Fall Activities

What’s the best part of carving jack-o-lanterns for Halloween?  Family bonding time?  Displaying your beautiful/scary/creepy/sweet/funny masterpieces for the neighbors to see?  All that, yes.  But my favorite reason?  ROASTED PUMPKIN SEEDS.

Lucky for me, this year all three kids picked out pumpkins to carve, so there will be no shortage of seeds to snack on.  And, we are going to mix things up a bit and try adding a few fun flavors to our seeds.  I’m thinking sweet, savory, maybe even a spicy batch for hubby.  Check out these 6 delicious ways to prepare your pumpkin seeds this Halloween!

On Tuesday, October 21st, Stop & Shop is hosting their 6th annual Healthy Kids Summit at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro.   This FREE event, geared towards kids ages 6-14, focuses on the importance of nutrition and exercise to a healthy lifestyle.

UPDATED:  The Summit has been canceled due to impending inclement weather. 

I attended the event last year with my three kids, and they had an amazing time!  Their favorite part was definitely getting out on field with the Patriots players, but they soaked up some great information on the importance of nutrition too!  (Read all about our experience here).
