Friends, it’s our FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL!
It’s always such a bittersweet day over here. We’re so excited about all the fun things ahead this school year, but geez, it’s hard to see summer go.
Since today’s the big day, that means, it’s time for our family’s traditional FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL MENU 🙂 .
Over the years, we’ve created this menu and stick to it pretty faithfully each and every year as we head back to school. Whether you’re looking for a few new ideas for the school year or just want to see what my family will be eating today, I have it all for you right here.
Whether you’re going back as a teacher or sending your kiddos back today (or both!), here’s sending you lots of love!
Happy First Day of School!
Maple Sausage Balls are a MUST at our house!! Once you make these, you’ll want to make them again and again! We make these year around, but they’re especially delicious on the first day of school.
Another savory breakfast option for your family…my Brown Sugar Bacon Wrapped Pigs in a Blanket!!
Years and years ago, my kids requested my green pancakes (which we typically make on St. Paddy’s Day!) for their first day of school breakfast and well, it stuck! We now make these every single year on the first day!
If green pancakes aren’t your thing…
…then you should try my Apple Bacon Pancakes instead! They are AMAZING!!
We always, always have my Butterscotch Maple No Bake Cookies after school on the first day. It’s such a special tradition!!
You can also always make these Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies too or…
...these Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwich Cookies!
For dinner, our tradition is lasagna 🙂 . You can make either my delicious g-free version or…
…my Provolone Lasagna. Both are winning first day of school recipes!
Do you have back to school recipe traditions? If so, I want to hear about them!! These foods are always such sweet ways to celebrate a new school year.
Happy first day!! xo
Ouu I love a good lasagna! Making my mouth water for dinner when I haven’t even had breakfast yet HA! Also, #8 – candles truly are problem solvers 😉
Love your back to school recipes!! I am curious if you have any puppy food recipes? Thanks!!!!

I do not! I should though!
Hi Shay, I’m a big fan. Can’t wait to try the GF version of your Lasagna. Which noodles do you use? The link is not working. Also, where did you get the “First Day of” sign? I like the minimalist chalkboard. Thank you for posting quality contents.💕

I buy them on Amazon!! https://www.amazon.com/Barilla-Gluten-Free-Ready-Lasagne/dp/B07MM68PFS/ref=sr_1_1?crid=1V0YQNXVEXUDK&keywords=gluten-free+lasagna+noodles&qid=1660559092&sprefix=gluten-free+lsa%2Caps%2C97&sr=8-1
The key is to soak them in water about 10 minutes before using them!!
And that sweet sign is super old from Etsy 😉 .
