Carrots, cheese stickes, cheese chunks, crackers, milk, pb on grahms/crackers/celery, small bowl of cereal, popcorn, granola in milk, fruit of any kind, nuts of any kind, granola bars... I usually make cookies for the first day of after-school as a treat. :
It's so very 7th heaven-y cheesy. But for some unexplainable reason, i look forward to it every week. Go figure...
