Our tour ended back on campus in the Home Ec lab. The Arkansas Cattlewomen setup several stations with recipes and ingredients for us to cook. I didn't get to stay and finish my dish because I had to be home for the girls after school. But, I decided to make it for dinner! It got a thumbs up from the family. I can't wait to try some of the beef recipes we received as well.
