With Halloween just around the corner, it means it is costume time, and King Kullen Grocery has partnered up with TruMoo Milk to host this year’s Halloween Costume Contest. Tis the season to celebrate this spooky holiday with DIY or unique costumes that can be shown off door to door while trick-or-treating. Plus, it can get some extra attention this year when entered into King Kullen’s contest.
Three winners will be chosen this year based on the costume and how TruMoo Milk is incorporated. The grand prize winner will receive a $300 King Kullen gift card and the two runner-ups will receive $100 King Kullen gift cards. The contest runs through the month of October and until Thursday, Nov. 5.
To enter, contestants need to submit a picture of themselves, their children or their pet in a Halloween costume while also incorporating TruMoo Milk in the shot. Contestants are even encouraged to play around with PhotoShop to include a picture of TruMoo Milk in the entry. TruMoo images are available on King Kullen’s Facebook page: https://goo.gl/XlJvRq.

In addition to Halloween, October brings new produce to incorporate into your weekly menu. Spaghetti squash and butternut squash are just two types of delicious vegetables to start adding to your plate. One cup of cooked spaghetti squash is only 41 calories and contains vitamin C, B vitamins, potassium and magnesium. Here’s a how-to on how to cook them: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/199917670934666625/. When baked, butternut squash is only 82 calories and offers vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin B-6 and magnesium.

Pumpkins are the staple vegetable during this month and season. Be sure you’re selecting the perfect pumpkin with these tips. Pumpkins should be firm all around, not mushy. The orange color should be consistent throughout and should have no brown spots. Brown spots mean bugs have been chewing on the pumpkin. Choose one that feels the heaviest and has a stem that’s both strong and green. Use your pumpkin and this recipe to make a Classic Pumpkin Soup to warm up with on a cold fall day.
