friend’s house, to attend a family function or to grab a meal on the run. These are challenges that face everyone. The group will discuss and share tips on how to make better choices, even in the most challenging of circumstances.
