It's already time for many of us to think about the kids going back to school. No offense, but who thought of putting kids back to school in August? My dad always remembered school starting after Labor Day because his birthday generally fell right around the first day of school. It's hard to start school during the middle of summer. The kids go to school for a week and a half and they get another holiday. They really only start into homework and after school activities after Labor Day.
Am I the only one who has a hard time getting into school mode before September?
If you're like me and the thought of getting back into "school mode" doesn't sound appealing when it's 95 degrees outside, than let's talk trail mix. Last year we made peanut butter and jelly trail mix. This year we're talking caramel apple trail mix.
It's easy, versatile and simple to throw together and into your lunch. It's made even easier with the help of Chiquita Apple Slices. Each apple slice pack comes in pre packaged bags so you just throw them in your kids lunch. They also come in family packs too! Each single serving pack is washed and ready to eat and is only 30-80 calories per pack. Don't forget to pack a note in your kids lunch too! We love these school lunch jokes.
