Back to School | August 18, 2016
When I think of Back to School, I think of freshly sharpened pencils, new clothes smell, and a brand new lunch box. My mother was a world class lunch packer. There was always fruit, carrot sticks, some kind of baked good (mostly home made but sometimes there was a Tastycake, which I was naive to think was better – WRONG) and the traditional sandwich. In my house, crust was a must. Like the fiber in an apple peel, my mom told us that the crust was where the vitamins were, 🙂 Oh and there was always a note and a sticker – I love you too Mom.
Knowing I wanted to write a Back to School post, I enlisted two fantastic helpers and an equally wonderful photographer to help me. I sent a variety of Tovolo Sandwich Shapers to the littles in my family – Isaac who is 6 and starting first grade. He knows a thing or two about making school sandwiches. And his lovely assistant/cousin, 2 year old Avery. As you will see from the photos, they did a terrific job. My favorite pictures are of Isaac with jelly on his nose. He works very hard and takes helping me seriously.
