Wegmans grocery store with some other homeschool families. It was their Eat Well, Live Well 4th Grade Tour, but we included 3rd through 5th graders. We had a great time, learned new things with hands-on activities and ate food - best kind of field trip in my book! We sampled foods from the bakery, produce department and cheese shop. Unfortunately, there were no samples in the fresh meat & seafood department. :o(
Two items we sampled in the bakery were so good, I've been buying them. They are the Marathon Energy Loaf (pictured on the left) and the 5 Grain 4 Seed Multigrain Bread (pictured on the right). All of us moms who bake our own bread were so jealous that the multigrain bread was moist and not as dense as the loaves we have baked. They weren't giving up the secret, though. The marathon bread has both fruit and vegetable, in addition to all the seeds. YUM-O! I've had them toasted, buttered, cream cheesed and around a delicious BLT. If you have a Wegmans in your area, give it a try!
- I am a very lucky woman with a husband and son who are smart, witty and entertaining. Our son, B, attended public school for two years, and then we embarked on a new adventure in the Fall of 2010 - homeschooling. We don't have all the answers, but we know B and this has been the best thing for him. I blog to preserve our stories and our memories, share recipes, vent and ramble on about our crazy, yet blessed, life. Would you care to follow along?
