I am personally a big fan of the Ronald McDonald House Charities. When my oldest son was very young, he had a fractured skull, and the closest Children's Hospital was over an hour from our home. The Ronald McDonald House was a warm and welcome place for my family during a stressful and scary time.

On Saturday, June 27th, the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Idaho is hosting a virtual cooking event called, "Cooking Alone... Together." This class is such a fun way to support a great cause. Last year I took my first cooking class, and before the virus shut everything down, I was participating monthly, and I loved it. It's one of the things I was missing the most about being locked down.

This class is hosted by Mark Anderson, whom you may know from the Food Network's, "Grill Dad's," or his multiple appearances on the Today Show. He'll be on Zoom, and when you purchase your ticket, you'll get a link to the call, and you'll be able to pick up pre-measured, individually packaged ingredients and, most importantly, wine!

The three-course meal is a grapefruit burrata salad, wagyu gold-grade ribeye steak, potatoes, asparagus, and grilled pound cake. Sysco and the Idaho Beef Council are providing the food. Tickets are $175 per couple, $100 for an individual, and additional meals are $75. The deadline for buying tickets is June 23rd.
