When you hear someone say "Chop Chop" -- I usually turn around and start to walk faster (hurry up, I'm thinking!)...But in Maryland, Chop Chop has a new meaning -- chop chop and cook...healthy! ChopChop Maryland is a new initiative to encourage fun and healthy cooking (and eating) for families. My kids and I were thrilled to be invited to attend an event with Maryland's First Lady Katie O’Malley, where she helped launch Chop Chop Maryland.
Starting October 1, and every month for the next year as part of this project, ChopChop Maryland will be sending out delicious, easy recipes that families can make together, using Maryland ingredients. The recipes are being developed by Sally Sampson, Founder and President of ChopChop Magazine. The first recipe, for a delish apple crisp, was released October 3.
If you want to get the recipes and be eligible for prizes, just text CHOPMD to 43186. You’ll be registered in the program, and will receive texts when new recipes are available. (Message and data rates may apply.)
The recipes and the text messages are also available in Spanish. Sign up by texting CHOPES to 43186.
The recipes and the prizes are free. If you have any questions, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
As a busy mom of one picky kid (one's a bit more adventurous), I'm always looking for recipes to get me out of our proven-menu rut. I think Chop Chop will help!
