Pumpkin Painting Saturdays

Where: Down To Earth Garden Center, Eau Claire WI

What: Bring the family for Pumpkin Painting, every Saturday, 10/10 thru 10/31! This year, we are signing families up for private 1/2 hour time slots to paint pumpkins, in order to clean between groups. For $2/pumpkin, you can grab your choice of mini pumpkin and let your creativity run free! Each pumpkin will come with a paintbrush that you get to keep, in order to keep the process sanitary. Fun for kids of all ages!

Food & Exercise Ideas

3 Ingredient Roast


  • 1 3-4 lb boneless beef chuck roast
  • 1 pkg Lipton onion soup mix
  • 1 20 oz bottle Dr. Pepper (you only need half of this bottle for the recipe)


  1. Place roast in the bottom of a crockpot. Sprinkle onion soup mix over the top. Pour in half of the bottle of Dr. Pepper over the top. Place lid back on and cook on low for 6-8 hours.
  2. When roast is done, remove and allow to rest for a few minutes.
  3. If you want to make gravy, use a mesh strainer over a pot and strain the liquid from the crockpot into the strainer, reserving the liquid only.
  4. Measure half cup of flour with 2 cups of cold water and combine in the same pot as the roast drippings. Whisk over medium-high heat until gravy is thick, about 10 minutes.
  5. Serve the gravy over the roast and if you like mashed potatoes.
