Fuel for the Game: Pretzel Chicken Nuggets
By D. Kubovy

Watching sports on TV needn't be a parents-only activity. Share your love of the game with your kids, and rooting for your favorite teams can be fun for the whole family.

Prep the kids for an afternoon of sports by giving them an overview of the game, with an intro to the basics of play. That way, they'll have a better idea of what's going on while they're watching. "I think watching sports on TV is boring," said one mom. "But once my husband took the time to explain the game to me and the kids, I saw what he loved about it, and we were all able to get into it."

Munch and Crunch!
By Elizabeth Wells

Nope, that's not the sound of autumn leaves. It's a snacker's delight. Mmmm! - Microwave Caramel Corn and Nutty Bear Crunch snack mix. So simple you will want to make both while you're in the kitchen. The S. family said they made both treats following school one afternoon. "The cleanup was certainly easy, which I liked," said Beth S. "It was a fun way to spend a rainy afternoon."

Easiest Wings Ever
by Betsy Block

In our opinion, the key to great wings is almost over-salting them and almost over-cooking them. And for our kids, no sauces or blue cheese, thanks.

12 wings (about 2½ lbs)
2 tsp. salt
pepper to taste

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Lay the wings on a cookie sheet. Sprinkle the salt on both sides of the wings, 1 tsp. per side, then grind pepper on them to taste. (My kids don't like pepper, so if we want them all to ourselves, we know what to do.)

Bake for half an hour, then flip and bake for another half an hour. This ensures that both sides essentially fry in their own fat. I fully understand that if you make these, you'll probably eat them while cheering on your own home team. That's good -- I'm trying to appeal to a national audience here, after all. But maybe you could dedicate just one wing to the Pats ....
