Retirement Planning - 403114

IT’S NOT JUST ABOUT MONEY
PLANNING FOR A PURPOSEFUL RETIREMENT

While many pre-retirees plan and calculate their financial resources to ensure an adequate nest egg to fund their retirement, almost none invest time and energy planning the non-financial aspects. This 2-part interactive seminar, for those contemplating retirement, examines eight key elements that ensure that your retirement decision is not only financially viable, but emotionally and personally satisfying as well.

Explore such questions a “How will I spend my time when I am no longer working fulltime?” “How will my family and social relationships change?” “What is my attitude toward the transition to retirement?” “How do I find meaning and purpose in this new stage of life?”

It’s not too early to begin this next planning phase in your life!

Hands On Cooking - 403124

FALL 2018 DEMO COOKING SERIES

PICKLING FOODS WITH FERMENTATION
Pickling food can be done with fermentation. Fermentation is an historical way to preserve food. It allows food to “sour” which allows the food to stay safe to eat for months when refrigerated. Don’t be scared. Fermentation isn’t a complicated process and with Julie as your guide, you can’t go wrong!
In class, you will sample several different vegetables pickled by fermentation, make sauerkraut, and ferment another vegetable yourself. Vegetables like radishes, beans, cucumber, and jalapeno peppers will be options. After this class, the vegetables at the Greendale Downtown Market will be calling your name. Participants will receive the food to finish fermenting at home, multiple recipes and informational handouts. Please bring a quart and 1/2 quart canning jar. Also available in class for extra $1.00 each.

MUG MEALS
When you like to eat but don’t want a lot of dishes to clean up, this is perfect for you. We will explore single serving options that are just what you need. Breakfast, lunch, or desserts that can be microwaved right in a cup! Easy and tasty! Real food meals that can help navigate the busy holiday season. They are also a fun stocking stuffer when given with a mug. An assortment of recipes like French toast, meatloaf, eggs, brownies, peach cobbler, and more will be available and you will have a chance to try one of them for yourself during this demonstration. Easy enough for young cooks. Consider bringing your younger child for only an additional $15.00 charge!

Hands On Cooking - 403126

COOKING UNDER PRESSURE
Is your schedule busy? Is your time limited? Is there pressure to get meals on the table? Many people love the idea of cooking quickly which is why they turn to pressure cookers, to help them get meals on the table fast. The truth of the matter is that pressure cookers have gained a reputation through the years, but with the new electric pressure cookers, opinions are changing. Come join this introductory pressure cooking class where you will learn some general tips of use, as well as receive some inspiration for recipes that you will even be able to sample. Come alone, with a friend or a spouse (each person must be registered though) to learn how to have fun while cooking with pressure, relieving the pressure that you use to cook under in the kitchen. Please bring your personal pressure cooker along with you to the class for a “hands-on” experience. If you do not yet own a pressure cooker, please make that known at the time of registration so accommodations can be made.

WOK IT OUT
The wok was traditionally a pan that originated from China. It was meant to be a versatile pan, but then it gained the reputation of being the stir fry pan. The reality is that there are endless possibilities of delicious dishes that you can make in its depth. Come to this “hands-on” class to “wok” through the tastes of several scrumptious meals that you can make as you work to spice up the foods that you cook in your wok. There will be 6 woks available for use in class although you are welcome to bring your own.

Staci Joer's Cooking - 403130

BALSAMIC VINEGAR WORKSHOP
Made from grapes, balsamic vinegar is known for its rich flavor and velvety black color. It's fermented in wooden barrels, much like wine, and the taste of balsamic vinegar intensifies the longer it is aged. It is wonderful on salads, fabulous with breads and has a host of uses for cooking. Tonight you will explore the world of Balsamic Vinegar and sample some recipes that feature it as a main ingredient.

Join Staci while you sample...Boston Lettuce with Tomato, Balsamic and Blue Cheese; Seared Sea Scallops with Balsamic Drizzle; Roasted Balsamic Cauliflower; and Strawberries with Balsamic Vinegar.

TACO TUESDAY
Today you are going to explore the taco and think outside "the Bell". You will explore the history of the taco including how Mexican silver miners likely invented the taco, how Mexican Americans in the Southwest reinvented it, and how businessman Glen Bell mass-marketed it to Anglo palates via the crunchy Taco Bell shell. You'll experience some recipes for new and delicious tacos that are sure to please.

Enjoy samplinge...Cuban Picadillo (Fragrant Stew of Ground Beef, Tomatoes and Olives) Served on Crunchy Tacos with Avocados; Pabellon Criollo (Venezuelan Shredded Beef) with Black Beans and Rice and Plantains on Soft Shells; and Chicken Tinga Tostadas.

