My kids have survived their first day of school and so have I. I do have to admit it was bittersweet for me. With twinkies (twins) at home, I was pretty happy not have to entertain them or feed them 8 times a day anymore. However, the house was eerily quiet without them and I found myself staring at the walls, looking at the clock and waiting for 3pm. This prompted me to get in the kitchen and create a fun snack to celebrate their first day. The result?
First Day of School Banana Boats
1/4 cup blackberrie
1/4 cup raspberries
1/2 cup granola
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips or coconut
1-2 cups of Olympic Dairy Vanilla yogurt
Needless to say, I was happy to have my kids home and hear all about their first day of school. They loved their snack and even asked for it again tomorrow. I think I’ll make my banana boats my new first day of school tradition.
Here they are on their first day of school.
What was your first day of school like without your kids like? Do you have any first day of school meal/snack traditions?
