Back to School




The children have started school again (we must be the last in the country to start)!  This year we have a 10th grader and a 7th grader and I would be lying if I said it didn't smart a little. I mean this is Harris headed off to school the first year I was blogging.  How has so much time gone by?  After all these years of making back to school dinners and desserts (10 years so far) I think I found my favorite dessert.  This smart cookie checks off all the boxes: easy, clever/cute and really, really tasty.  I used the recipe on the back of the dark chocolate chips, put it in a tart pan and baked for about 30 minutes (it wasn't quite done which was perfection for my crew).

It was pouring down rain so pictures were taken quickly and by this Mama who was trying not to get all the junk that's by our back stoop in the picture (shoes, boots, umbrellas, you name it, it's been there).


Grace wasn't thrilled because it was dress down/spirit day at school!


Also?  When I picked up Harris I thought he must have had a great day at school because he literally skipped to the car.  Turns out that no, he was just high stepping as to not mess up his new shoes.  What is up with 12/13 year old boys and their shoes?
