Here we are, still a couple of weeks before Thanksgiving, and yet we're already feeling behind schedule for holiday party-planning. Who's to blame? The retailers? Your mother? Or perhaps the people at WMVN (101.1 FM) for turning on the holiday tunes in October? Regardless of where the responsibility rests for our stress, you can make the next six weeks a whole lot easier on yourself by attending the Surviving the Holidays cooking class at the Whole Foods Market in Brentwood (1601 South Brentwood Boulevard). Hosted by Angelina Bertani, a certified holistic health counselor, this class will help you discover fresh, new and healthful foods that will impress your party guests and relieve some of the holiday anxiety (she can't do anything about that gift list, though). And for $25 per person, this just might be the best money you spend all season. Register online at www.wholefoodsmarket.com or through the customer-service desk at 314-968-7744; the course runs from 6:30 to 8 p.m.
