Back To School Menu!



Some of you are excited about back to school time...and some of you are sad.  

No matter which you are, it's coming and you better get prepared!  I decided that this year, we needed a fun back to school menu for your little ones.  Everything is simple, can be prepared in advance and will leave you plenty of time for hugs, kisses, and "how was your day"s.

For breakfast, your kiddos will love this...

Chocolate Monkey Bread is such a hit in our house!  You can make it in advance and just bake it off that morning.  This would be such a fun breakfast and hopefully motivation to get your little ones out of bed bright and early!

For their lunchbox...pack them one of these easy (and delicious) sandwiches...



Ham & Swiss with Pesto Sandwiches

All of these sandwiches go perfectly in a lunchbox!  Just add in a little fruit, maybe some carrot sticks and some popcorn and a little bite of something sweet (my kids love Hershey Kisses!) and you're set!


Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake Cookies will be the perfect after school treat for your kiddos!  And guess what mom...they only have 5 ingredients!  Super simple and so yummy!


Honey Mustard Brisket Tostadas will be waiting in the slow cooker for your family when dinner time arrives.  I think supper should be simple on the first day of school...and this is very simple!

I hope all of your kids enjoy their first day of school!  This is my last year to have two preschoolers...and I am going to soak it in!  (Look for the depressing post next year when I send Kensington off to kindergarten and I'm a sobbing mess...).

Have a blessed day!

Love these ideas! Those cookies are my absolute favorite cookie, and I make them all the time for others and always get the most compliments on them.

I will so dread the days of sending my kiddos off to school too! Any mine are only 2 and 9 months! Thanks for all the yummy ideas!

my third starts school this year and I am in denial that I will not have her around to talk with during the day! so many momma's are excited for back to school, but I will be drying my eyes in the car. I don't even want to think that my oldest will be graduating in seven years! time does fly by!

I am definitely trying that monkey bread! I have a pork chalupa slow cooker recipe that would be a perfect dinner for the first day of school, or any day after school. Thanks for reminding me to pull out that slow cooker. My oldest is only four this year, so we're soaking up this fun, carefree time before we have to focus on school next year. =)
