Hands up if you’re trying to make back to school fun!
I know there’s a lot of stress around school this year but I’m trying to celebrate the kick off of another year of education – especially because we’ll be doing this one at home! Yup, we’re officially homeschooling this year.
Not having to go back on the school’s schedule – or with the school’s community – definitely makes things different this year, so I’m making an effort to incorporate some new traditions and treats. And what’s more classic than a cookie bar?
What are you being for Halloween this year? So far, we’ve got a purple dinosaur and Frankenstein’s monster. (And I’m hoping it doesn’t change at this point, since I bought the fabric to make them!)
As much as I love Halloween, it can be a little hectic. Aside from making costumes, we have two trunk or treats to prep for, the preschool costume parade, and classroom party – not to mention Halloween itself. Oh, and all the “real life” stuff happening this month too.
The latest round of the Improv Cooking Challenge was Nuts and Caramel – so perfect as we’re going into the holiday season! I decided on a fun dish that could be either an appetizer or dessert – perfect for a holiday potluck or to make and give to friends and family.
This snack mix is a super easy thing to make, even when you’re pressed for time. I added red and green M&Ms to make it festive for a holiday, but you could switch up the colors for any special occasion!
