School is almost in session or is already in session. I only say almost because here in the pacific northwest we don’t start until after Labor day, but we don’t get out of school until mid June either. In a way it’s an amazing deal because guess what our summer only started a few weeks ago. We had nasty cold weather in June, many of us even turned our heaters on which is just wrong don’t you think???
This month is Family Fun Monty so hopefully if you’re back to school or not you can enjoy some family time before you delve to deeply into your fall work/school schedules. Family time is very very important.
What does your family do for fun? We’d love to hear about the exciting activities you participated in, meals you planned or places you attended with your family this month. As always, below are some ideas to help get the creative wheels turning in your heads:
- Hold a family board game night. Ask each family member to bring along their favorite game to challenge the rest of the crew.
- Hold a cooking competition! See which family member can make the best dish using one specific ingredient. Challenge each other and see who can use Hormel® pepperoni minis or Hormel® turkey pepperoni minis in the most creative appetizer or snack in less than ten minutes! Pizzas, salads…the ideas are limitless! Step out of your comfort zone and show your family who is boss in the kitchen.
- For a change of scenery on a rainy day, visit a local museum. Many museums offer free or discounted days for state residents so plan in advance to avoid fees! If you have small children, look for exhibits and museums that are kid-friendly so the entire family will enjoy the outing.
- Go camping! If there isn’t a campsite or park nearby, set-up the camping experience in your own yard. Hormel® Always Tender® products are perfect for a quick meal while camping out as they are pre-marinated for superb tenderness, juiciness and flavor, so there’s no prep time and no cleanup required. Try the brown sugar maple loin filet or apple bourbon tenderloin; there are over 40 varieties and flavors that will please every member of the family.
SO TELL ME
What do your families do for fun? Do you have any suggestions for families with small children? Do your prefer to spend time with your families at home or get out of the house to a specific location?
