North Shore Crossing

Working in Beverly, I’ve been watching the development of North Shore Crossing for quite some time now….specifically the progress being made on the new Whole Foods Market.  While I don’t ever imagine doing a “full shop” at the Whole Foods, I’d be lying if I didn’t admit that I’m excited about the ability to run in and grab some of their nice array of prepared foods for the afternoon rush of “son juggling” to/from different hockey rinks.  Thatcher attends school in Rockport and plays for a hockey team out of Peabody….which means evening practices up there.  Finn attends a school in Beverly where I work and practices out of Talbot rink at O’Malley.  So, there’s a lot of back and forth up/down Route 128 and coordinating of schedules.   With hockey season kicking into full swing the exact same time school was back in session, we’ve been dropping the ball big time in regards to meal planning.  We are far too guilty of feeding the boys on the fly and the choices have been less than healthy.

Whole Foods will be a nice option for afternoon snacks and later dinners….or at least I hope….until crock pot weather is upon us.

Whole Foods Market, Beverly is scheduled to open on October 18th.
