Chef and Homemaker Lupe Perez
To a group of nearly 50 women, Lupe, a professional chef and homemaker from Sheridan Study Center in Houston, gave an encouraging talk on what it means to be a homemaker with many practical tips. The great takeaway was to shift our perspective as "martyrs" to "managers" of our homes in order to overcome any feelings of self-pity or resentment so that our homemaking becomes serving the people who make up our home. After the talk, Lupe demonstrated how to make three quick and savory - and gorgeous - appetizers: artichoke puffs, hummus, and a charcuterie board. We jumped in with her and worked together to make the appetizers. What fun!
