For many, today marks the first day of the school season — we've had so much fun seeing all the Back to School photos popping up in our Facebook feeds. In preparation for this time of year, Tim published a fun throwback series all about his favorite school lunches his mom used to make when he was going to school over on E.A.T. last week.
Here's the full roundup:
1 Cream Cheese & Olives
2 Peanut Butter & Banana
3 Pimento Cheese (a southern staple)
5 Tuna Fish
This was a fun series for both Tim and I — he had fun thinking back and recreating the lunches his mom had made and I loved getting to try each different sandwich — many of which were new to me. Tuna and pimento cheese were staples in our house, but cream cheese & olives, peanut butter & banana, and the fluffernutters were all welcome new additions to my repertoire. The Friday fluffernutter pretty much made me feel like I could run a marathon after eating it — followed up by that old familiar carb crash that makes you regret everything you just ate. I had no idea this sandwich was a thing.

Whether you or your little ones are headed back to school or simply embarking on a new creative adventure, here's to the start of the new season and feelings of a fresh start.
