We headed into Red Robin last week and my husband tried out the Tavern Double burger & he most definitely approved! It is slightly smaller than the rest of their signature burgers, but with the bottomless fries, too, it’s a nice size so that you don’t feel like you’re overeating as I can often feel like after finishing one of the larger burgers.

Make sure to sign up for the Red Robin Royalty Club to find out about awesome discounts like this in your area. And check out our list of restaurant deals and discounts available right now for more ways to save when dining out.

#NaturalDifference – Visit to Olympic National Park & a Creamy Apple Dip!

Waterfalls on Quinault Rainforest Hike

We are a family who loves to travel & explore in the great Outdoors and some of our favorite places to travel to are National Parks as they offer up such outstanding beauty you can’t find anywhere else. There is so much variety in the National Parks around the country to give you such unique & different experiences, from the amazing vistas of the Grand Canyon to the tropical lushness of the Everglades to the crystal blue waters of Crater Lake.

Living here in the Northwest, we are blessed with many great National Parks & National Recreation Areas, National Historic Sites  or Monuments & more to check out.   However, there are educational & beautiful National Parks all over the country. All you need to do is head to the National Park website to find a National Park/Historic site near you. You’d be surprised at how many locations there are in your state – I knew we had some great ones here in the NW but was surprised by some of the sites I didn’t know about.

Coming up, September 27th is National Public Lands Day & it’s one of the Free Admission Days to a National Park, too, if you are wanting  to visit a National Park on a budget. They will offer one last fee-free day for 2014 for the National Parks on November 11, Veteran’s Day, as well.

Here are some of the popular National Parks in the Northwest:

  • Mt Rainier National Park (WA)
  • Olympic National Park (WA)
  • North Cascades National Park (WA)
  • Fort Vancouver National Historic Site (WA)
  • Crater Lake National Park (OR)
  • Oregon Caves National Monument (OR)
  • John Day Fossil Beds National Monument (OR)
  • Lewis & Clark National Historic Park & Trail (OR)

Olympic National Park & Lake Quinault:

Quinault Rainforest Waterfall

My brother, sister in law & niece were in town this last month from southern Florida & they were really wanting to check out one of our area’s National Parks on a hike, so we decided to take them over to the Olympic National Park to check out Lake Quinault & the Quinault Rainforest area, which is the southern end of the Olympic National Park. It’s just a few hours away from the Seattle/Puget Sound area & a short drive from the coast if you’re looking for a day trip idea when you’re vacationing on the Washington coast.

Quinault Rainforest Hike

The Quinault Rainforest & Lake Quinault area were filled with large, moss-covered old growth trees, waterfalls, & nice, shady trails to keep us cool in the heat of a hot August day. Even though there were some people out hiking, it never felt crowded even though it was a weekend day in the summer so it was a great place to explore.

World's Largest Sitka Spruce Tree

They even have the World’s Largest Sitka Spruce Tree, right along the banks of Lake Quinault. It’s just a short 2-3 minute walk off the side of the road.

Lake Quinault Lodge

Our visit was not complete without a quick visit to the historic Lake Quinault Lodge, a beautiful National Park lodge. It was built in 1926 & offers the same classic beauty that you expect from National Park lodges & hotels. The views of Lake Quinault were just incredible from the lodge & the grounds.

Our hike in the Quinault Rainforest area was the perfect way to spend time as a family, letting the kids enjoy the forest & get some good exercise on our several mile hike, while exploring a new area of the country. That’s what I love about visiting the National Parks – not only are you entertained by the natural beauty & making fun memories together, but you’re keeping your family active and healthy by hiking & exploring the parks together.