IT’S GETTIN’ CHILI
Chili is the perfect winter food. It's a hearty and satisfying stew containing chili peppers, meat (usually beef), and often tomatoes and beans. Usually every family has their favorite, but Staci is here to change that and introduce you to some "new classics" plus a couple of side dishes that finish out the meal.

For your sampling pleasure...Turkey Chili with Butternut Squash; Vegetarian Chili; Staci's World Famous Beer-laced Chili; Gluten Free Cornbread; and Super Creamy Cole Slaw (Hint--it's made with heavy cream).

FABULOUS STEAKHOUSE-STYLE HOLIDAY GET-TOGETHER
Steakhouses are great (particularly if someone else is paying) because you get to indulge yourself in a borderline dangerous amount of beef in the classiest of surroundings. But that's only part of the story. The unsung heroes that make any steakhouse visit complete are the sides and desserts. So, tonight Staci has put together a full classic steakhouse menu for you to make at home. It's more intimate and fun to eat with family and friends at home, and by staying home you can treat everyone to a great meal without taking on a second mortgage!

I'll prepare...Beef Wellington with Madiera Sauce; Hasselback Potatoes with Herbs; Creamed Peas; and
Flaming Cherries Jubilee with Ice Cream.

Jodi's Art Series - 403521

ABSTRACT WATERCOLOR PAINTING TECHNIQUES
Have you seen the latest watercolor trend of alcohol ink on tiles and wondered how to create that look yourself?

Broaden your watercolor experience as we experiment with a new watercolor technique (similar to alcohol ink on tile). This method is more accessible and affordable as we work with YUPO® paper. Learn why watercolor artists love this paper, tips for using it, techniques using plastic bags, salt, blow-wind or dripping, and what a different and vibrant effect your work will have when done on this paper.

When painting on YUPO® paper, the watercolors are not lost in the paper...they float on top and playfully interact. When the colors dry, they are as vivid as they are when wet! Come experiment with us and explore the possibilities of what can be done on YUPO® paper!

Jewelry Making Fun Copper Sheet Metal “Cut” Pendant
This class will introduce you to the tools and techniques you will need to create and finish jewelry from a copper sheet of metal. You will receive step-by-step instruction on how to create metal cut jewelry by sawing (using a jeweler’s saw), piercing (using a hand drill), filing, and sanding the metal to create this “tag-style” pendant. Learn to add a jump ring to the pendant to finish so it will be ready to hang on any chain, ribbon, etc. you might have at home.

Jewelry Making Fun Boho Wrap Bracelet
Add a touch of boho chic to your outfits with this boho bracelet. Using memory wire, ribbon, fabric scraps, charms, beads and wire, make your outfit standout with the unique design of this bohemian inspired wrap. Together, twisting and wrapping techniques complete the bracelet with just the right amount of cuteness. Let this bracelet show your fun and quirky side!

BLOCK PRINTING
Block Printing is one of the oldest types of printmaking, and has been around for thousands of years. It is essentially using a carved material covered in ink to transfer an image on to paper, fabric, wood, canvas or any other materials you might want to experiment with at home. Block Printing can be done with wood, linoleum, rubber, or any other materials. We will be working with linoleum. You will find that images that are printed with this technique are typically much bolder than other types of printmaking. As this is done by hand, the ink sits on the surface which adds a raised texture to the paper.

For new and continuing students, in this two-night class you will draw, design, and carve your designs on to a block. On the second night, you will use your design block to print on rice paper.

A Blank Canvas…A Stroke of Genius Acrylic Painting
If you aspire to continue to advance your acrylic painting techniques, or would like to explore this as a new media, sign up for this class to develop your creative artistic spirit! Jodi will offer new tips and tricks to help you fill your canvas in a limited amount of time!
What a great opportunity for residents with similar interests to gather in this “hands-on” art class while uncorking your inner artist and creating something of your own. Best part is… everything you need to create your own work of art is included for your use in class (canvas, pallet, water-based acrylic paint, and brushes), and you get to take your painting home at the end! All supplies provided or feel free to bring your own brushes and paints for more variety in this class. Students must have prior experience working with acrylics.

HANDMADE HOLIDAY ORNAMENTS
Begin a tradition with gifting a “signature” holiday customized ornament for friends and family….or continue creating these signature ornaments for gift giving. Here are three great options to begin this “memory-maker” of the holiday season!
Using basic popsicle sticks, a little hot glue, some fabric and embellishments, you will create a pair of skis with poles, a wooden sled, and a mini Santa wreath. Learning these basic steps, you can make more for your personal decorating or that special gift giving tradition.
