Mountain Palace - Seaweed Special and Cooking Lessons!

The special this weekend at Mountain Palace is pork with seaweed and rice. Now for the good news! Lacy started Happy Healthy cooking class last Sunday with four participants who insisted it was wonderful! They were ordering rice cookers after the session. She taught Chinese salad, chaofan, and chicken/cashew/celery for the first day. Lacy demonstrated from preparing the vegetables to the actual cooking. Then the Happy Healthy students cooked and enjoyed the best part, eating their own Happy Healthy creations. It was fun! So now we will be doing Happy Healthy Cooking Class on Sundays at 11:30. If anyone is interested, please call Mountain Palace in advance at 724 717-8614 or cell 724 288-3872 to make arrangements. We charged $25 which included the meal. Traditional Chinese Exercise and Acupressure lessons are still on at the Ligonier YMCA on Saturdays at 11:00. Pressure point focus this week is upon visual acuity. Fee is $15 to the YMCA for members or non-member walk-ins. Mountain Palace is coolgila! Eleven miles north of Ligonier left off of Route 711 onto Creek Road directly across from Mirror Lake. Friday 6 to 9, Saturday 2 to 9 and Sunday 12 to 6.
