Speaker Series :: Drug Addiction Epidemic in United States

Triangle : 01-28-2017

On January 28th, We were lucky to have Jane E. Albers - The Board President of North Carolina Foundation for Alcohol and Drug Studies - as our speaker in drug addiction awareness seminar. Jane, who has 34-years of practice in the field, shared her experiences with listeners. In her presentation, Jane first emphasized the destructive nature of various substances including opioids, marijuana, and alcohol; then she warned us about the increasing rate of prescribed drug addiction. Jane mentioned the biological impacts of these chemicals on our brain and highlighted the threat of these substances pose to our family and friends. She finished her speech with current treatment modalities pointing out that drug addiction is treatable brain disorder and professional help is always available for patients. After the speech, Jane joined us at our luncheon.

Cooking Class :: Cooking Class of Sep 24

Triangle : 09-24-2016

We enjoyed getting together at the first cooking class of 2016 Fall Term! It was so nice seeing our friends from last year, and making new friends at this session.First of all, we prepared meat loaf which was filled with potatoes, carrots, and peas. We cut the loaf by slices and served with mujaddara. Mujaddara is a middle eastern rice with lentil and garnished with caramelized onions. We prepared our rice with bulgur (cracked wheat) as healthy choice. Caramelized onion on top of the rice made a big difference in taste as well as appearance of our rice.

Finally, We prepared chocolate creamy pudding garnished with coconut and hazelnut. The aroma of lemon in the pudding made it remarkable. This dessert is very refreshing for summer, and it will be the favorite dessert for the little ones.