Make a Difference in your Local or National Park:

We all appreciate & love the beauty of our local & national parks; however, we can’t take that beauty for granted. The parks systems and their employees work very hard to keep the parks beautiful (I know this, as my husband was a Washington state park ranger for several years) but they need our help, too, so it’s so important to teach our kids about the importance of taking care of our beautiful parks. We visited quite a few parks this year and we’ve been teaching our girls about always packing your trash out – not only does it keep the park clean, but it also protects the wildlife in the park. On our Olympic National Park trip, we also made sure to bring reusable water bottles & when we had to bring a few extra plastic water bottles for back-up, we brought those home to recycle. Just stash them in a bag in your car & take them home with you.

Now that we’ve educated our kids about the importance of clean parks, they are always on the lookout for trash they can pick up. We keep extra plastic bags in our car & try to keep one in our backpack & then we’ll throw trash in there to clean up. I realized that we also need to keep some gloves in there, too, so we feel more comfortable with the kids picking up the trash.

Make a Natural Difference Photo Contest:

They are also teaming up together to provide a fun giveaway contest to help encourage folks to head out to a nearby local or national park.

All you need to do is snap a photo at your favorite park (local, state, national) & submit it into the Make a Natural Difference Photo Promotion contest. You have until October 8, 2014, to submit your favorite photo.

Here’s what you can win:

  • Sony Digital SLR Camera
  • 18-135mm Lens and carrying case

Shutterfly Giveaway Winner:

We also hosted a Smuckers Fun Pack giveaway earlier, which included a $100 Shutterfly gift code plus Smuckers & Adams Natural Peanut Butter products & a peanut butter stirrer. Our giveaway winner was Kim & she has already confirmed & is being sent her giveaway prize.

Creamy Peanut Butter Dip:

Creamy Peanut Butter Dip

If you’re headed out to spend the day at a national park or even just a few hours at a local park, it’s always fun to pack a picnic lunch to enjoy somewhere along your hike or at picnic table you find at a pretty spot. We always make sure to bring plenty of snacks with us, too, since our girls are always hungry, especially after a good hike. The trick is to bring healthy snacks.

Our girls love apples & peanut butter, so I thought I’d do a different spin on it for a sweet treat for after a good hike. You’ll just want to keep this Creamy Peanut Butter dip cold if you bring it on the hike or picnic with you since it contains cream cheese – either keeping it in a container in your small cooler or an insulated bag.

Head on over to check out our Creamy Peanut Butter Dip as a fun way to get your kids to eat their fruit!

Did you head to any national parks this summer – we’d love to hear tips on where you went & what you thought! What are your favorite national parks to visit?

Carpinito Brothers Farms – Local Produce Supplier for Safeway Stores

 

Carpinito Bros Farm

Have you ever wondered where exactly your produce comes from in the grocery stores? I typically expect that a fair amount of of produce is coming from out-of-state, but I do know that some of the produce coming to the grocery stores is local. I don’t know about you, but I have always thought that the local produce in the Northwest meant it came from central or Eastern Washington or Oregon. It wasn’t until just recently that I learned that Safeway stores are using popular, well-established, local farms, much closer to their store locations to supply produce when in season. This is great news for shoppers as it means that the produce is on your local Safeway store’s shelves within just a few days of being picked instead of being trucked from several states away.

Last month, I had the opportunity to head to the Kent Valley to get a tour of the Carpinito Brothers Farm. I’ve only been to Carpinito Brothers farmstand once before, but I’ve always heard wonderful things about their produce (& Sia is a huge fan!), so I was excited to check it out. Love the convenience of their farm stand right off Hwy 167 in Kent, too. Carpinito Bros is also known as a great pumpkin patch destination, with it’s convenient location and fun kids activities.

Carpinito Farms has been partnering with Safeway stores all throughout western Washington to provide them with produce for over 35 years – the farm’s been in business around 50 years, so they have partnered with Safeway from almost the beginning.  The  farm tour was led by one of the owners, Mike Carpinito, and his son. Mike has grown up on the farm & now his sons & his brother’s sons work in the business alongside their fathers. It was very obvious what a love they have for what they do & wanting to provide the best products for their customers.

