It's back to school time, not just for our kids but also for Carolyn and myself since we are both teachers. We have started this tradition of a back-to school bake-off night where we meet up and bake as many breakfast foods, lunch snacks and treats as we can. We portion them in baggies to fit in lunch boxes and it makes packing a lot healthier and easier. We also have a lot of fun drinking too much coffee late at night (thought about wine but we were worried the baking quality would suffer!) All of the recipes are ALDI-friendly (nothing they don't carry).
