Members of the Greek Cowboys of Coppell 4H club participated in this past Sunday's Food Challenge workshop. The worked with other Dallas County 4Hers to create a chicken, vegetable, rice and tomato sauce dish. The members were bummed that they could not try some of their creation due to food safety concerns. They are excited to possibly enter the county food challenge to be held later this 4H year.
