Join us, Santa and Mrs. Claus to relive the adventure of Chris Van Allsburg's classic, The Polar Express, on a rollicking 90 minute holiday excursion through the Blacktone River Valley.  It's a thrill for children of any age, with  chefs serving hot cocoa and cookies, a uniformed conductor and engineer, holiday sing-a-longs and gifts for all of the kids.  They'll feel as though the've stepped into the pages a strory book.

This journey takes place on a variety of dates between now and December 18th.  For more info., go to

With the cooler weather moving in, we wanted to share a belly-filling, heart warming recipe for Pasta e Fagioli, that we borrowed from our friend Trish at the FriendsFoodFamily blog. . It really hit the spot. We thought it was so good, that we prepared and served it to the children in the Head Start Programs we work with, and they agreed.