Produce from Carpinito Farms

My biggest take-away from this event was the fact that by partnering with local farms close to their stores, Safeway is able to work with these farms to bring produce quickly to their stores, within a day or two of being picked in the fields. That’s great news for shoppers, to know that the local produce was picked from the farm just a day or two earlier, which means longer-lasting produce once you get it home.

The Carpinito Bros Farms is one example of a long-standing relationship Safeway has with a local farm, as Carpinito Bros supplies Safeway stores throughout Western Washington with high-quality produce (from Bellingham down to Centralia & more). There are several local farms they work with right here in the Puget Sound area. I’m excited that Safeway is working recently to educate shoppers on where that local produce comes from, so you can know & expect that freshness level.

Here are some of the produce items that Carpinito Brothers Farms provides for Safeway (& which you can look for in your local Safeway store)::

  • Radishes
  • Broccoli
  • Cauliflower
  • Squash
  • Peppers
  • Celery
  • Cilantro, Parsley, Basil,
  • Kale, Chard, Spinach, Lettuce varieties,
  • Fennel
  • Turnips
  • Sweet Corn
  • and much, much more….

A few ways to tell where the produce  is from in your local store::

  • Ask an employee at the store, preferably someone working in the produce section
  • Check the twist tag or stickers on already bagged produce items   – Carpinito Bros Farms’ label name is North Country Brand
  • Look at the packaging or the crates the produce is in – you may be able to see where the produce comes from if they keep any of their produce in the boxes/crates or packaging from the farm

Here are a few interesting facts I learned on my farm tour of Carpinito Farms:

Planting Seeds at Carpinito Farms

I’ve always wondered how farms can plant seeds so quickly – check out this cool machine which can plant hundreds of seeds in just mere minutes.

Fennel at Carpinito Farms

I’ll admit that I’m not the most adventurous vegetable eater – I have my favorites & I don’t often veer away from those except when out to eat, so this was a good experience for me to check out all the different vegetable varieties they grow. Check out fennel – I had never tried this before, but if you like black licorice, then you will like fennel.

Italian Parsley at Carpinito Farms

Did you know that parsley is one of the healthiest vegetables (herbs) you can eat? This was something new to me, thanks to Mike Carpinito.  Parsley is a great vegetable to grow yourself, as well as now look in the stores for it, so you can take advantage of all of it’s health benefits.

Kale at Carpinito Farms

Kale has become such a hit that farmers have had a harder time finding kale seeds! Kale is a very frugal vegetable to grow as you can cut off the majority of the plant and it will grow back its leaves within a few weeks to pick again. You can get 3-4 pickings from kale, so it really does produce quite a bit in one summer (great option to grow in your garden if you’re thinking of ideas).

Vegetable Watering System at Carpinito Farms

Once the vegetables are picked from the fields, they are then washed thoroughly & packed either in the reusable plastic crates or in cardboard boxes for the more delicate vegetables. The vegetables are then packed up on trucks & driven to the nearby Safeway warehouse, where they then get distributed to the local stores. All of this happens in one day, so they will arrive to the warehouse by the end of the day it was picked & be distributed to local stores within another day.

Those are just a few fun facts for you that I learned about growing vegetables at the farm & the process of how they provide Safeway stores with the produce. Definitely be on the lookout the next time you’re in Safeway & see which produce you can find that is coming from local NW farms. Once I left the event, I headed to a larg Safeway store  and what do you know?

Sign in Safeway for Carpinito Bros Farms

I spotted this sign in the produce area, where they had posted several signs with the different farms they work with in Western Washington. This is very helpful as you can know that what you’re buying is direct from the most local & trusted farms in the Puget Sound area.

Make sure to look around your local Safeway & see which signs you spot, showing the farms that Safeway has partnered with for years. 

And don’t forget to follow Carpinito Farms on Facebook as they’ll share details about their upcoming pumpkin patch, as well as any specials on veggies & more!
