It is hard to believe summer is over, and the start of the new school year is already here. Preparing for back-to-school can be stressful and chaotic. Whether it’s shopping for new stylish school outfits, new shoes, new book bags and lunch boxes, lunch to go into the lunch boxes, a never-ending list of school supplies, electronics, and so much. We know that once school is over for the day, most kids come running in the door ravenous. Every single day, like clockwork. One of my favorite snacks I use to love to eat and make after school was a mini grilled cheese sandwich in the grilled cheese maker, where the cheese would ooze out on the sides. Delicious!
